Our Philosophy of Sustainable Polar Traveling

And our efforts to be a responsible employer

We help you travel more responsibly

Discovering the world should generate positive impacts. That’s why your trips will always comply with specific requirements to produce the best sustainable effects while having the time of your life. Susana, our CSR responsible, gives you more details in this video.

Your trip contributes to Ventura’s holistic conservation project

A portion of your trip price goes toward Ventura’s Conservation Project, an initiative of the V Social Foundation launching in 2024. The conservation project will work with local people to give them ownership of their territory, protect the environment through reforestation and regeneration efforts, and prepare the community for taking over control of the project within five years. So, your trip contributes to environmental protection and truly shows how travel can be a force for good! Together, we’re developing something really special. Stay tuned for more details about how you are part of making a difference through tourism.

v-social-logo

Your trip supports the VSocial foundation

The VSocial foundation's first commitment already took place during the first Viventura trips in 2001. In 2005, vSocial was officially recognized. The vision of this foundation is to bring positive change in the communities we support by encouraging people to benefit from sustainable tourism. The goal is to strengthen communities, preserve their cultural richness and accompany them on the path to self-management. Ventura TRAVEL supports the VSocial foundation every year with more than €120,000. For this, a donation of 25 € is included in the price of each tour of our brands. Our travelers also have the opportunity to visit several projects during their trips to specific destinations.

sustainability

Your trip is sustainably built

Through sustainable travel planning, we try to avoid domestic flights as much as possible during our travels. In addition, the majority of our trips have a minimum duration of 14 days and the group size is limited to a maximum of 15 participants. Clients stay mainly in family-run, middle-class hotels. Travelers and the local population are informed about environmental protection measures. Local tour guides receive annual training on topics such as country knowledge, first aid training, environmental protection and social commitment. In addition, our local partners, with whom we encourage long-term contracts, are called upon to constantly develop their services in a sustainable, socially and environmentally friendly manner. And we monitor the emissions caused by flights and services at the destination, and we continually strive to minimize them.
