Wilderness Adventures understands the importance in reducing the carbon footprint we can leave behind when going on our adventure camp trips. On each and every one of our adventures, we promise to leave these special places exactly how we found them.
Here are some eco-friendly tips that we at Wilderness Adventures follow, and are also a great way for you to make a difference in your travels this summer too:
Use public transportation when possible. Public transportation options, such as the bus or train, can help to ensure that you are not creating any additional carbon emissions that are created from private transportation. Public transportation is also a good way to experience the local people and culture, in turn, enhancing your travel experience even more.
Use alternative means of transportation when possible. More rewarding experiences are available when traveling with alternative means of transportation. For example, backpacking through the Blue Ridge Mountains is far more enjoyable than driving your car through the mountains. By utilizing alternative means, such as bikes and walking, you are not only contributing the well being of the environment, but you are enhancing the experience of your travels as well.
Learn how to zero-impact camp. Camping is perhaps one of the most enjoyable activities to do in the great outdoors. However, it can also be very damaging. Ensure that you learn how to reduce your carbon footprint when camping, as well as practice it safely.
Travel in numbers. Let’s face it, sometimes your travels do require the use of carbon emissions. If this is the case, consider traveling with small groups, which will have less of an impact on the environment.
Stay on the trail. It is critical that you remember to stay on designated and maintained trails. While it may be an adventure to remember when going off trail, by doing so, you take the risk of harming endangered plants and wildlife.
Wilderness Adventures has set the standard when it comes to using sustainable travel and zero-impact camping on their adventure trips. Visit us to learn more about our adventure trips and how we support our local communities and economies through our low-impact travel.
