GeoEx is dedicated to living up to our responsibilities to the places that have touched and inspired us. We work diligently with NGOs and our representatives in the field to develop and share practices that minimize our footprint and generate meaningful contributions to local economies.
We’re mindful that other countries and cultures may have different perspectives than ours, and we work with local communities in developing appropriate and safe itineraries and routes; selecting responsible hotels, boats, and other transportation; choosing informed local guides; educating our travelers about local conditions and customs; and adhering to minimum-impact practices.
Local & Global Footprint
We’re the first to acknowledge that bringing travelers to remote places inevitably leaves environmental and cultural footprints. But we believe fervently that our trips provide meaningful and important ways for local communities and governments to create sustainable forms of development, which in turn relieve pressure on resources and expand perspectives. Our 33 years of experience have taught us that, when it’s intelligently done, travel is a net plus for the visitor and the visited alike.
We’re continually impressed by our guests who return from their GeoEx journeys with a passion to make a difference and the new relationships to do so. They exemplify travel’s remarkable power to transform people and the planet for the better.
