Your eco-friendly guide to adventuring sustainably.

Our Vision

To connect people to life-enriching travel experiences

We always have and always will strive to connect people to life-enriching travel experiences, and that means playing our part in protecting the planet. TourRadar has been built on the guiding belief that travel has the ability to not only enrich our lives but the lives of all living things around us. We believe that travel is a superpower that, when wielded correctly, can leave behind a lasting positive impact on a destination’s locals and natural environment. 

What does travel do? It broadens our understanding of the world around us, connects us with people from cultures vastly different from our own, enables developing communities to flourish, and teaches us to be in awe of the great natural beauty of our planet. Now, more than ever, we need to seize every opportunity to adopt responsible travel practices as TourRadar continues to connect you to life-enriching experiences with our trusted adventure operators.

Our Mission

To make it easy for travellers to tour responsibly

We understand that everyone does their best to live responsibly. At TourRadar, we are continuously challenging ourselves to make sure that your adventure can have a positive impact on people and the planet.

How?

We are showcasing how operators incorporate sustainability into their tours, so you know exactly what impact your trip can have. On our platform, you have the power to choose your adventure and book tours operated by businesses with sustainable initiatives, tours that are led by locals or are locally-owned, and tours where your purchase supports community development and/or environmental projects. We are currently refreshing our operator pages so that information on sustainability is more easily available to you.

We offer travellers the opportunity to offset the carbon created on tour. Through our partner, CHOOOSE, you can calculate the amount of carbon created from the 1) air travel 2) accommodation 3) ground transportation from your tour, and then contribute to our curated carbon mitigation projects to decrease your carbon footprint. 

We are building a bigger community of responsible travellers by providing information on responsible travel throughout our website and online magazine, Days to Come. Within our destination travel guides, you can now find tips on visiting your dream destination responsibly, as well as find information on how the destination itself is making sustainable travel possible.
