1 2 3


Traveling has the power to change you, but travelers can also change a place — for better or worse. Make a positive impact the next time you travel with one of these seven trips that are full of adventure and also benefit local communities and conservation. Ecuador's Trees and Trails: On this trip to Ecuador’s Cotopaxi Volcano, lend a hand with reforestation efforts, painting interpretive signs and performing trail maintenance. While there, enjoy horseback riding in the foothills, trekking in the Eastern Andean Cordillera and mountain biking in Cotopaxi National Park.

Bikes for Africa: TDA Global Cycling’s 7,000-mile Tour d’Afrique travels through 10 countries, departing from the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo, crossing the Equator and deserts, and traveling down the wildlife-rich “Elephant Highway” to finish in the shadow of Table Mountain in Cape Town. For every rider who completes the four-month tour, TDA donates a bicycle through its foundation and local partners to address transportation needs in Africa.

Tag Fish in Belize – Join Frontiers International Travel for a week of Permit fishing and tagging at Belcampo Lodge in Southern Belize. The goal of the satellite tagging effort is to determine what level of fishing the fishery can support and to identify the links between the fishing areas and Permit spawning locations.
