To volunteer abroad or engage in ethical travel experiences can turn a holiday into something far more memorable. We get so much out of the incredible places we visit, but there’s nothing more rewarding than giving something back. Our volunteer holidays and ethical experiences are a way to discover new things about other cultures and communities, whilst discovering new things about yourself.
If you want to make your travel experience really mean something, we’ve got some eye-opening Me to We sustainable travel opportunities on some of our most popular trips.
Take our Galapagos and Andes trip – where you can breathe in some of the most biodiverse beauty spots in the world in one spectacular volunteer program.
After exploring Quito and the deepest Amazon rainforest, it’s time to discover the secluded, mystical Minga Lodge, where you’ll meet your Me to We rep. Me to We are the gold standard for volunteer travel, and they’ll help you meet local community members and learn about all the amazing initiatives that are working so hard to improve the lives of locals.
Even on the trips we offer that don’t centre around volunteering, we offer ethical travel experiences that work to offer something to our core Contiki Cares pillars of People, Planet & Wildlife.
Whether it’s visiting a women’s cooperative in Iran, counting sharks in the Galapagos or cleaning up beaches in Australia, we make sure that sustainable travel is at the forefront of everything we do. Plus, from 2019 all our team on the road will have our new Contiki water bottle, that provides safer drinking water wherever you are, helping to eliminate single use plastics. We’re even subsidising 50% of the cost of the bottle so all of our travellers can pick one up and stop using plastic bottles when it isn’t necessary.
No matter which trip you choose, our volunteering trips and sustainable experiences deliver magical, life-changing experiences that leave regular holidays in the shade. Don’t just leave a footprint; leave a positive impact.
