Responsible Travel Items
When it comes to adventures overseas, the experience of trekking the Inca Trail is utterly unique. Every year, hundreds of travellers decide to tackle this route, which leads to the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu - and its popularity means taking eco-friendly steps is all the more important.
When on your gap year it’s important to make sure that your travels impact positively on the community. In this current climate we all have to ensure that we travel responsibly and to think about how our travel has social, ethical and environmental implications. Even on volunteering gap years where our aim is to help, we still need to be aware of the impact we have. So, here are out top tips on how to travel responsibly.
Going on a gap year can certainly be an exciting prospect; however, while you'll get to travel to exotic locations and experience different cultures it is important that your time away does not do long-term harm to the places you see and people you visit.
