About

Here To Travel is all about helping good, kind and conscious people to become even better adventurers, bringing about positive action and progressive change through their travels.

If you’re anything like us, you want your travels and adventures to have a positive impact on people, places and the planet

We’re all individuals, but when we come together as a mindful and conscious travel community, wonderful things can happen.

We’re on a journey to becoming better, kinder and more conscious travellers. We’d love it if you came with us.

Here To Travel is for everyone

You might already be on your journey to becoming a conscious traveller or you might simply be intrigued by the idea of improving your travel experiences through kind and mindful decisions and action.

Whoever you are, we can help you, through our inspiring travel guides and our informative courses, to becoming a champion of kind and conscious travel.

A kind and conscious traveller centres kindness, mindfulness and sustainability into every part of their travel experiences

Most people book trips without much thought as to what impact their travel has on people, places and the planet, be that a positive or negative impact. Everything we do has consequences, but the excitement that travel brings often masks the reality of our actions.

A kind & conscious traveller seeks to reverse this.

They do so in the hope that they can limit any damage to local communities, the environment and wildlife. 

They also seek to introduce positive action into their travel plans which not only brings development, regeneration and progression but also helps to enrich the travel experience.

We declare a climate emergency

We all have a role in fixing our broken planet, and Here To Travel is no exception. Accepting the evidence and the facts about climate change is the first step to formulating a plan of action.

As part of our commitment to tackling climate change, we are declaring a climate emergency.

Nobody’s perfect

Becoming a kind and conscious traveller is very much a journey. We’re on that journey too.

We’re not perfect and we never will be. But, we’re trying our best to do the right thing.

The issues that we’re all trying to tackle as part of our journey are incredibly interwoven and nuanced. Unpicking the tapestry and establishing what is and isn’t the right course of action requires time, thought, discussion and evidence.

Humans have some solutions, but we’re still working on others.
