AltruVistas, Malia Everette, Mountain View, Hawaii, USA
AltruVistas is a global ethical travel company.
We plan journeys for organizations, membership associations, educational institutions, businesses, foundations, travel agencies, and individuals with the desire to create their own incomparable brand of ethical travel. Wherever you want to go, and whatever your group wants to learn, we will plan logistics and curate your itinerary! We focus on ethical exchange with partner organizations in our host countries.
In order for travel to be truly ethical, it needs to incorporate the best practices of both ecological and social responsibility. Bringing Equity to Tourism is what AltruVistas does:
We promote transformational philanthropy in the sustainable travel industry because we deeply believe that it is ethically necessary. Our logo is based on the Hawaiian symbol for Thundering Grace, and represents the transactive spirit of human generosity; our journeys are an exchange.
AltruVistas Journeys provide a natural interlocutor between the desires of the global traveler and the socio-economic needs of some of the world’s most remote, heritage-rich communities and their natural and cultural sites.
Share your ideas and learning or donor goals with us, and together we will craft an immersion journey for you. Let us take care of the logistics and customer service while you relax with the confidence that you are offering a one-of-a-kind, privately branded tour solely for your members.
Our goal is to provide you with ethical, comprehensive, educational, and philanthropic travel-planning services so that you can have the adventure of a lifetime: a culturally insightful, engaging, comfortable, and worry-free journey that synergistically benefits the local economy, your hosts, and important causes— and even highlights the good work you are doing in the world!
