Where We Travel
What is Conscious Travel?
Conscious Travel Collective believes humanity, as a collective, must do everything possible to ensure the wellbeing of all people, places, and cultures, today and for the future.
We know that travel is a privilege and should not come at the expense of people today, or future generations. Travel is also an opportunity to empower communities, and bring about positive change in the world and ourselves!
We view conscious travel to be conducted in a way to ensure the greatest benefit for the local community, with respect shown for the natural environment, local and indigenous peoples.
Features of Every CTC Trip
Each of our trips is led by an amazing member of the local community. These legendary human beings serve to be your guide throughout your CTC journey and will introduce you to the locally-owned businesses that will help shape your experience.
Respect, Honor, Preserve
Every destination is home to an indigenous population. We honor them by acknowledging their culture, history and contribution. We also shed light on the truths of colonialism by sharing stories without hiding unpleasant realities.
Relax and unwind in comfort. All our trip accommodations are beautiful boutique properties that are comfortable and well located. Each has been carefully selected for its aesthetic and representation of local culture.
A Taste of the Destination
Literally! Amazing food and beverages are essential ingredients to every journey. Whether you are sampling Mezcal in Oaxaca, dining on oysters from the sea in Arcachon, learning about craft beer from Vermont’s finest brewer, or discovering the secrets of Inca farmers in Peru, you’ll connect with a variety of the destination's most passionate and talented creators of all things delicious!
Take it Outside!
Mother Nature makes the most incredible art, doesn’t she? The destinations we visit are naturally stunning so we always ensure our trips include ways for you to get outdoors and enjoy them! Most are designed to be friendly for all fitness levels. Sometimes being in nature simply means lounging in a hammock observing the dazzling display of the Milky Way above the Sacred Valley in Peru, or reclining in an Adirondack chair lakeside with your new friends as the golden hour light hits the trees during peak foliage season in Vermont— Shoes are optional.
Whether you’ve come for the outdoor adventure, to experience a new culture, or for the connection with like-minded spirits, the journey you seek is neatly packed into the Conscious Travel Collective experience.
How We Roll
Supporting the local business owners working to preserve and honor their community is our #1 priority. That’s why we work directly with our partners, without brokers or wholesales, to make sure they are paid fairly, and the dollars spent stay within the community.
Smaller is better? We think so! CTC trips skip the big buses and headsets to make room for more human connection. Our intimate group tours are designed for up to 8-10 travelers.
Your trip guides are proud to call the destination home, and eager to share their love and cultural insights with you! We always stay in locally owned (& gorgeous) boutique properties and dine with local restaurants for a truly immersive experience.
We get it, sometimes plans change, that’s why we created flexible booking so you can reschedule within 75 days from departure! Check the full cancellation policy for how we've got you covered.
