Luxury Adventures has adopted, and adapted this "Environmental care code" out of a responsibility that we feel for the environment. Our company has taken a sustainable approach to tourism and is committed to preserving the precious natural heritage of these unique countries. We expect that anyone participating in trip with us adheres to these guidelines and treats the environment with the respect it deserves.
The land is the property of a great family, some of whom are living, a few of whom are dead, most of whom are yet to come.
9 Point Checklist
Protect Plants, Animals and Marinelife
Treat forests, wildlife and marinelife with care and respect. They are unique and often rare.
Litter is unattractive, harmful to wildlife/marinelife, pollutes water and can increase vermin and disease. Plan your visits to reduce rubbish, and carry out what you carry in.
Dispose of Toilet waste Properly
Improper disposal of toilet waste can contaminate water, damage the environment, and is culturally offensive. Use disposal facilities where provided or bury waste in a shallow hole at least 50 metres away from waterways
Keep the Ocean, Streams and Lakes Clean
When cleaning and washing, take the water and wash well away from the water source. Because soaps and detergents are harmful to water-life, drain used water into the soil to allow it to be filtered. If you suspect the water may be contaminated, either boil it for at least 3 minutes, or filter it, or chemically treat it.
Take Care With Fires
Portable fuel stoves are less harmful to the environment and are more efficient than fires. If you do use a fire, keep it small, use only dead wood and make sure it is out by dousing it with water and checking the ashes before leaving.
Keep to the Track
By keeping to the track, where one exists, you lessen the chance of damaging fragile plants.
People visit the backcountry and rural areas for many reasons. Be considerate of other visitors who also have a right to enjoy the natural environment.
Respect Our Cultural Heritage
Many places in New Zealand, Australia, Tahiti and Fiji have spiritual and historical significance. Treat these places with consideration and respect.
Enjoy Your Visit
Enjoy your outdoor experience. Take a last look before leaving an area; will the next visitor know that you have been there? Protect the environment for your own sake, for the sake of those who come after you, and for the environment itself.
