People will always want to travel and seek out varied experiences. Mainstream tourism often misses the point behind “travelling” when they presume that every traveller has the same mindset and every need is the same. We believe that a travel curator’s responsibility goes beyond just serving pre-packaged tours or run-of-the-mill vanilla experiences.
As an ecotravel company based in Finland specializing on experiential travel, GreenEscape aims to cater mindful experiences which would inspire a desire for sustainable living, in coexistence with nature. We want to transcend beyond ticking off a bucket list of countries or hop-on hop-off activities, rather indulge in immersive authentic experiences, which will help you to grow in life and reconnect with nature. We aspire our travellers to be global citizens with a willingness to adopt responsible tourism practices and an openness to seek out unconventional authentic experiences, explore offbeat destinations and embrace new cultures.
Our team comprising of environmental and climate change researchers who are hardcore travellers believe that sustainable and responsible ecotourism practices can have an enormous impact to bring about positive changes and bring together communities. It is this though that had resulted in the birth of GreenEscape Oy/Ltd in Finland, one of the most eco-friendly destinations.
More than ever, the present times require a change in our travel attitude. Mass tourism has greatly impacted the local environment causing serious problems such as overexploitation of natural resources, increased emissions, pollution and waste problems. Ecotourism or Ecotours, by far has still mostly remained as highly romanticized concept, largely abstract and appealing to only a certain group of people. Our eco-friendly green tours support local communities and resources, improving local economy and instigating positive environmental changes. In the present realm of rapidly changing climate, we urge our travellers to adopt environmental values when they jet off to another adventure.
Our goal as an experiential ecotravel operator in Europe and Asia is to redefine the idea of ecotourism, to make it a fun, fascinating and enticing concept for all traveller profiles. We aim to identify offbeat travel destinations all over the world, empower local entrepreneurs and curate authentic local experiences by adopting the best responsible and sustainable tourism practices.
GreenEscape Ltd is a Finland-based Destination Management Company (DMC). We focus on experiential traveling to relatively undisturbed and undervisited areas of immense natural, cultural and historical significance for a wholesome travel experience in the host destination. We aspire to redefine and rebrand the concept of ‘’sustainable tourism’’, which has turned into a ‘’buzzword’’ currently into a solid and practical yet fun and sumptuous rewilding experience for everyone.
The driving force behind our company are the local enterprises and we aspire to maintain a close personal connection with each of our collaborators to develop a global network of tourism-based entrepreneurs large enough to create a significant impact on the general outlook and practice of sustainable tourism practices.
Our golden rule is to never offer an itinerary, include a destination or partnership with another company unless our team has personally visited the place, have done 100% verification of the ground truth and have personally bench-marked the itinerary. We intend to foster ‘clean sustainable tourism’ practices by promoting recycling, reducing the usage of environmentally harmful substances such as one-time use plastics, encouraging the use of organic biodegradable materials, use of public transportation, promoting local small and medium enterprises and investing in environment rehabilitation programs.
We are a team of international environmental researchers-turned-ecotourism entrepreneurs, who are passionate travellers wanting to inspire and be inspired to create a niche for sustainable and responsible traveling. With our unique East-meets-West families in Finland, our goals of melting cultural boundaries cannot get any more personal.
