The GreenEscapian Life

Humans are naturally explorers and wild beings in pursuit of new culture and 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 specializing on experiential and immersion travel, GreenEscape aspires to curate mindful travel experiences inspiring a desire for sustainable living, in coexistence with the nature. We want to transcend beyond the “ticking off the bucket list” and “hop-on hop-off sightseeing” and indulge in genuine and mindful experiences, which will help us 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 explore offbeat destinations, seek out unconventional local experiences, meet the locals and embrace new cultures uninhibitedly and wholeheartedly.

New Frontiers in Experiencing Sustainable Tourism and Ecotourism

Our team comprising of environment-climate change researchers cum hardcore travellers believe that sustainable ecotourism practices could have an enormous bearing to bring about positive changes in life and environment, and bring together communities – the thought which had led to the subsequent birth of GreenEscape Oy, a Destination Management Company in Finland, one of the most eco-friendly destinations of the world.

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 directly and promote the use of local 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 is to redefine the idea of ecotourism, to make it a fun, fascinating and enticing concept for all traveller profiles. GreenEscape seek to identify offbeat and green travel destinations all over the world, empower local entrepreneurs and curate authentic local experiences by adopting the best responsible and sustainable tourism practices.

What we do

GreenEscape Oy 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.
