Giving Back

On top of our efforts to support local communities and our dedication to sustainable travel practices, we give back by contributing to and working with other organizations committed to conserving our natural world.

Adventure Unbound supports international conservation efforts in a variety of ways, including:

  • Contributing to Idaho Rivers United and their river conservation efforts with both financial support and time. Our guests are also invited to support IRU through our pass-through program, which raises notable contributions every year.
  • Providing guests who book a Galápagos trip with Adventure Unbound with a voluntary opt-in donation to the International Galápagos Tour Operator’s Association (IGTOA). Adventure Unbound guests have donated more than $35,000, an incredible effort that helps keep the vulnerable and unique Galápagos Islands’ ecosystem healthy.
  • Being actively involved with, and financially supporting, several conservation groups listed below.

We encourage you to learn more about our and our partners’ conservation efforts and campaign for responsible adventure travel. We value our guests’ continued support of the following organizations as well as any other conservation groups they choose to support.
