Why rewilding Europe Travel?

Why travel with us?

We're Rewilding Europe's Exclusive travel partner

When you travel with Rewilding Europe Travel you become an integral part of making Europe wilder. Your presence helps support communities and gives them the incentive to support rewilding and nature conservation. You help to create jobs, support rural communities and transform landscapes through rewilding.

OUR FOCUS IS COMMUNITY CENTRIC

Communities are at the heart of each Rewilding Landscape and play a critical role in the success of Rewilding Europe’s efforts to regenerate wild nature on a broad scale. Regeneration of rural landscapes is dependent on delivering nature-based livelihood development through tourism related jobs and support for local entrepreneurs. This strategy allows our trips to be immersive with access to a wide range of local actors from rewilding experts and guides to regenerative farmers and wineries.

A CATALYST FOR INTEREST IN THE WILD

Rewilding Europe Travel aims to generate pride, create public support and public partnerships. Through the nurture of nature Rewilding Europe is creating positive attitudes amongst stakeholders for a Europe with much more wild nature, wildlife and a thriving nature-based economy.

MAKING EUROPE A WILDER PLACE BY GOING ON HOLIDAY

We will immerse you in Europe’s wildest areas and explore off the beaten track rural communities at the heart of our Rewilding Landscapes. Your trip will directly contribute to making Europe wilder through a ‘rewilding credit’ contribution that helps our local partners implement rewilding strategies and actions.

WE’RE NOT JUST ANOTHER WILDLIFE WATCHING COMPANY

Although we immerse clients in Europe’s wildest landscapes we aim to go beyond simply wildlife watching. Through our work with local rewilding experts our trips explain what rewilding means and how tourism is helping to create nature-positive impacts that regenerate landscapes and communities, and restore biodiversity.

IMMERSIVE, EXPERTLY LED TRAVEL

Unique, immersive  itineraries supported by international experts, local rewilding staff and top notch wildlife guides. Our aim is to help our clients understand why rewilding is so important to nature and the positive impact it can have on climate change, biodiversity and community. Our local experts bring our Rewilding Landscapes alive and introduce you to the wildlife, places and people that make them unique.

SMALL GROUP, LOW IMPACT EUROPEAN TRAVEL

Exploring wild landscapes and the stealth needed for wildlife watching means we keep groups small, operating most groups between 6 and 12 clients. We focus on small group travel so that our impact on the Rewilding Landscapes and our carbon footprint for travel is minimised. Small group size allows everyone in the group to benefit from expert guiding and interaction with local experts and the host communities. We operate only in Europe with some Rewilding Landscape gateways accessible through train travel or via electric vehicle.

CARBON MITIGATION AND MEASURABLE IMPACT OF TRAVEL

Although we focus on managing and minimizing our carbon emissions, we acknowledge that there is residual CO2e that we must mitigate in order to tackle the impact it has on climate change.

Rewilding Europe Travel chooses to mitigate this carbon through supporting rewilding efforts that provide a carbon sink through the revitalisation of wild forest and peatlands. Sequestering carbon through this method also has important benefits for host communities and biodiversity.

In order to mitigate CO2e from our corporate activities and tours we have chosen to partner with Trees for Life, Rewilding Europe’s partner in the Affric Highlands Rewilding Landscape.

Nature Positive

Rewilding Europe Travel has developed a Sustainable Management System (SMS) that is based on compliance with Global Sustainable Tourism Council Criteria compliance for tour operators. The SMS helps Rewilding Europe Travel with effective sustainability planning, maximising social and economic benefits for the local community, enhancing cultural heritage, and reducing negative impacts to the environment. Rewilding Europe Travel’s longer term goal is to become a certified B Corp.

WE HAVE A STYLE OF TRIP FOR YOU

We have designed a range of trips to suit different clients and the Rewilding Landscapes we operate in. Some Rewilding Landscapes have more developed tourism infrastructure allowing us to use more luxurious accommodations. Some Rewilding Landscapes have virtually no tourism infrastructure so we operate trips that focus on ‘wild camping’ and close to nature experiences. We create and operate specialist photographic hides in locations that can offer exceptional wildlife observation and have a limited number of ProPhoto expeditions. Rewilding allows us to tap into nature’s calendar offering one-off adventures around migrations, reintroductions and extraordinary nature events.

SOME COMMON THEMES

Although our style of trips may vary, there are some common themes. Wild nature, daily walks in stunning landscapes, cultural immersion and sampling regional cuisine, wine and produce. We also include learning experiences on every trip from wine and olive oil tastings with experts to learning to cook a signature local recipe. You’ll also rub shoulders with a team of local rewilding experts who will explain how and why we rewild. At the end of your travels we hope you’ll return home an enthusiastic ambassador for rewilding and ready to rewild your own community and environment.
