GOOD Awaits: Regenerative Tourism Experience

A 13 Day Regenerative Tourism Experience

2024 Dates TBC

This trip has been designed as a result of over a year of research and exploration of regenerative tourism practice and potential in Aotearoa New Zealand. We’re fiercely aware of the volatile and uncertain world we are living in, and believe that tourism has a role to play in the essential work of reconnecting with our places, nature and each other. GOOD Awaits is designed as a model of a regenerative travel experience, intended to educate and inspire participants while uplifting host communities and places. 

This trip has been designed to visit partner hosts who will ground the experience in a local understanding of place and community. Each partner host has been chosen because of the amazing regenerative work they are doing in their places. Regenerative practice is so much about collaboration and connection, so we hope to weave together the experiences each of these partner hosts has to offer in a way that tells a story of passion and hope.

We seek to reduce our environmental impact as much as possible, and to contribute to the regeneration of habitats and ecosystems. This includes measuring, reducing and offsetting our carbon emissions, minimising waste, and partnering with businesses committed to the stewardship of their natural environments. A significant aspect of the GOOD Awaits experience will be about reconnecting with nature, and we acknowledge the privilege and responsibility of visiting taonga (treasured) and often endangered ecosystems.
