We believe in-tact ecosystems and diverse cultural heritage are the most precious — and vulnerable — gifts of our time.
As travel to emerging destinations expands, our platform helps to ensure this growth is community-led and inclusive — giving voice to those who may never accessed tourism dollars before, and proving that tourism can act as a meaningful alternative to resource extraction.
We acknowledge travel still has its costs, even if well-intended. We commit 5% of profits — the highest in the industry — to seeding local 'destination stewardship councils’ and supporting local-led conservation.
Traveling has always been a huge part of my life, but nothing compared to the unique, two week experience that Earthtones crafted for us in Northern Vietnam. Never would I have thought that these experiences could have been possible, but Justin and the Earthtones team listened so attentively to our desires as travelers, matching the experience to our interests simply perfectly. The highlight was a small town on the border of China and Vietnam, in a small village, where we stayed on a traditional cinnamon farm. We spent our days traveling on bikes through the mountains, helping carve the cinnamon bark off trees, and spending time with our host family, who took us around nearby villages and facilitated our engagement with the local community. These were moments that we couldn't even have imagined, and they touched us deeply. We were able to cook and eat dinner with local families, where we were truly guests rather than visitors. I don't think I will ever be able to travel again without Earthtones, because nothing will simply compare to such an amazing experience that was created for us.read more
Earthtones arranged an amazing journey to Iceland for myself and a group of friends. We wanted to experience Iceland in a unique way, but despite the country's increasing popularity, it's actually hard to plan a unique experience beyond Reykjavik and some other well known places. We wanted the real deal, and to feel the heart of the place, and Earthtones delivered. We ventured north into the fjords of Ísafjörður, sailing and backcountry skiing in remote and overlooked communities, tasting the local foods and making amazing new friends (Westfjorders were extremely friendly and English was widely-spoken, which definitely helps). I highly recommend Earthtones for bringing to life an outdoorsy and nature-fueled trip.read more
Absolute legend! Earthtones planned an end-to-end journey to Indonesia. Deep into the Balinesian forests, throughout the beautiful southern coast of Uluwatu, and sprawled along the quiet beaches of Lovina, we covered it all. Earthtones' ability to interact with local communities facilitated an experience unlike any journey I've embarked on. We found ourselves in the most scenic landscapes, surrounded by wonderful people, in such an energetically powerful place. To this day, when I start thinking of what my next journey will be, Earthtones will be the first place I start. I would do it all again 1,000 times over. Thank you for your exceptional service! Namaste.read more
We couldn't have been luckier to have Earthtones as our wayfinder throughout Ireland and Iceland. An unbelievably high-touch service provider, they curated and planned everything perfectly. Earthtones' ability to navigate through tourist traps to give you a taste of the underlying culture and an appreciation for the "way-out-there" places (an Icelandic fjord on a whim to find a magical, snowmelt swimming pool at the top) is second to none. Beyond being a service provider, Earthtones' love of travel is infectious. Do yourself the favor of not hesitating and task Earthtones with the heavy lifting.,read more
The ultimate experience concierge — Earthtones organized a trip to Alaska for me and my friends and it was probably the most memorable experience of my life. The epic Don Sheldon hut (before it turned into a feature of in-flight magazines) housed us and offered the most spectacular scenery in the region around Denali — the magnificent Ruth Amphitheater. Earthtones took care of everything and has the experience of a well-travelled adventurer that's hard to find anywhere else. Highly worthwhile!read more
