why impact travel?

Terms such as eco-tourism, ethical, responsible and sustainable travels are used loosely to describe different aspect of the same thing: the impact our travels have on economies, society and the environment. This is why we have decided to use a concept that unites all of the above: IMPACT TRAVEL.
