GOOD Travel inspires travelers and tourism businesses to transform one of the world’s largest industries into a force for good. I learned about GOOD Travel three years ago and have loved their mission to promote sustainable, responsible travel ever since. Each trip GOOD Travel offers has been thoughtfully designed with the intention to give travelers a once-in-a-lifetime experience while contributing in a positive way to the communities and places we visit. With the threat of over-tourism, climate change, and the rise in disrespectful tourism practices, I personally can’t think of a more impactful way to travel.

What is GOOD about this trip?
GOOD Travel has carefully designed this trip to Fiji in a way that you and your daughter will have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure while contributing positively to the places and communities you visit.
GOOD Travel has partnered with the wonderful Talanoa Treks who share their commitment to sustainable and responsible tourism and work in partnership with local communities. You and your daughter will be led by an experienced Fijian guide who will allow you to connect with Fijian culture and communities along your journey.
This is also a particularly special itinerary because it includes an overnight stay on Uto ni Yalo, a beautiful traditional Fijian sailing vessel that, through the Uto ni Yalo Trust, supports storytelling, education, and protection of the ocean by sharing Fiji’s sailing traditions and knowledge with young people. Mother and daughters on this trip will get to sail in the calm and crystal clear blue waters of Fiji while engaging with Uto’s crew and learning about Fiji’s culture and history.
On top of all this, GOOD Travel will donate $150 USD of your fees to the Uto ni Yalo Trust to continue their incredible work, offset all your in-country carbon emissions, and ensure that all your accommodation, food, and activities throughout your stay are contributing in a positive way.

A taste of the trip
Sounds wonderful, Nicole, but I flinched at the cost.
Yes, it is expensive! Fiji is not cheap!
Sounds like lots of fun.
