Whether you're looking for a place to stay, some adventurous activities or opportunities to connect with local people, or want to roll up your sleeves and volunteer for lasting impact, choose Fair Trade Tourism.

accomodation icon Accommodation includes urban hotels and guesthouses with organic vegetable gardens and solar power, coastal and safari lodges working in partnership with communities and conservation agencies, country houses and farm stays bringing tradition and heritage to today's travelers, city and seaside backpackers that are knit into the local cultural vibe, and unique accommodation that reflects traditional building methods and design.

activity icon Activities offer the excitement (and education) of treetop ziplines and shark cage diving, opportunities to engage with local people around a shared love of music, food, art and more, whale watching and eco-marine boat tours in a marine "Big 5" setting, and even golf where eco-friendly fairways and social investment programmes are as important as on-time tee-offs!

volunteering icon If you're looking for a chance to get more involved, rewarding and responsible volunteering experiences are also available. Those certified by Fair Trade Tourism ensure that impacts are meaningful, both for the destination and for volunteers.
