Sustainable Tourism

We from ANDES VIVA do deeply believe that Tourism does not only help to grow, but that it can also help to sensitize society for a respectful and responsible interaction with the environment and its ethnic roots. The preservation of the natural and cultural resources/treasures is a predominant goal on an international level, and ANDES VIVA is part of this process.

We do support actively projects and elements of responsible and sustainable tourism. Programs which do meet these benchmarks are carefully identified and represent the mayor part of the product range ANDES VIVA offers.

This selection is realized through a modern system of support for sustainably oriented service providers.

This concept allows the certification with a “seal of approval for sustainable tourism” to recognize the efforts of the best service providers in the tourism industry. We encourage all service providers to follow the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism.
