Top Sustainable Travel Destinations for 2013

Each year, we see different countries capture the collective attention of the travel community as they plan their next adventures. Here’s three of the top destinations that we expect to send a lot of travelers packing to in the coming year.


A perennial favorite, we expect to continue to see Peru as a leading choice for those looking to travel with a purpose. Between off-the-beaten track home stays in traditional Andean villages, outdoor adventures in the exhilarating jungle and desert regions, and historically-rich exploration of amazing sites like Cuzco and Machu Picchu, Peru has it all. With over 15 years of experience in the country, 7 great sample itineraries to get you started, and the ability to customize your experience with us, we look forward to helping many more people plan their Peruvian adventures this year.


This long-hidden Himalayan kingdom has emerged in recent years as top pick for travelers seeking unique adventures in breathtaking landscapes among a well-preserved authentic culture. Our spring and fall itineraries both offer the rare opportunity to get off the tourist track and live with traditional Bhutanese nomads, and our Bhutan travelers are coming home raving about their experiences. Besides enrolling now for Spring Cultural Immersion and Fall Trailing Nomads 2013 Programs, we can also work with you to craft a customized itinerary for your own exploration of the Land of the Thunder Dragon.


Huaorani greeting plane Ecuador

We’re happy to be re-introducing this fascinating South American country to our lineup in 2013. We’ve got staff headed to Ecuador later this month to brush up on the latest opportunities and sustainable travel options there, including a great new eco-focused cruise in the Galapagos Islands. Stay tuned for our new Ecuador programs to debut next month, and shoot an email to angela (at) crookedtrails (dot) org to get on the advance interest list for Ecuador.
