Travelling sustainably by supporting local communities and ecosystems, we are small enough to tread lightly, but big enough to make a difference.

Small group tours & tailor-made holidays to exceptional destinations. We offer a mixture of hiking holidays and cultural tours, always using local guides and teams, planting 15 trees for every client who travels with us.

Why Choose YellowWood?

We believe that sustainable tourism has a vital role to play in the world by positively contributing to the well-being and prosperity of our clients, and the local communities and ecosystems through which they travel. Working with and supporting local guides, suppliers, businesses and charities, we make sure that adventure funds stay local and are shared widely and fairly in all of our destinations.

We believe in a Build Back Better model known as Regenerative Tourism, the focus of which lies on helping local communities to prosper, share their love of place, and sustain their efforts and motivations to protect and care for their natural environments.

We seek to create life-affirming experiences for hosts and guests alike. The communities and places we visit are living systems, embedded within wider ecosystems and cultures, all of which are constantly evolving and adapting to one another, and which can be greatly enriched through these encounters.
