“We firmly believe in our responsibility to operate sustainably, treading lightly in the environments and communities in which we travel,” said Lauren Howard, Director of Marketing and Digital Strategy of Contiki Holidays Canada. “Contiki works with local communities everywhere we visit, whether that’s supporting family run farms in rural Australia or restaurants that promote social mobility in Cambodia. Our new trips created in partnership with ME to WE provide our travellers with hands on opportunities to embed themselves in some of the incredible projects supported by ME to WE, making for an unforgettable and truly rewarding travel experience.”

As for why Bolivia, Sheralyn Berry, Vice President of Sales of Contiki Holidays Canada says the country is a natural step for the company.

“It’s an incredible destination that provides unforgettable experiences for our travellers – whether they’re after cities, culture, or out-of-this world landscapes and scenery,” she said. “With Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil all sharing borders with Bolivia it’s a great connector for our other trips, allowing travellers to extend their journeys throughout the region.”
