Humboldt Society is a travel agency whose objective is to guide and help passionate travelers by offering them unique solutions and services.
In history we find great travelers, but, if there is a traveler who exemplifies the idea that “”Travelling is knowledge””, this is Alexander Von Humboldt (1769-1859), with permission of Charles Darwin. This German naturalist explored all of South America, part of Central Asia and Europe devoting much of his personal fortune and giving his name to a race of penguin, the emblem of our company.
Today’s passionate traveler looks for unique and personalized experiences, flees from package trips, standard or conventional travel agencies which can not provide flexibility or differentiation. Looking freedom to create their own trip and their own experience.
Traveling by yourself does not have to mean traveling solely, Humboldt Society aims to accompany the 21st century traveler.
We design 100% tailor-made trips, full of advantages and exclusive services.
We look after the interests and desires of our travelers, facing a depersonalized and global industry.
We provide added value when you enjoy what you love, travel.
We protect our travelers, seeking the real value of things rather than their price.
We offset 100% of the carbon footprint generated by our clients and staff’s flights, and also ground transportation, through our financing of large reforestation projects around the world.
Through our participation, our goal is to combat global warming by adopting a highly practical approach aimed at having a strong local social and economic impact. We are one of the first companies in the travel market to take this step.
How does carbon absorption work?
Today, air transport represents 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. While technological advancements should allow us to travel cleanly in the future, the best solution today (as we continue to travel) is to absorb the CO2 emissions generated by travel through tree planting. By funding reforestation projects worldwide, the Humboldt Society contributes to the absorption of carbon dioxide worldwide.
What is carbon neutrality?
Each trip has a measurable impact on global warming. We assess the amount of CO2 emissions related to each of our travelers and calculate the number of trees that must be planted to absorb the correct amount of CO2.
Objectives of the IPCC
According to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), we need to reduce our CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030 to stay below the critical threshold of global warming (+1.5 ° C). The goal is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, an ambitious goal but one that can be achieved if all countries and industries start taking action today.
