“Live Changing Experiences” – The initiative for Fair Trails® goes back to us Trail Angels, on the occasion of the United Nations International Year 2017, which was dedicated to “Sustainable Tourism for Development”. Committed to this mission, we have developed an innovative product design for fair, transformative travel in developing and emerging countries. We have already implemented this concept in the form of two pilot projects in the Himalayas:
the “Snow Leopard Trail” and the “Local Life Trail”. Our engagement was made possible through a Private Public Partnership (PPP), together with the Austrian Development Agency, the official Austrian agency for development cooperation and ENNOVENT, a renowned international company for development cooperation.
With Fair Trails® we want to trigger change through responsible travel. Based on a new, fair and transparent business model. Thus, we have established our own Fair Trails booking centre in Nepal and invested in the development of its capacities. Through this knowledge transfer, the capacities have emerged in Nepal to take ownership of both the experience design for transformative travel experiences and the impact design for optimising regional value creation and protecting natural and cultural resources. Only in this way can the potential of the destinations be raised, the incomparable knowledge of the local Fair Trails experts be put to good use and selected Fair Trails projects be efficiently supported. From nature conservation to the preservation of cultural heritage to the promotion of social development. Fair Trails thus triggers a long-term change in the regions, but also in the travellers. The latter immerse themselves deeply in the great stories and challenges of the destinations through unique travel experiences, thus becoming part of the project and remaining connected to it in the long term as “ambassadors”. Together with our partners we currently strive to scale the Fair Trails® model beyond the Himalayas to other regions of the world.
