Exito Travel has long been a proponent for sustainable travel. When the company was formed in the early 1990s, our original company was named Eco-Travel. We have worked with Trees, Water & People
More recently, Exito teamed with Sustainable Travel International to support the development of a lenga tree nursery in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. More than one-fifth of Torres del Paine has been affected by manmade wildfires since 1985. The upcoming lenga tree nursery will increase the rate of reforestation in park and reduce the cost of each seedling from $5 to $3.
The lenga tree nursery is being built through the Torres del Paine Legacy Fund, a Travel Philanthropy platform that was developed by Sustainable Travel International in 2014. In the fall of 2015, Exito Travel agreed to match donations. This motivated other ATTA (Adventiure Travel Tarade Association) members to donate. At the end, $58,000 was raised.
