Travel is an incredible gift. It has the ability to open our eyes, our hearts, and our minds to the unique cultures and spellbinding beauty of the natural world. But with this gift comes a responsibility - to protect the world as we know it.
Here is a wee bit about our efforts to ensure that the environment and communities we visit remain for generations to come.
HAGGiS Adventures Intiatives
Our Give Back Day - Loch Leven
Here at HAGGiS, we are passionate about protecting our beautiful wildlife and nature! Check out this epic video for some awesome footage of us volunteering at Loch Leven Nature Reserve.
"HAGGiS Adventures was able to join us here to help Scottish Natural Heritage to look after this national nature. Without volunteers like these we wouldn't be able to do this work "
Trees for Life
Plant a tree in the HAGGiS Grove
Imagine planting a tree that will stand forever as part of the restored Caledonian Forest. The HAGGiS Grove is a dedicated forest developed by HAGGiS customers and selected trips will get the chance to leave their own tree as their contribution to helping Scotland 'Stay Wild'. These trips will be met by a Ranger, hear about the work of Trees for Life and plant a tree in HAGGiS Grove.
Dedicate a Tree
If you are not lucky enough to travel on one of our selected trips you can still choose to leave your mark in Scotland. Our 'Dedicate a Tree' scheme allows you to have a tree planted in the HAGGiS Grove by Trees for Life on your behalf. You could also choose to gift a tree, perhaps one of the most eco-friendly and unique presents you can buy. You also get a certificate as proof of your dedication. Read more information on our work with Trees for Life.
We have pioneered an Eco Scheme where you can make an optional £2 donation when booking any tour. We will match every £1 you donate, with proceeds going to leading Scottish environmental charity, the Trees for Life.
Offset Your Carbon Footprint
HAGGiS Adventures has partnered with leading offset provider South Pole to offset our business, allowing us to offset what we cannot reduce. You too can purchase carbon offsets to cancel out the emissions produced by your travels. South Pole has 700+ high quality, and verifiable offset projects to choose from around the world.
Supporting Local Festivals
HAGGiS Adventures are committed to sustainable tourism and preserving the unique spirit of Scotland. We have been visiting Shetland for over ten years with the Up Helly Aa tour. As a donor of the Festival, we are able to give back to the local community which will, in turn, ensure more travelers can enjoy this fiery spectacle.
