A Legacy of Sustainability

Established over 10 years ago, Awake Travel set out with a clear mission: to promote sustainable tourism practices while providing travellers with authentic experiences that connect them with Colombia’s rich natural and cultural heritage. From the beginning, sustainability has been at the core of everything the company does. By prioritising eco-friendly practices, minimising environmental impact and supporting local communities, Awake Travel has set a new standard for responsible travel in Colombia.

Giving Back to Local Communities

One of the hallmarks of Awake Travel is its commitment to giving back to the communities it visits. Through partnerships with local organisations and initiatives, the company works to empower local communities and support sustainable development projects.

Off-the-Beaten-Path Experiences

Awake Travel offers travellers a chance to explore Colombia’s hidden gems and lesser-known destinations, providing them with authentic and immersive experiences that go beyond the typical tourist attractions. From trekking through remote rainforests to staying with indigenous communities, Awake Travel’s trips are designed to offer travellers a truly “real” and life-changing experience—one that connects them with the natural world and leaves them with a newfound appreciation for Colombia’s biodiversity and cultural diversity.

The Logo: “We Exist to Protect Nature”

At the heart of Awake Travel’s ethos is its logo: “We Exist to Protect Nature.” This simple yet powerful statement encapsulates the company’s commitment to environmental conservation and sustainability. It serves as a reminder of Awake Travel’s overarching goal—to preserve and protect the natural world for future generations. Every trip, every interaction, and every decision made by Awake Travel is guided by this principle, ensuring that the company stays true to its mission.

Leading the Way with B Corp Certification

In recognition of its outstanding commitment to sustainability and ethical business practices, Awake Travel became the first company ever in Colombia to be awarded the prestigious B Corp certification. This certification is a testament to Awake Travel’s dedication to being not only the largest nature travel company in Colombia but also the one with the biggest heart. It demonstrates the company’s unwavering commitment to using business as a force for good and sets a high standard for the travel industry as a whole.
