A “Blue Sky Escape” is a transformative and invigorating experience. Like blue-sky thinking, it opens your mind and breathes life into fresh ideas. It takes you out of your comfort zone and enables you to get under the skin of wherever you’re headed. You return with new perspectives and a full heart. 

We invite you to be a part of the story, not only as you immerse yourself and seamlessly weave into the tapestry of your surroundings, but also as you take the journey within.

We really understand that one of the key concerns right now is the need for flexibility. That’s why we’re ensuring that you can cancel your plans with full credit being put towards a future journey, subject to restrictions and policies that our local partners may apply. 

The amount of full credit is equivalent to the amount already paid to us at the time of cancellation: 

  • Up to 31 March 2022: 50% of the total amount 
  • From 1 April 2022: 100% of the total amount 

Regardless, we would highly recommend all travellers to buy travel insurance in order to benefit from protection against any unforeseen circumstances. 

It is, above all, our duty of care to ensure that we have established policies and protocols to make sure that our travellers, and travel partners, remain safe, at all stages of the journey. 

  • Before you travel, we’ll make sure that all guides and staff members you meet complete health declarations, and create contingency planning for vetted medical facilities. 
  • All properties and ground partners are screened in line with our COVID-19 safety protocols. Here’s a selection of some of the best practices we look out for: 
    • Contactless check-in 
    • In-room dining options at hotels 
    • Layout of tables and chairs in common areas 
    • Regular deep cleaning of rooms and transport 
    • Strict application of social distancing measures 
    • Cashless payment options 
    • Hand sanitiser stations in accommodation 
  • Travellers are also required to complete health declarations before their journey begins. 
  • We’re providing face masks and hand sanitisers for each traveller. 
  • Deep cleaning and sanitisation of accommodation and transport is carried out and frequent temperature checks for staff are in place. During the journey, your travel consultant will provide 24/7 support for any issue (no matter how small) that might come up. 

All of this means that your journey experience will be as safe as practically possible for travellers. 

We are proud to be a conscious company in which sustainable travel is central to our philosophy and values; from taking care of our travellers, staff, guides, families and suppliers, to being respectful to the local people we meet, and preserving the pristine environments we travel through. Each journey we craft takes into account all of these components. 

All of our staff, guides and suppliers are remunerated fairly. We also offer financial and socio-economic support to the local communities and homestays we send our travellers to, providing them with a source of income from tourism while enabling them to enhance their guest facilities through contributions. 

We insist that all our guides and travellers act with the utmost responsibility and sensitivity on their journeys. We do not condone littering or other forms of pollution. With respect to trekking journeys, we consciously advocate for the construction of toilet facilities and the removal of all fluids a requisite distance away from any water source, as well as the burial of all toilet waste. We adhere to these codes of conduct at all times, and encourage every traveller and guide who is a part of each journey to adhere to them too. 

In the spirit of social responsibility, our staff, guides and suppliers on the ground periodically visit the local communities and homestays to exchange feedback on the social and environmental impact of our journeys. Not only does this protocol ensure sustainable travel, it also allows us to be discerning about the places we send our travellers to explore so as to avoid any negative social change. 

Finally, to mitigate any impact of the carbon footprint we leave behind, we work with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every traveller we send on a journey.
