Doing Things Differently has always been a trademark of Esprit. Most travel companies will tell you that they “aim for excellence”. At Esprit we decided to go one step further. We maintain the highest of standards in our product and our operations, but we also strive for excellence in our environmental and cultural ethics. We aim to be good citizens and ambassadors in the communities and wilderness areas where we operate. We are members of 1% For The Planet, Leave No Trace, The International Ecotourism Society. It is no wonder that National Geographic has rated us the #1 whitewater operator in the world!
