Our employees are entitled to a training grant (100% paid by the agency) to enable them, for example, to study French (at the French Alliance), computer etc..
Every year each employee receives a bonus equal to the volume of sales of the year.
We want to share with you the travel experience in Peru, in a responsible and fair way. We know very well that the impact of tourism can have positive consequences if it is practiced thoughtfully and negative consequences if it is not done in respect of the environment. All our tours follow strict rules in accordance with a responsible tourism.
RESPECT OF THE LOCALS POPULATIONS
During our travels, you will often be in contact with the population of the Andes. It more particularly includes the trekking team as porters, "arrieros"(persons responsible for the mules) and cooks or the local people of the village we will be passing through. Of course, Antipode commit itself to remunerate fairly its guides and local suppliers. Whenever it will be possible, we will exchange and share some of the Andean life, either with the guides or with the local people.
In this context, the Antipode works with several families from remotes villages, by making them participate in our activities. We suggest for example, preparing and sharing the traditional Andean dinner Pachamanka, to facilitate the interaction between local people and travellers, or to organize Andean weaving workshop that allows travellers to learn about traditional practices and buy products directly to farmers without intermediaries.
RESPECT OF THE WILDLIFE "GOAL: ZERO IMPACT"
Concerned by the ecological balance, Antipode applies rules that respect the environment. We quietly and carefully observe wildlife and we will not pick any flowers or plants encountered during our journey. We use gas rather than wood for cooking, during our expeditions, to preserve forests. We will ensure, with ours passengers, to remove all traces of our stay.
