Our programs are designed to create a greater understanding of our place in the natural world and the importance of conservation and sustainable approaches to development.
Our journeys are designed to bring travelers in close, to interact with nature and cultures rather than being a passive observer, while at the same time fully respecting the natural places and people we encounter. We believe our business is not separate from the communities and places we visit and we feel strongly about supporting the people and organizations making a difference. We design and operate programs for individuals, families, special interest groups and institutional clients.
Mondo Verde Expeditions was created as a result of a decade long conversation amongst friends who spent a good part of our lives living and working abroad. As foreigners trying to make sense of the world, our conversations would often focus on the complexity of the cultures in which we found ourselves living and working. We found that our work abroad changed the way we worked at home and how we viewed our place in the world. By creating Monde Verde Expeditions we continue to explore ways to expand this vision and hope our journey will cross paths with yours.
