Empowering travels is an online travel agency that offers sustainable*, community *, conscious * and energy* trips worldwide.
With its products, it aims to get the best out of and empower each part of a trip involved: the workers, the travellers, the hosts, nature, the place, the local people, the women…, in other words, it strikes a balance between the surroundings, the environment and the person who travels.
In this sense, Empowering Travels offers a new line of trips, those that “empower”, these being the sum of different types of tourism that seek the progressive change of the exterior and interior world.
Empowering Travels was born motivated by a passion for a multifaceted world that holds great secrets, to take advantage of the capacity of tourism to contribute to progressive social change, that is, the one that makes things progress, and with the will to give response to a growing search for spiritual connection with oneself and with the surround.
