With an environmental focus rivaling the new and improved Al Gore, Natural Habitat Adventures is a pioneer in sustainable travel. Starting this year, its land-based trips and office operations will be completely carbon neutral (an outfitter first). And in 2008 Habitat will offer the first carbon-neutral voyage to Antarctica. "Our hope is that we can motivate other companies to offset their emissions," says Habitat's Matt Kareus. "And when airlines and cruise lines follow suit, it will make a difference." Natural Habitat Adventures is the official travel provider for World Wildlife Fund, so a percentage of your trip cost goes to WWF. What, you ask, is in it for you? Stops at South Georgia and the Falkland Islands. With millions of king penguins and peaks covered in blue glaciers, the wild islands are altruism's just reward.
