The act of traveling responsibly extends beyond just ecological considerations. Our AlpineTrav Treks & Expeditions company also considers the impact of tourism on the communities and economies we visit. So we take steps to maximize the positive impact of tourism as much as possible. After all, it is clear that tourism can provide mutual benefits. In terms of fulfillment, education, respect, and innovation by travelers and local communities.


Voluntourism is the broad name given to the combination of travel with volunteering in countries or communities affected by poverty, disaster, or threats to their survival. Combining vacations with service can lead to an enhanced travel experience, achieving greater levels of integration with local communities as well as learning about the lifestyles of those visited. The benefits to the communities visited are immediately apparent if the projects are organized and managed effectively. The destinations and activities undertaken by volunteer-tourists are very diverse.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to provide a unique travel and trekking experience to every adventure seeker in a sustainable, honest, and transparent manner by training our staff well, designing unique itineraries at affordable prices, and providing personalized service with utmost attention to quality and reliability.

On the other hand, the destinations we operate in have a mission to uphold the principles of sustainability and responsible tourism, experiences at a high level of satisfaction for travelers and hikers that constantly inspire us to achieve better efficiency in our services.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to become a trusted service provider agency by establishing ourselves as a leading travel and trekking company in tourism in terms of quality service, creativity, innovation, competitiveness, social responsibility, promoting an environment of good relations, and achieving excellent customer satisfaction.
