Luxury eco travel club launched

Posted by Richard Hammond at 05:09 on Friday 14 December 2007

A new travel club for the upmarket eco traveller has launched.

The Nature & Kind Travel Collection describes itself as a "direct booking solution and travel club for discerning travellers who enjoy living healthy, adventurous and fulfilling lifestyles".

Founder Andrew Harding, previously Sales and Marketing Director of the exclusive Alladale Wilderness Lodge and Wildlife Reserve in the Scottish Highlands, said "travellers increasingly demand more authentic, personal travel experiences that are environmentally and socially responsible, without compromising high levels of guest comfort, personal service, style and value".

Nature and Kind features over 350 holidays in over 75 countries, featured by over 100 'Trusted Partners' - including luxury travel brands Abercrombie & Kent, the Ultimate Travel Company, CC Africa and Virgin Unlimited as well as a range of specialist adventure travel and wellbeing retreat operators including Wild Frontiers, Journeys By Design, Hands Up Holidays, Wildfitness and Yogoloji.

The site offers "eco-friendly, luxury accommodations, tours and retreats around the world to suit a range of personal interests, needs and budgets, ranging from family holidays, romantic escapes and wellbeing retreats".

One of the features of Nature and Kind's site is a search facility for an 'Expert Guide', which recognises the "unsung heroes of the travel industry"... guides, tour leaders, instructors and therapists. Included in their personal profiles are their language skills, areas of expertise and links directly to the tours and retreats they are associated with in the Nature & Kind Travel Collection. An example is the Mongolian tour guide Goyotsetseg Radnaabazar who was commended in the 2007 Paul Morrison Guide Awards.
