Carbon Offsets

We encourage you to add on carbon offsets to your trip.


Using Sustainable Travel International, we made two calculations to offset flights:


LONG HAUL

We calculated the amount to offset based on a roundtrip, economy flight between Seattle, USA - Lisbon, Portugal. The cost is $30: $28.80 to offset + $1.20 YE Service Fee. Even if you're not flying from Seattle, if your flight duration will be "Long" (6+ hours), this is a good approximation to use.


SHORT HAUL

We calculated the amount to offset based on a roundtrip, economy flight between Paris, France - Lisbon, Portugal. The cost is $8: $7.20 to offset + $0.80 YE Service Fee. Even if you're not flying from Paris, if your flight duration will be "Short" (<6 hours), this is a good approximation to use.

Vaccines

You must be vaccinated and boosted to the fullest extent possible for Covid-19.

Reviews

Thoughtful, detailed, cost-conscious, and a pleasure to work with - I would HIGHLY recommend Yugen Earthside's services. My partner and I worked with Yugen Earthside to plan an international trip to New Zealand in November 2022. Yugen Earthside helped us craft a highly-customized itinerary that provided us with unique tour opportunities, while allowing time and space for self-guided experiences. It was the perfect balance. Neither of us had been to New Zealand and greatly appreciated the thoughtful recommendations based on our preferences, desired pace, and budget. From start to finish, communication was smooth, detailed, and timely. Yugen Earthside also checked in multiple times during our travels which we greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend their services for group or self-guided travelers.

Five days of relaxation, connection, and delicious food. I organized a retreat for my community and worked with Yugen Earthside to book the 5 Day Not So Serious Yoga + Wine trip in Alentejo, Portugal. This trip exceeded all my expectations and then some! Starting with the accommodation/retreat center, was perfect for our sustainable entrepreneur retreat. The retreat center had private and shared rooms to fit everyone's sleeping arrangements. It had multiple indoor and outdoor common areas for coffee breaks, power hours, and happy hours. The meals were out of this world with many of them being multiple courses. The owners, Vera and Cam, accommodated any dietary needs as they cooked most of the meals. It was amazing to see them and the guest chefs use fruits, vegetables, nuts, and leaves from the land in our meals, giving us a true farm-to-fork experience. The outdoor activities were well spread out to allow us free time. There's something for everyone, from yoga sessions, nature trails, coastal hikes, and walking to town. The best experience that kept giving was the sustainable winery tour, truly going above and beyond! The additional experiences, like the massage and surfing, were easy to coordinate with Hilary. Even when we had some last-minute additions, Vera ensured each participant had time to do what they wanted. The massage and surfing were highly enjoyed by the participants. I would 100% recommend this trip for any active group or retreat organizer. Hilary from Yugen Earthside is the best and made this retreat extra special for us. I already had participants asking me if we are doing this retreat again next year!

This trip is fantastic! The food was delicious every single day, Vera and Cam were incredibly inviting, and the local places we got to see were enchanting. I highly recommend working with Hilary and Yugen Earthside. She is creating a genuine platform with experiences that truly take social and environmental sustainability into account. She cares about every detail and is open to every suggestion or change you want to make.

We had a great hike in Douro valley, all the accomodations were perfect, and people we met were so nice. In every place we stopped we had great hotel rooms and a pool to rest after a day hiking (mostly up). Especially Quinta do Portal was really excellent and had the best chef and food we have ever had in Portugal. Thank you!
