Do Your Part

Be Informed


We send detailed information to all our clients in advance of departure, outlining best practice in your chosen destination. We will educate you on local customs and encourage everyone to be respectful and aware of local beliefs and to remain mindful of potential differences and pitfalls. We will encourage you to be mindful of where you invest your money while traveling – we want you to help us put money directly back into the local economies and minimise the potentially harmful effects of a robust tourism industry on the local culture. We will also offer advice on tipping. We ensure the money is divided fairly between the local guides, cooks, porters and drivers. We offer specific tipping advice for each of our destinations in keeping with the local guidelines on best practice.

Get Planting


We plant three native trees in Ireland on behalf of each of our clients. If you would like us to plant more trees on your behalf, please let us know; it only costs €1 to sponsor each additional tree! Better still, if you would like to join us on our next tree planting day please contact us.

Leave no Trace


We enforce a strict Leave no Trace policy on all expeditions. We educate all our clients on how to minimise your negative impact on the environments in which you travel and offer Leave no Trace training on every expedition.

Cut Single-Use Plastic


We provide all water on the expedition trails and we encourage all our clients to bring your own water-bladders and Nalgenes to be filled in an effort to eliminate or minimise the need for the purchase of single use plastic water bottles.

Donate Equipment


If you have any hiking gear or equipment at home that you no longer use please get in touch and donate to our equipment lending programme to help the porters of Kilimanjaro. Or you can donate directly to KPAP and help support the vital work they do kiliporters.org.

Everest Base Camp and Island Peak was my second trip with Earth’s Edge. The team at Earth’s Edge treat everyone with respect and make you feel part of the family rather than simply a paying customer. I have met some wonderful people and shared some…

John Creaven, Co. Dublin

Hands down the most special and amazing trip I have done to date, and coming from a well-seasoned traveler this is saying a lot! Climbing Kilimanjaro had been on my bucket list for quite some time and when I turned 40 this year, I decided…
