Who We Are
True Nature is an educational travel company which provides full service in the planning, support, and guiding of a diverse catalog of trips around the world. We believe in the power of experiential travel and the incredible impact it has on one’s growth. We have hosted thousands of participants for over ten years and have been honored to share in the life-changing experiences of all those who travel with us.
At True Nature, we strive to make your journey seamless and exceed all expectations. We will be there to support you every step of the way; from helping you choose and register for the right trip, to preparing you with packing lists, itineraries, and more, to creating a once-in-a-lifetime in-country experience, to providing you with tools and resources to re-integrate when you return from your journey.
Over the years we have worked hard to make True Nature a truly unique travel company. We set ourselves apart from others in the industry by focusing on these key values:
Approach Everything Holistically.
We look at the whole picture. We work to create unique programs that balance cultural education, local experiences, thrilling adventures, nourishing relaxation, personal growth, and creating community. Whether you are getting your hands dirty while you build garden boxes with a local villager, flying through the rainforest on a zipline, or sitting around a campfire and sharing what you have learned, we strive to ensure that each and every one of our programs is planned with a holistic approach at the forefront.
Discover the Authentic Country.
When you come on a True Nature trip, you aren’t just traveling the world, you are experiencing it. We work hard to seek out off-the-beaten path experiences and have created powerful bonds with people around the world who have helped us to find some of the most unique offerings in each of the countries we work. From making tamales in a local Costa Rican kitchen to participating in a traditional Incan ceremony in the Sacred Valley of Peru, you are guaranteed to experience true immersion and powerful intercultural exchange when you travel with True Nature.
Don’t Just Keep It Green; Make It Greener.
True Nature has been committed to the practice of Geotourism over the past decade since our inception in a small farming village in Costa Rica. Geotourism is “best practice” tourism that sustains, or even enhances, the geographical character of a place. That means engaging in trail cleanups to help the national parks stay clean and the Earth stay healthy. But it also means supporting the culture, heritage, and general well-being of local residents and their surrounding environment. We do our best to incorporate a service component in all our trip and always work with hotels, lodges, and retreat centers that put the same value on sustainability as we do.
