Modern Adventure's CEO and founder, Luis Vargas, shares how travel can make a lasting difference in the world.
As a Certified B Corp and Certified Climate Neutral business, Modern Adventure believes in travel that serves as a force for good in our lives, and in the lives of the people and places we visit.
Travel has truly transformed me. And in 20+ years in the industry, having the privilege of working across all seven continents and visiting more than 100 countries, I’ve seen first-hand what travel can do to help and protect the places we visit, but also how it can hurt or even destroy them. And the stakes are only getting higher.
The goal is that the places we visit—and live—are protected and flourishing for future generations, too. That’s why we’ve launched Modern Adventure. To show how travel can be a force for good. And we strive to make this more than feel-good messaging, and that it’s aligned and supported by every part of our business.
Rarely are we more alive than we’re out in the world exploring and seeing new places, and engaging with new people. It is one of the essential elements of the human experience that connects us with the truth that we are all so much more similar than different. The context and empathy that we build carry us forward, better connected, and understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
A Modern Adventure is one where we connect with the zeitgeist of place and its people through the lens of the craft of a Tastemaker. Someone at the top of their craft that brings expertise, joy, and curiosity to the adventure. It allows us to go deeper, look behind doorways, and have an experience that can truly not be duplicated. Whether through our small group adventures or through our Private Departures, we can create the trip of a lifetime and make a direct deposit into your bank of meaningful (and, awesome) life experiences.
Join us, be a part of the vibrant community that is Modern Adventure. The world is waiting.
