Bali's Ecotourism Network

Balifornian Tours works with several organizations to give back to the island, remain sustainable, lower our impact and build environmental and cultural awareness and respect.  Please contact us to learn more and see how we can incorporate this into your own tour.  Most of our tours contain elements of ecotourism and charity.  We encourage you to bring donations of clothing, children's toys, tools, etc to donate to impoverished villages in Bali and throughout Indonesia.  We want your tour to be as rewarding and memorable as possible.

Bali Village Ecotourism Network- from ecotourism

Mass tourism, and bombing has struck Bali. This tropical island paradise has changed rapidly. It is not only slowly destroying the environment, but also weathering a down turn in the economy.

Since 2002 Village Ecotourism Network (VEN) was launched to respond the situations that happen unexpectedly.  We take part to empower the villages and contribute to below objectives. It is such an honor to work together and in collaboration with Wisnu Foundation, the oldest NGO in Bali that is concerned about Nature and Environment.  Ecotourism is about connecting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel.  This means that those who implement and participate in responsible tourism activities should follow the following ecotourism principles:

• Minimize impact. 
• Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect. 
• Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts. 
• Provide direct financial benefits for conservation. 
• Provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people. 
• Raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental, and social climate.
Sustainable travel is: 

"Tourism that meets the needs of present tourists and host regions while protecting and  enhancing the environment for the future."  So, please help us by taking part in this program. No matter what you contribute, it means a lot to BALI before it is too late.  If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us by using the form below. We will come back to you with prompt reply.
