COVID-19 : Our Response To The Global Pandemic

COVID-19 : Our Response to the Global Pandemic

In the wake of the havoc wreaked across the world by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we're conscious of the need to rethink how we manage certain services, provide transparency to our guests, and highlight expeditions and tours that operate in low-population areas and are wildlife focused. At the same time, we're also committed to communities and wildlife reserve systems that depend on us and our ability to bring guests to generate local livelihoods.

When broken down into snow leopards per sq mile, it means that Hemis National Park has one of the highest population densities of snow leopards for any protected area in the world.

RECAP: Our 2020 Snow Leopard Tours in India

The start of 2020 was packed with fantastic snow leopard tours and some really incredible sightings. We pitched our expedition camps in the heart of snow leopard country in Hemis National Park, Ladakh. It took 165 horse loads to bring the camp from the road-head to our base and took 4 days with a crew of 7 to pitch the camp for our snow leopard tours. Little did we know that in a few short months COVID-19 would wreak havoc across the world! In 2021, we're moving our camps to a new location in Hemis National Park. We'll be alone…

Why Book With Voygr?

Actually Local. At Every Destination.

We don’t subcontract our tours to “local” companies. We are the local company. At Voygr, our expeditions aren’t planned by “specialists” that have visited a destination once on a familiarization trip, 4 years ago. Our experts live and work in the regions where we take our guests.

Empowering Remote Communities

Our singular mission when starting Voygr almost a decade ago was to put more money into remote communities. Controlling our own operations means that we can own our own infrastructure, hire our own local employees with exclusive contracts and ensure that your dollars actually end up where you’re traveling to instead of lining pockets in NYC or London.

Conservation is Key

Environmental conservation and protecting endangered species are core values. Voygr commits 20% of our annual profits to the High Asia Habitat Fund. In addition, we support several environmental causes. Expeditions with Voygr are not just carbon neutral – they are Carbon Negative.
