Eco-traveller app - Adventure Junky - announced its ’50 Peak Experiences of 2019’. Curated by Adventure Junky co-founders Nigel Malone and Fuchsia Sims, the list is their take on the coolest, greenest travel experiences on the planet. 

From stand up paddle boarding the Amazon, digging for dinosaurs in Alberta, silent whale watching under the northern lights, to the world’s southernmost trek in Tierra del Fuego, Adventure Junky’s ’50 Peak experiences of 2019’ will make even the most seasoned traveller rethink their next adventure.

VOPO Philippines is thrilled to be recognised for the Earth Voyage, a 10 day sailing adventure designed to connect adventurers with a unique, authentic and positive impact journey across remote islands of The Philippines. The adventure supports business solutions to Earths ecological challenges, through the Wild Enterprise incubator program, and directly funds the preservation of wilderness through local partners Danjugan Sanctuary, Philippines Reef & Rainforest Foundation and SWEEP (Sea Waste Environmental Education Program).

The ’50 Peak’ list is also acknowledgement and praise for those featured Operators and Destinations leading the way in sustainable travel. Each one has put care for the environment and communities they operate in at the forefront of their thinking and actions - be it conserving habitat, eliminating single use plastic, to offering 100% carbon neutral travel.

“Our ’50 Peak’ represent the future of travel and tourism - a snapshot of an industry that works not only to enhance the traveller’s personal wellbeing, but equally that of the people and places they visit. We encourage all travellers to get behind the operators and destinations you see in our ‘Peak 50’ and put them first in your travel choices.”   Fuchsia Claire Sims, Co-Founder Adventure Junky

In branding the ‘Peak 50’, the Junkys took a leaf out of influential psychologist Abraham Maslow’s book. He originated the term ‘Peak Experience’ in 1964, defining it as ‘a rare, exciting, elevating, even magical or mystical experience’.
