This is our commitment to the land that we love exploring.
Carbon – Climate +
We offset carbon emissions from all trips.
A force for good
We sign world treaties to fight against climate change.
We work with more than 50 small and family-run operators.
No more plastic
We offer trips free of single-use plastics.
We plant trees
We plant 10 trees for every traveler.
In August of 2020, we became the first travel company in Argentina to compensate for all the CO2 emissions our travelers produce during their trips while traveling by land.
However, we decided that we needed to do more. So, we took this one step further in orderto remove more carbon dioxide than we produce.
To make this possible, through the Adventure Travel Trade Association, we partnered with South Pole, one of the most reputable organizations dedicated to Climate Change actions that make sure that those resources go directly to projects that are working to reduce the carbon emissions on our planet.
(I put “their,” because you are saying that South Pole makes sure that resources go to projects that are working to reduce their footprint…this means that they focus on other companies, not just Say Hueque. Correct?)
In 2021, we also partnered with ReforestArg, a local NGO that works to restore damaged forests in Patagonia.
At Say Hueque, reforestation is at the heart of what we do.
We are firmly convinced that this is the way to give back, uplift local communities, and restore biodiversity.
In 2021, we started a partnership with ReforestArg, a local NGO that works to restore damaged forests in Patagonia.
Since then, we have donated a tree for every person that has traveled with us and have participated in two massive tree planting operations..
In 2022, we decided to go even bigger:
We declare our shared commitment to unite all stakeholders in transforming tourism in order to deliver effective climate actions.
We support the global commitment to halve emissions by 2030 and reach Net Zero as soon as possible before 2050.
We will consistently align our actions with the latest scientific recommendations so as to ensure that our approach remains consistent with a rise of no more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels by 2100.
As a signatory, we commit to:
We are locals that work with locals. We believe that travel has the power to contribute to the sustainable development of the host communities we visit and can improve their livelihoods.
That’s why we:
The Ocean currently receives 13 million tons of plastic annually. This will triple in the next 20 years. In Argentina, by 2019, 83.2% of the pollutant waste on the coast was plastic-based.
Read more about plastic pollution in the oceans of the world in the United Nation Environment Programme.
Argentina produces 178.94 million tons of CO2 per year. Luckily, carbon represents only 1% of the energy used in the country. However, we do not have a great global ranking according to the 2021 Climate transparency Record, so this means we have a long way to go!
Argentina had 11,504 deforestation alerts in 2020; 78% were caused by fires. SAT is a nationally-designed satellite tool to keep track of Argentina’s woods’ conservation status.
What do 20k trees look like?

Why August 1st?
Every August 1st, we commemorate Pachamama Day – Mother Earth Day. This celebration is held to give thanks, ask for and bless all the abundance that mother earth so generously offers us.
Where will those trees be planted?
The native trees (Coihues and cypresses) will be planted in the Rio Tigre basin, a region located on the outskirts of Cholila, a small village at the foot of the Andes Mountain range in the province of Chubut. This place has suffered many fires that have devastated several hectares of native forest.
Which type of tree do we plant?
Coihues and cypresses which are native species to Patagonia.
