Balancing social responsibility

At aliveXperiences, we are passionate about fostering positive change. We continuously seek innovative ways to empower local communities and minimize our environmental footprint, ensuring travel becomes a force for good.

our Carbon Offset projects

Since 2021 we have been supporting One Tree Planted Project to plant a tree for every day of vacation sold.

Here the projects we have sustained over the years:
2024 Texas
2023 Europe
2022 California
2021 Spain


Trees planted by our travelers: 3,442 as of March 2024

The Project:
Texas is known for its four beautiful national forests, including the Angelina National Forest, Davy Crockett National Forest, Sabine National Forest, and Sam Houston National Forest. Each of these forests offer beautiful tranquility that we want to help preserve for generations to come. By planting trees in Texas, we will be helping to restore a number of different tree species, including the longleaf pine to help promote biodiversity and superior soil health across some of Texas’ most notable and beautiful forests.

Reforestation in Texas will allow us to help restore some vital tree species, most notably the longleaf pine. Healthy longleaf ecosystems are crucial as they help to provide natural filtration of precipitation, allowing clean water to reach local communities. Longleafs are also known to be more resilient, making them more resistant to wildfire, drought, pests, and wind events than other species that are not adapted to local conditions.

Tree Species:
We will determine the most appropriate species to plant, based on the time of year. Some of the species we will plant include the longleaf pine and shortleaf pine.


Trees planted by our travelers in 2023: 4,231

The Project:
Europe’s forests have historically faced extreme deforestation pressure as a result of human expansion, conflict, the industrial revolution, and other factors. After WWII, over 120,000 miles of hedgerow were removed during intensive farming efforts. In more recent times, over the last decade, 1,000+ irreplaceable ancient woods have been threatened by development. Pests, diseases, and climate change only increase the pressure on already fragmented woodlands, and in the UK alone, millions of ash trees are threatened by the Chalara ash dieback.

Our reforestation projects in Europe are impacted by a range of factors that increase complexity, including habitat fragmentation, grazing, settlement, and higher regional costs. However, public will and governmental commitments make now a very impactful time for reforestation efforts in Europe.

As Europe experiences increasing climate change impacts such as record-high temperatures, forest fires in Greece, flooding in Italy, and more, reforestation is more important than ever. Our Europe projects are planting trees to increase climate change resilience, improve public access to green spaces, improve habitat connectivity, and stabilize and enrich soils.

Through thoughtful reforestation initiatives, we can ensure a greener future for European forests and communities. Restoring native woodlands is an important step towards climate regulation, protecting access to clean water, encouraging native wildlife, and more. Our carefully planned projects are designed to have cascading benefits, including natural, social, financial, and inspirational returns.

Tree Species:
Every tree we plant will have an impact on the surrounding ecosystem, and must be selected with great care. We work with our planting partners to ensure the species we select will provide the intended benefits for wildlife and communities.

Our Europe projects focus on planting trees to increase habitat connectivity, improve climate change resilience, and restore habitat for native biodiversity. A typical planting might include species such as alder, oak, ash, fir, pine, spruce, and larch. Species are carefully selected with a range of factors in mind, including the specific region, climate, and purpose of the planting.


Trees planted by our travelers in 2022: 2,472

The Project:
If you happen to venture these pristine landscapes, you’ll find yourself immersed in majestic forestry where giant coastal redwoods take the stage, often surrounded by rare plants. Unfortunately, five years of drought and large-scale bark beetle infestation have seriously damaged these once-thriving forests. Not to mention, 2017’s record-breaking wildfire season burned more than 1.3 million acres – an area the size of Delaware. 2020’s fire season have consumed close to 3 million acres, resulting in hundreds of millions of trees that must be restored. Together, let’s restore California’s forests so that we can continue to enjoy their natural beauty for many years to come!

Trees play a vital role in maintaining the liveliness of California communities. With your contribution, we will help restore areas affected by wildfires throughout the whole of California, thus producing ecological benefits such as habitat restoration and erosion control. With these funds, hard-working foresters will dedicate time to promote improved vegetation planning and resource management, helping to reduce the risk of catastrophic fires and floods in the region.

Tree Species:

In order to maximize the impact of your donation, we will determine the most appropriate species to plant, based on the time of year. Some of the species we will plant include the Sugar Pine, California Redwood (known as the State Tree), Maple, Elderberry, Willow, Birch, Dogwood, Cedar, Giant Sequoia, and Walnut.


Trees planted by our travelers in 2021: 364

The Project:
This reforestation will work to rebuild the forests of Undabaso. This area is located in the municipality of Muxika, in the province of Bizkaia, in the Basque Country. The area is included in the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve.


Fundación Lurgaia, by means of the Quercus program, aims to recover part of the lost forests and, hence, their value for biodiversity as well as the goods and services they provide to the society. In addition to this, this project aims to improve the habitat of endangered species, improve the water cycle, reduce land erosion and loss of soil, improve the ecological status of the water bodies, remove invasive species and long term upkeep and fixation of CO2.

Tree Species:
More than 35 species will be planted, including, Quercus robur, Betula alba, Corylus avellana, Fraxinus excelsior, Acer campestre, Ilex aquifolium, Salix sp., Taxus baccata, Castanea sativa, Alnus glutinosa, Cornus sanguinea, Fagus sylvaticus, etc.
