Being green does not come cheap! This British company will take you on an unforgettable, flight-free tour of the world in trains and cargo ships for $37,000


If Supermodel Bella Hadid can do it by pledging to plant 600 new trees to reduce the carbon footprint of her jet-setting lifestyle, you can do it too. If you can’t produce 600 trees, you can certainly opt for a travel plan that eliminates air travel. ResponsibleTravel.com has mapped out an 80-day trip to see some of the world’s largest expanses of land and sea via trains and cargo ships via a more responsible, slower yes, but greener, more carbon-footprint-minimizing mode of transportation compared to air travel. Britain’s Responsible Travel Company’s Around the World Holiday Without Flying package will take you on an unforgettable 11-week adventure without a plane in sight.


The $37,000 all-inclusive package will help you explore some of the world’s most notable cities in the UK, Switzerland, Austria, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and China. This is your chance to replace tight seats, annoying co-passengers, and uncomfortable long-haul flights with nestling comfortably in private sleeper train cars, en-suite ship cabins, and a few four-star hotels.

We’ve replaced steamships and hot air balloons with comfortable long-distance trains. And, with a nod to Phileas, we’ve decided to cross the oceans not by plane but by modern-day cargo ships.”
