Each country has something unique to teach, even the most popular ones. But, it can be difficult to find the unexpected, when everyone is talking about it. We focus on investigating a country through local experiences – from local culture to local nature – and more.
From breathtaking landscapes to pushing your comfort zone and discovering your potential, the outdoors is where your eyes can open the widest. But, sometimes we just need to get our feet dirty to go off road to deeply investigate a cultures way of life.
With every trip, we balance traditional touristic sites with personally enriched activities to push your comfort zone or discover and learn about new things. Our unexpected foundation, sets you on a path to allow for life-changing moments to happen and return from vacation to approach everyday life in a fresh way.

the meaning of bonviage
Good journeys. Good rewards.
The literal translation for BonViage means good journey. The spelling is from an international interlingual language, derived from two languages. It is meant for communication between people from different nations that do not share a common first language. Our goal is to add the good rewards.
Your travel choices make a profound impact on the world. Which is why BonViage takes a responsible and sustainable approach to travel before, during and after your trip. Whether it's staying at a locally-owned hotel, visiting an elephant rescue or experiencing the wonder of the natural outdoors, our goal is to deepen and provide meaningful travel experiences that both excite you and benefit the social and environmental surroundings of where we are.
From our hiring of local guides that strive to preserve their natural and cultural environment to staying in local non-chain hotels or eating in family owned restaurants, your travel dollars stay in town.
Keep a Low Profile
We limit our group size to 8. This means no gas guzzling buses or tour megaphones. We travel in small vehicles or by public transportation so we can get off-the-beaten-path and try to blend in.
Be Good Guests
We do our best to minimize the impact left behind and encourage our travelers to do this as well, from bringing refillable water bottle to respecting wildlife and being considerate to others.
Donate for Change
As a small business our humble efforts are intended to make the world a better place. But, sometimes bigger pockets are needed for greater change. We proudly donate to Amnesty International to advocate for a world where human rights and environmental protections are enjoyed by all.
