The aim of our company
At Happy Trails we are devoted to providing best value holidays for our customers and business partners throughout Indonesia. We mainly organise tours for small parties and our groups are rarely larger than eighteen, and each tour is designed by the company's founder with the goal of providing a fun and exciting holiday, while creating a better understanding between travelers and the wonderful peoples of Indonesia.
We recognize that the cultures, environments and economies we visit are fragile, requiring a sustained commitment from us to ensure that we have a lasting positive effect. Our tours can be a real help to local communities providing income, positive cultural exchanges and the financial incentive to protect the natural environment.
It is our aim to provide a great work environment for our staff, where everybody treats each other with respect, dignity and a strong team spirit. Happy Trails encourages its staff to improve themselves and motivates the people working with us to follow courses, which are fully paid by the company.
“It is the mission of Happy Trails! Indonesia to provide exceptional travel experiences to its clients whilst maximizing the positive impacts of tourism for the communities and natural environment in the destinations it operates in.”
“As a responsible travel company Happy Trails! Indonesia strives to create momentum to make tourism more sustainable whilst delivering quality travel experiences for our valued customers. We aim to maximize the positive contributions of tourism for local communities and the natural environment whilst understanding that there are potential negative environmental, socio-cultural and economic impacts connected with tourism if operations are not managed properly.
