MISSION AND METHOD
Our mission is to build genuine connection between people, wildlife, and the planet.
Together with locals experts, we offer unmatched first-hand access to unique and engaging experiences in the most remote parts of our world. Each Inertia team member shares a simple yet powerful set of core values: inclusivity, authenticity, and open-mindedness. We design experiences based on these values, and also expect each participant to share them as well.
We care about communities, and about preserving the world’s cultures, wildlife and environment. Sustainable, responsible tourism is our collective vehicle of choice to foster genuine connection and care, while also providing an economic solution for the regions and communities we work with. To us, authentic tourism is foundational to building trust and fostering cooperation.
What can you expect when joining an Inertia trip? We do not design trips to feel like relaxing vacations and we do not fix nor sterilize locations. Expect to think and to be challenged, expect to be uncomfortable at times, expect to learn about others and yourself, and expect to laugh, a lot, and maybe even shed a tear. Our trips are real, and the experience may change you. For more detailed information, please read our FAQ page.
EXPLORE WITH US
Our trips are intense group bonding experiences. Each itinerary is designed to be deeply engaging, as we explore a variety of topics and interests throughout the program. They also are designed to enable genuine exploration and self discovery, as we delve into experiences, push comfort zones, examine complex topics, and bring people together from a variety of backgrounds.
We work in geographically and culturally remote places, politically isolated states and territories, and ecologically unique regions. This can mean a neighbourhood or an entire country, depending on the program, topic and level of depth we cover.
All of our trips are lead and organized by a combination of regional and or topical experts, local team leaders and staff, and a professional logistics team based in Canada. We organize both open group journeys as well as private, custom trips for groups and individuals. Reach out to inquire about creating your own journey with us.
TRIP TYPES AND SERVICE LEVELS
Inertia journeys focus on one or multiple aspects of a location. Look out for these icons to see which topics each trip covers and what to better expect from each journey.
We organize high, mid and low budget trips. The difference between service levels largely comes down to accommodation, transportation, food and time. We work hard to make our journeys inclusive; that’s why we have various budget options on different trips. Ultimately, travel is an investment in oneself and we are here honour that investment by creating experiences that have lasting value to participants.
Top-rated (or best available) accommodations, comfy transportation, larger staff to client ratio, and top quality dining. We rough it when we have to, but when we don’t have to, we live it up.
A balance of time and money, expect clean, comfortable accommodations wherever possible, decent and diverse eating options, and more comfortable and time-aware transportation.
Clean and basic accommodations, a mix of public and private transportation, and basic yet hardy, healthy and filling meal options. This is a no frills option, but the experience sticks to our values.
We founded Inertia with a great desire to connect the world and show people there are other ways of living beyond the status quo. Meet our administrative and operational team from Vancouver.
We work with local guides, fixers and professionals who are not only well-connected and extremely knowledgeable, but also truly care deeply about their communities. They share our mission and together we are striving to increase understanding and compassion through the creation of experiences.
