Looking for the ultimate guilt-free vacation? Well look no further!
RockResorts and Vail Resorts are offering a voluntourism “Give & Getaway” package. This rewarding travel option offers discounted lodging rates to guests who ‘give back’ and volunteer at the company’s eight RockResorts.
More than 15 volunteer projects will be offered this year as part of the Give & Getaway packages, all of which are focused on natural resource conservation and preservation near the company’s resorts.
“Give & Getaway” projects include recreational trail restoration, working with sustainable local farmers, helping to improve forest health and projects supporting local stream and river ecosystems.
Full-day and half-day projects are available and guests do not pay for these volunteer experiences. In exchange for their efforts, guests receive a discounted lodging rate and value-added amenities at the resort of their choice!
The La Posada de Santa Fe project, for example, is set for July 26, 2010 and gives guests an opportunity to roll up their sleeves and help remove vegetation to improve the health of the main creek in Hyde Memorial State Park. To thank volunteers, La Posada is offering rates for this project that start at only $59 per night! A huge savings to reward volunteers and encourage them to experience Santa Fe in its high season.
