how to make a clean break

rough guide clean breakHave you always wanted to make a clean break, but didn’t know how? Kayaking around the Scottish isles, snow-shoeing in the Pyrenees, wild swimming in Finland, learning to dance in Rio, walking across the Serengeti… these are just some of the hundreds of Clean Breaks featured in Rough Guide’s exciting new Clean Breaks: 500 New Ways to See the World, by Richard Hammond and Jeremy Smith.

So what makes a Clean Break? Essentially it’s about minimising your environmental impact – on your journey and at your destination – by choosing carefully how you travel and the nature of the places you decide to stay. Clean Breaks are unusual, alternative and incredible experiences that also make a difference to the lives of local people and the planet, so it’s no wonder that Intrepid’s very own Thailand hilltribe trek was one of the few trips operated by travel companies to receive a special recommendation from the authors.

You can visit Rough Guide’s website to find out how easy it is to make a Clean Breaks!

I did that trek with Intrepid in 1997. Glad to hear it’s still run in a responsible way.
