Who Are Novoto?

Founded in 2019 as an activism-based travel company, Novoto is dedicated to creating positive change through travel. At Novoto, we love travel and believe that there are few things in life more rewarding than packing a bag and heading out into the great unknown.

Without adventure, travel becomes mundane. Lacking local knowledge, travel can feel overwhelming. When travel isn’t benefitting local communities, it’s often negatively impacting them. Aware of this, Novoto set out to craft guided tours of South Asia that satisfy the wanderlust of our guests, provide a truly authentic local experience, and, most importantly, bring about positive change. 

At Novoto, we aren’t just satisfied with sustainable travel, we’re invested in regenerative travel. Through immersive cultural exchanges we want to empower every single person involved in our tours.

We see it first hand: travel is changing. Increasingly conscientious travellers want to know that their journeys are socially-conscious and and as responsible as can be. At Novoto, we work strategically to ensure we make a tangible difference for our host communities.
