Traveling with Uniworld means you’re traveling with purpose—supporting sustainable tourism as well as local communities and wildlife. Our MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences take that even further, offering our guests opportunities to directly impact the communities we explore in a positive way.

They are selected with great care using a proprietary assessment tool endorsed by industry experts, which ensures that our MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences directly advance United Nations Global Goals.


What are the United Nations Global Goals?

The Global Goals were established by the United Nations, and are a call to action for governments, businesses and society to address today’s most pressing issues. We have identified 11 of the 17 Global Goals where we will focus our efforts on affecting positive change. Learn what that means to us by reading How We Tread Right, our new sustainability strategy.



Wachau Saffron Manufactory

Wachau Saffron Manufactory

Educate your taste buds with flavorful delicacies as you taste red-wine-and-saffron chocolate and saffron-seasoned jams, vinegars and honey at Wachauer Safranmanufaktur. Bernard Kaar, who’s spent years researching the history of saffron and still more years cultivating the world’s only bio-dynamically certified saffron, is one of the Wachau’s most important producers. Meet Bernard and his wife, Alexandra, for a fascinating introduction to saffron—the plant, the spice and the cultural traditions.

Wine Vinegar Estate, Doktorenhof

Wine Vinegar Estate, Doktorenhof

Visit the Weinessiggut Doktorenhof estate for a special vinegar tasting. Founded by Georg Wiedemann some 30 years ago, Doktorenhof produces vinegars from premium wines following old traditions that have been passed on from generation to generation. Almost 100 percent of the work is done by hand, from the natural cultivation of ripe, dense base wines to the careful expansion of the vinegars in the vinegar room, to filling, corking, binding, waxing and careful packaging in hand-blown bottles and flacons.
