About us

Founded on a passion for nature and creativity, we find treehouses, cabins and other incredible spaces that help people live a life more wild.

In 2010, we started out with seven places to stay and a big idea. We wanted travel to be greener, kinder and more aware of its impact on communities and the environment.

Just over a decade later, we’re the leading voice in unique outdoor holidays and an employee-owned, certified B Corp, with a charitable trust that donates to environmental causes. We inspect every place we work with, in person, to make sure it contributes to what we care about - people, planet and finding the most incredible experiences in nature.

Our Impact

We’re going Net Zero for carbon emissions by 2030, limiting the number of places we work with in locations subject to overtourism and launching a campaign to promote equal access to nature, all alongside our longstanding conservation commitments.

Our Charitable Trust

The trust uses profits from its share of company ownership to help fund initiatives like The Resilience Project, which gives young activists support in the fight against climate change. As the company grows, our potential to support more organisations and causes grows with it.

Employee Ownership

Canopy & Stars' ownership is split into 52% by employees, 24% by our charitable trust and 24% by our founders, the Sawday’s family. What this means is that we all get a say in what the company does. When there are big company issues, our Employee Council get input from every member of the team. 

Our B Corp certification

Our B Corp score of 122.3, which is amongst the highest of any travel company in the world, is a recognition of the principles we’ve always held to. It demonstrates our dedication to using our business as a force for good, constantly reviewing the sustainability of all our processes, and being a great place to work.
