Responsible tourism: Montenegro walking holidays
We are well aware of the impact tourism has at home and abroad, and we make every effort to balance the environmental impact of travelling with the immense benefits sustainable tourism can bring to destinations and the people who live there. So we start in the office: we turn off all electrical equipment every night; we use energy-efficient bulbs; we measure print and paper consumption, and re-cycle wherever possible; we print our brochures on paper from sustainable sources.
All our holidays have their own sustainability rating so our customers can be sure that we are collectively supporting responsible tourism.
Group size: Having no minimum number means that groups sizes can be small and therefore the trips have less impact on the environment.
Walking has very little impact on the environment as you provide most of the energy yourself and, when you’re strolling from place to place, you can enjoy a relationship with locals in a way motorists passing through never can. We promote an understanding of the local culture and history in order to provide a better experience for visitors and hosts.
By including the entrance fees to several national parks we are contributing to their preservation.
We proactively encourage our customers to think about travelling responsibly too: packing light, saving water, buying locally and re-cycling all maps and route notes at the end of their trip.
Leaders & local suppliers: We use a family-run local agency who manage this trip for us, and they in turn use guides from the region.
The hotels and restaurants again are family run, employing local people and using locally sourced ingredients and produce.
We include visits to small local producers of produce such as wine and prosciutto, helping to support local businesses.
Many of our overseas staff have worked for us for many years now – in fact, the 20 returning staff this summer have, between them, clocked up an impressive 189 years!
