Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Burgundy walking holiday, Chablis Vineyards

UK Office:
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, and send them out in bio-degradable packaging.

Leaders & local suppliers:
Accolay is one of our hidden jewels in our Burgundian crown, and we’ve been working with M Guedon at Hostellerie de la Fontaine here for more than 20 years. Walkers eat here when staying at neighbouring Vermenton (we provide transfers) – the restaurant is a wonderfully atmospheric 17th century wine cellar! The menu varies according to what is in season locally – chef Alain Pohu has also been here for 20+ years and has turned this family-run restaurant into one of the most gastronomic eating places in Burgundy.

Staff:
Our staff suggest places to see and visit locally. 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!

Group size:
Having no minimum number means that groups sizes can be small and therefore the trips have less impact on the environment.

Activity:
Walking has minimal impact on the environment as you provide most of the energy yourself and, when you’re strolling from village to village, you can enjoy a relationship with locals in a way motorists passing through never can. On foot, you get off the beaten track, and you’ll find that people treat you as a visitor rather than a tourist. Also, by walking independently, and not having to worry about keeping up with a group, you set the pace so you can soak up the sights, sounds and scents of your surrounds and really get under the skin of the place you’re visiting.

We proactively encourage walking clients 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.
