Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Burgundy cycling holiday, France

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:
Over the past 20 years, Burgundy has invested in the transformation of hundreds of kilometres of canals and river paths to attract tourism, so we are delighted to be supporting the local efforts by ensuring that our suggested cycling routes use these paths wherever possible. Not only do they afford quiet, leisurely cycling, but they also give you an opportunity to see flora and fauna in abundance – grey heron, egrets, kingfishers, ospreys and cormorants. 2013 will be our 25th year of offering holidays to the region – we reckon that adds up to around 60,000 bed nights!

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.
