Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: North Spain small group holiday, culture & adventure

Environment

Accommodation & meals: Our small group size allows us to stay in family-run hotels that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited size. We also support small restaurants and cafes, such as sampling pintxos in Bilbao’s Old Quarter (a pintxo is the Basque answer to tapas) and dining on local dishes such as pulpo a la gallega (sliced steamed octopus sprinkled with paprika) in a 300 year old farmhouse.

Community

Community: Popularity of the Camino trail is increasing which is great for accommodation providers and restaurateurs right on the trail itself but other small businesses not far from the trail don’t always profit from this trade. We travel to locations such as the small hamlet of Pidre to ensure the benefit of tourism is more far-reaching.

We are proud to be a carbon neutral company. We offset all our global carbon emissions and offer a carbon offset option to passengers booking their flights through us. Through these schemes, significant financial contributions are being made on behalf of our business, suppliers, staff and travellers to internationally certified carbon abatement projects, equating to over AU$1 million since 2007. Since then, we have offset over 45,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. That's equal to approximately the amount of carbon that 2,796,047 trees would absorb over 10 years, or taking over 4,753 passenger cars off the road for an entire year!

Group size: This small group tour has a maximum of 12 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people.

Activity: This tour actively encourages guests to chat with local people, visit local cafes and bars, purchase local produce, gifts and crafts and discover what life is really like along and around the Camino trail.

UK office: It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment by having a range of recycling bins for waste, plastic recycling and paper.

Small steps to make a big change: “I’d always thought that in order to make a real and lasting change, a gesture had to be grand and sweeping, that it took a momentous event before real change came about”. In 2014, a Chaperone from this tour operator set a fundraising challenge – Camino de Santiago Challenge Trip to raise funds for girls improve their knowledge and skills, start learning at an early age and assist the 53 million girls in developing countries. By experiencing this trip, it will give you a sense of being and, while you’re exploring Spain, perhaps you can set a challenge for yourself to pay it forward.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Picnic at La Guardia and day free to explore Bilbao. Lots of nice pintxo.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Use packed bag, because lots of walking with luggages. Its manageable
anyway, just that packed bag is easier.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


No idea.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It just great and too short for me.
