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


Canyoning.

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


Waterproof trousers or swim shorts for canoeing in case the sun is not out, I had shorts on and I was very cold on the first day out due to water soaking in them from paddle dripping.

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


Bought food for lunch at local supermarket and used local restaurant, plus we enjoyed shopping at the market, so yes to benefiting local people. If it had of been a busier time of year the van for transporting everyone to activities helps the environment.

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


Brilliant, fun activities with time to relax in the pool in the evenings or river at lunch.

Responsible travel: Activity holidays in the Ardeche, France

We are aware of the impact that tourism can have on the social and physical environments that we work in. We strive to make this impact positive wherever possible and to do our part in minimising damage or waste.

In the Ardèche, many of our activities take place in or around the Ardèche National Park or in forest and farmland locations. We work hard to train and educate our staff so that they in turn can advise our clients on how to enjoy the region without having negative impact on the environment.

In addition to the physical concerns, we believe that it is vital that we work in partnership with the communities that we live in and to embrace the cultural and linguistic differences. All of our English speaking staff are given lessons and advice on French speaking and are obliged to converse and interact at every opportunity. Wherever practical, we work with local companies and suppliers to provide services for our clients. We believe that this not only improves our local relationships but it adds to our clients experience and improves understanding of the local environment for all involved.

We always try to:

- Remove all of our litter (and a little extra!) when we are in the outdoors.

- Encourage our guests to use green transport or offset emissions where possible for international travel.

- Reuse or recycle wherever possible.

- Respect wildlife and habitats by using established trails and not altering the natural environment in any way.

- Minimise consumption of artificially stored water and electricity by close monitoring and using devices such as timers to prevent waste.

- Manage our properties in order to limit energy consumed to heat or cool them.

- Make recommendations to our guests regarding how to care for the local environment. We try to raise awareness of local, sensitive environmental issues.

- Offer opportunities to visit local heritage sites, local historical buildings and national parks.

- Work with local businesses to provide activities, accommodation, shopping and meals.

- Visit and, where possible take part in local shows and events.

- Buy locally produced foods (we’d be crazy not to – its great!).

- Behave responsibly and with respect for the community by encouraging considerate interaction and conduct. We like to take a moment to consider how our presence may be perceived by those around us and to behave accordingly.

We are always interested in the feedback that we get from our clients – especially where the environment is concerned. They are encouraged to contact us any time.
