It all starts at home so we have first worked to reduce our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies in place, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
Leaders & local suppliers
We have an excellent long-term relationship with the local operator who employ and train all leaders. We provide refresher training with a focus on Responsible Tourism, so our local leaders can educate our clients locally on helping to preserve the way of life in their area.
Throughout our visit our local operator ensures that our visit benefits the local communities we visit by choosing accommodation that is on a smaller scale and traditionally run to help support the local economy and communities. They also encourage these establishments to source their produce locally so the benefits of our visit are spread to the wider community. Furthermore, you will visit and stay in smaller communities rather than the larger towns enabling you to interact more closely with the local customs and traditions, learning more about the destination of your visit. Our local partner will encourage you to try the local produce of the area, supporting local traders and producers in the region.
The operator we work with in this area works hard to create tours that respect the environment which they visit, involving activities that appreciate the environment rather than damage it.
We operate small group tours that have a low impact on the communities we visit and we always ensure our operations do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. This allows us to stay in unique and characterful accommodation that would not have benefitted from tourism due to their limited size.
Few holidays have as little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as a walking trip. It is a quiet, low impact activity requiring comparatively little resources to support. Erosion on and adjacent to popular paths is a growing problem and our trip leaders encourage clients not to stray from paths to minimise this.
