Cycling; low impact on the environment and good for the health! Furthermore we enjoy the thrill of mountain biking whilst keeping our impact to a minimum as most of our cycling is on existing paths rather than off road.
An interesting dimension to the tour is the gite accommodation we use. A gite is a village house converted to accommodation for visitors and the revenue earned is shared between all the villagers.
Staying in and travelling through small villages along our journey, we are able to buy pottery and village crafted goods to support those local communities. It is also an ideal way to meet the local people more readily. Being on bikes, we can be quite versatile and are able to visit places that are not as easily accessible by other means of transport and can explore the high passes of the Central High Atlas.
As well as the above, we support a variety of charities and projects worldwide which support vulnerable communities and habitats including Friends of Conservation, Hope Worldwide and Send A Cow. We are also actively engaged with UK travel industry bodies which promote best practice in responsible tourism, such as Tourism Concern, The Travel Foundation and AITO. Our commitment to responsible tourism is not limited to our overseas operation and we have measures to ensure our UK office operates according to our responsible tourism policy. Carbon offsets for all flights booked with us are included in the tour cost.
This small group operator is just celebrating its 30th year and its activity holidays are very popular. Arriving at a village by bike or on foot immediately fascinates the locals and offers you an opportunity to interact as well as being great exercise and allowing you to reach far flung areas. Activity holidays are a great way to escape, get some fresh air and take life at a slower pace, allowing time for thought and reflection. In completing an active holiday, there is an element of personal development and improvement which can really help travellers focus on doing things differently or better.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
