This was truly a superb holiday, with so much to offer to everyone. We were able to explore nature at its very best, along food and wine, art and culture, and also to learn a little about the spanish people themselves. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

As an Anglo-Spanish company we are passionate about the areas of Spain our clients visit, and our ethos is firmly fixed in preserving the destiations on our holidays here, a large number of which are remote, natural landscapes. One of our founders, Diego, lives and guides in the mountains and was instrumental in setting up a charitable foundation aimed at protecting and conserving the bearded vulture as well as preserving the traditional rural, mountain lifestyles which support and nourish the ecosystem.
The properties we use on this holiday are carefully chosen, small hotels which reflect their natural environment and are committed to preserving this in its beautiful state. Some of them grow their own produce, and employ sustainable techniques to harness energy. For example, in the Pre-Pyrenees, our hotel generates much of its electricity by solar power, collects rainwater to irrigate its organic vegetable garden, and uses geothermal energy to heat the hotel in winter.

People

As a trip aimed at getting under the skin of the real Spain, this holiday incorporates meeting local people, learning about their way of life, and supporting the local economy through the choice of hotels, restaurants and guides. We work directly with local businesses and organisations to directly benefit local economies. We use small, locally owned hotels and restaurants.
We work with local guides so that our holidays are more interesting for clients and more beneficial locally.
The hotels you stay in are all locally owned, all but one (Bilbao) is run by the owners. This means that you get a much more authentic experience as well as providing maximum benefit to the local economy.
By leading you off the beaten track, our guides are not only sharing with you a greater appreciation and understanding of your surroundings, but are also making sure that economic benefits are spread as widely as possible. Throughout the holiday our clients are provided with recommended contacts for locally-owned suppliers of excursions, restaurants and shops.
