The walks were extremely carefully planned to make the most of the scenery. Loved all of it but best personal highlights were the rainforest area day 1, Tejeda days 2&3 and the descent to the barranco floor day 5. 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

We advise all of our clients to stay to the marked paths. This is to maintain the environment as they pass so that it remains pristine for walkers using the pathways in the future. We also advise that they take all of their rubbish with them until the end of the day and recycle or dispose of it as is appropriate.

As much as is possible on this trek we have tried to ensure that the walking is done from hotel to hotel, meaning that there is no need to be transported from or to a hotel each day and reduces the need for transportation journeys and their effect on the environment. When the luggage needs to be transferred we use the hotels or local companies to ensure that the driving required is kept to a minimum.

Our suppliers on the island support us on our environmental goals. One of them arranges guided walking which emphasises the beauty of the islands environment, its flora and fauna as well as its culture and it turn helps to support it.

People

Most of the hotels we use on Gran Canaria are small and family run enabling these establishments to continue into the future. They are the establishments which are most in need of the tourism income and their ability to continue their success is important to how the island works. We also arrange for our clients to eat either at the hotels or at small local restaurants, again keeping the income in the small towns and villages where they stay overnight. We also use either the hotel, local companies or local taxi companies on the island for luggage and people transfers necessary for this trek. This also keeps the environmental impact to a minimum.

We provide all of our clients with a list of phrases in Spanish which they can use on their holiday. This can not just help in situations where they meet non-English speakers but can be a pleasant way to break the ice when arriving at a hotel or restaurant.
