Responsible tourism: Cycling The Camino De Santiago holiday

Environment

The Camino de Santiago was declared European Cultural Itinerary of the Council of Europe in 1987 and UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993. This ancient pilgrimage has become an example of sustainable tourism, where pilgrims can enjoy both wild nature and cultural tourism in a route which is committed to minimizing the environmental impact. Some associations and the Spanish government have implemented policies to develop green practices on ‘The Way’.

The Camino is an example of fraternity amongst pilgrims and of respect for nature and the traditional way of life in villages it crosses.

Some of the family-run hotels on our cycling route are committed to the environment: using biomass energy from sustainable forests and buying local products to cook their local dishes. We encourage all our hotels to reduce waste, reuse where possible and to recycle locally.

Our daily commitment to the environment means that we constantly look for ways to reduce the use of energy and we changed our electricity company to a sustainable provider. On a daily basis, we are committed to a responsible use of other resources such as water, recycling office material including paper, plastic, batteries, ink cartridges, disposing of bicycle components such as tyres and inner tubes… Some of the team also leaves the car at home whenever possible and cycle to work.

As an environmentally responsible business, we compensate the CO2 footprint for each holiday by contributing to tropical reforestation projects in collaboration with the 'CeroCO2' platform. This calculation includes taxis, transfer of luggage and hotel accommodation for every traveller.

This holiday produces a carbon footprint of 0,4143 tonnes of CO2. (The calculation includes taxis, luggage transfers and accommodation for every traveller).

Community

The Camino de Santiago offers a meeting place for travellers from all around the world and from all walks of life. The respect for the traditions of the inhabitants of the villages and towns that they walk through and its communities is of paramount importance to the pilgrims.

The Way passes through many rural farming communities. Agriculture and tourism form the base of these local economies. Our holidays use local providers which help sustain these fragile local economies.

The small hand-picked hotels that we use are the best on offer and have been chosen for their authenticity and for the benefit they bring to the local community: many are family-run and provide local employment which helps avoid rural depopulation.

All our providers, from the little hotels to the restaurants and bars, taxi services, cycle hire companies etc. have been carefully selected by us to offer a friendly, personal, quality service to all of our travellers.
