Responsible tourism

Canadian Rockies small group holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

This trip includes visits to both Jasper and Banff national parks, where our travellers will have the opportunity to witness the natural beauty that makes them highlights of any holiday in western Canada. We make a big effort to educate our travellers on how to be respectful and safe around the flora and fauna here. We also conduct our business using strict leave-no-trace policies, which helps to preserve the precious habitats of Canadian animals, such as elk, black bears, grizzly bears, eagles, Rocky Mountain goats etc. Tour leaders will always educate travellers that wild animals should be viewed Ė without contact or interaction Ė doing what they do best: living in the wild.

Our tour leaders encourage their passengers to reuse or purchase reusable shopping bags and water bottles. As well the groups travel with large recycling bins too, so that they can store recyclables items no matter where they are.

Community

Our philosophy is all about acting local and that means respecting the local traditions in the destinations we visit. We also take real care to form genuine and mutually beneficial relationships with local people. An excellent example is our excursion to Sun Peaks on the sixth day, when we head out by canoe to an outpost where a four-course feast of salad, bannock, soup, salmon, ribs and cookies will be prepared. This provides a taste of how the old fur traders used to travel and what they ate along the way. Itís great for our travellers to be able to engage with the locals and learn about their way of life. We find that itís often these experiences which make our trips unique.

We travel in small groups of 13 people to minimise the negative effects that large groups can have when visiting remote areas and small villages. We also avoid the most crowded areas of the national parks we travel to, in order to lessen the impact on the local environment. Itís much easier to 'blend in' with a small group and it allows us to stay in smaller properties and eat in more local establishments, which supports the local economy.
