Responsible tourism

Canadian rockies & Vancouver Island 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

We aim to minimise our impact on the environment through our tour operation and this is key on a trip such as this where we have come to enjoy the natural wonders of Canada. We and our suppliers work to the strict environmental guidelines laid out in our Responsible Tourism policy, governing how we observe wildlife, deal with waste and operate walks to minimise our impacts in the fragile national parks we are visiting. All leaders are trained in responsible tourism matters too and brief our groups on how they can mimimise their own impacts, avoid disturbing wildlife and foster a respect for the culture of indigenous communities.

We spend a significant amount of time at various national parks on this tour, the included entrance fees help to preserve the status and upkeep of the park on a continued and sustainable basis. Interaction with National Park Rangers helps to preserve this role as an employment opportunity for local people and future generations. Our Tour Leaders educate travellers on how best to interact with the wildlife in the parks, for example advising people not to feed the animals to stop them becoming dependent on hand-outs from humans. They will also advise all groups to keep to the path to avoid upsetting the balance of nature.

As tap water is safe to drink in these areas, we urge you to take a water bottle to fill up, rather than generating plastic bottle waste.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

Community

Whenever possible, we use locally owned activity providers, such as our whalewatching supplier in Pacific Rim National Park. We shop at local stores for picnic items, and our Tour Leaders will encourage us to eat in family-run restaurants and visit local shops whenever possible. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit. Our Tour Leader is Canadian, and will guide us through the National Parks that they know so well.

We travel in small groups of 12-13 people, allowing us to stay in smaller properties and eat in more local establishments, while larger coachloads of 40-50 would need to eat in more touristy places. This helps minimise the effects that large groups have when visiting remote areas and small villages.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
