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.
PlanetBeside the historic and social aspects of this wonderful walking holiday, this route is 100% environmentally friendly. As most of the walk goes through the countryside, and as the route during high season is very popular, it is important to keep the route clean for other pilgrims.
We request our guests not to litter, as garbage is a serious environmental problem for the route. Please make your own contribution to responsible tourism by staying on the marked paths and using reusable water bottles.
A large part of our travels has a touch of (or is entirely) an active holiday, in the mountains or by the ocean. The wonderful and enthusiastic work, which is being done to protect and maintain wildlife and national parks is dependent on visitors and their financial support.
Quality tourism means for us quality tourists, who are interested not only to see secret, hidden places, but also have the knowledge to understand what it takes to maintain these wonderful sights northern Spain and Portugal can offer.
Where we offer activities such as whale, brown bear and bird- watching or fishing from a fishing boat, they are always guided by experts and have responsibility at their heart so that nature is respected.
We also support local food and gastronomy with ecological products, sustainable wine-tourism etc. and we hope we add our part of improving each field and at the same time, maintaining the small-scale business authentic and “something special”.
PeopleWe are located in the heart of Northern Spain, in the old historic town of León. Our prime focus is to show our guests the most authentic, most beautiful and loveliest parts of Northern Spain and on this trip - Portugal. We always share our guest’s experiences with the hotels and other collaboration partners we work with, to help develop local tourism into a sustainable and healthy destination.
Our guests typically look for a different experience and an alternative to large-resort-commercial-travels. The peacefulness, the small villages, the local food, “secret” beaches and amazing mountain hikes and last but not least 100% customized pilgrimages are keywords in our philosophy.
A wonderful side-effect is that we assist developing local tourist-based economies by using their local taxi-services, local guides, bars, restaurants etc. by showing our guests local specialities and hidden places, that you will never find in “normal” guidebooks. Some of the hotel accommodations are located in historical buildings and tourism helps to preserve them and their history.
Before starting your journey, you will receive a personal guidebook regarding the vacation, which takes in consideration the wishes of each traveller. E.g. if the traveller would like to visit small ecological wineries or discover the best examples of local architecture, our suggestions are all provided in the guidebook.
Its important for us to give our guests an experience that is not reachable in other parts of Europe, through showing them the real local life and hidden places, which our guest would never have found without our help.
