Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Highlights of Andalucia holiday in Spain

Environment

On this trip we visit the wonderful cities of Granada, Seville and Cordoba along with a couple of nights off the beaten track in a typical Andalucian village.
What makes this trip really stand out is the opportunity to experience the slower paced life of Andalucia in the Sierra de Aracena national park. Away from the bustle of city life, cars and tourists, we walk through the verdant landscape and whitewashed villages where it is possible to glean an insight in to true rural life, in to the agricultural work which still supports the majority of the population in this part of Spain.

We stay in small, locally owned hotels which offer warm welcomes and friendly faces. We use public transport between the different cities and villages utilising the comfortable and spacious trains and buses rather than a private coach which couldn't easily access the narrow lanes in which our accommodation is nestled.

We also recommend taking a bottle with you because the tap water is safe to drink and saves wasting plastic bottles unnecessarily.
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

On this trip we support as many local businesses as we can from locally owned hotels to village restaurants. Breakfasts are provided in the hotels and villages homes, but the lunches and dinners are taken at leisure in an abundance of local restaurants. Try some of the traditional tapas, dishes and drinks throughout your stay, they are truly delicious.

There are only two family restaurants in Castano del Robledo where we are based in the Sierra Aracena, and we eat in both during our stay. The families open their doors (often purely for our group) and provide wonderful home cooked meals. We learn about the village specialities with opportunity to buy some of their famous meats and cheeses.

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.
