Camino de Santiago & yoga holiday, Spain

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

Our Retreat to Spain has a heavy focus on regional & local cuisine and responsible, sustainable agriculture. During our 5-night stay at a retreat center in Asturias, 2 meals are day are largely sourced from the center's organic gardens on site. In addition, the vineyard we visit use environmentally sound agricultural practices including organic and biodynamic along with a strong focus on water conservation.

With our off-the-beaten path route, we avoid the stress that overcrowding can place on regions like Barcelona. This itinerary focuses on a compact region of Spain, and utilizes group transportation in order to decrease vehicular or air travel. As we explore several towns and cities in Spain, we encourage our clients to walk or cycle instead of using taxi's or other road transportation.

As always, we'll ensure local and sustainably produced foods in the restaurant selections for our included dinners, and when we buy snacks for the road, we'll prioritize fresh and local bites. As well, on all of our trips, we focus on reduction of plastic and make sure that water jugs are available for refilling personal reusable water bottles. In the event of waste, recycle and composting, we direct client to the appropriate bins and disposal method.

Community

Our Retreat to Spain itinerary prioritizes locally owned suppliers including our boutique hotels, local guides, transportation providers, and restaurants. Our accommodations are small, generally with around 10 rooms, and pride themselves in showcasing their local community including the neighborhood we stay in and the fresh, local food that they serve.

Our local tour guides are residents of the respective regions and know its achievements & challenges, history and culture and provide in-depth perspective and context as we learn about the unique place we're visiting.

We also collaborate with a non-profit that focuses on refugee resettlement through community engagement, such as cooking classes, language lessons and even yoga classes. We visit our community partner in Madrid and do a hands-on activity together to learn more about the incredible work that they do. 5% of trip sales are donated to our community partner.

We believe that a sound understanding of the local culture and community is essential to a transformative travel experience, and there is no better way to get that than from hearing through the stories of a local.
