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.
PlanetIt is safe to drink the water from the tap in England, however, for customers keen to avoid buying single use plastic bottles we encourage customers the chance to purchase a discounted filter Water-To-Go bottle which combines three different technologies to remove over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants in water.
We operate a ‘leave no trace’ policy on tour; our tour leaders are trained to promote this message to customers. As the focus of this trip is primarily walking, we aim to leave a minimal impact on the areas as possible. This trip actively encourages customers to reduce the carbon footprint to a minimum. The holiday explores the pathways over hills and through valleys and forests in a part of Wales which became world-renowned for its slate quarries.
We encourage all our customers to keep a safe distance from animals and not to feed wildlife as they become reliant on tourists. This is especially prevalent given the amount of bird life and livestock.
We’re committed to running our business responsibly. In our office we reduce, reuse, and recycle whenever possible. It’s in a refurbished mill, and we’ve also installed a waterwheel to generate electricity from the river. It was the first of its kind in Britain, gives us our own sustainable source of power and any excess goes to the National Grid.
PeopleWe provide accommodation at the Royal Victoria Hotel which has been accredited Green Key Wales. Green Key awarded hotels are committed to creating positive environmental change and asks all hotels to reduce their environmental impact. The hotel assures us that they recycle as much waste as possible.
Breakfast and dinners are served at the hotel; however, lunches are taken in a variety of local eating establishments, such as local cafes, pubs or supplies are purchased from local shops, which helps to spread the financial benefits of tourism.
We offer millions of pounds in financial aid to walking groups within the UK to maintain walking by young and old for future generations, rebuild broken paths and bridges washed away. This falls under an organisation named the Charitable Trust.
We cap passengers at a maximum of 22 customers so as not to impact on the environment surrounding the Snowdonia National Park, especially as we explore primarily on foot. Local services and businesses will be supported as much as possible on this trip.
