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.
PlanetThis walking holiday includes the 3 must-do walks on the beautiful and remote Flinders Island an we really advocate for exploring without leaving a trace of our presence. We love to promote a slower style of travel, travelling in small groups (up to 16 people), staying in locally owned and run Flinders Island Farms, and eating only local produce, reduces carbon footprint and our general impact we're visiting. Any transport is shared by the group, reducing our impact as we travel around the island. When you travel with us you will be helping to reduce rubbish and pollution from our country, land, sea and waterways.
We educate our clients about the natural and cultural environment in an entertaining and enjoyable way, promote minimal impact walking, as well as encouraging everyone to carry out their rubbish and pick up any rubbish left by others along the route.
We realise that water is such a precious commodity. We encourage recycling where it is practical and make sure our clients know how precious it is and we encourage them not to not waste it. In our office we recycle our water as well as all waste products. All guests are given with a recyclable silicon container, insulated bag and eco friendly spork.
We have a self sufficient solar electricity system that produces more power than we need, putting green power back into the grid. We encourage be green, read on the screen so as to reduce paper. This overall helps to save the trees thus helping the environment. In the office everything is recycled from, plastics to ink cartridges.
