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.
PlanetTravelling through the remote villages of Korea provide us with the great opportunity to not only enjoy the scenery, but also the cuisine. Due to their isolated locations, all dishes are made with their own locally-grown seasonal ingredients.
Since the focus of this trip is cycling, this is the main mode of transport used and it doesn't use any carbon. A support van is provided to travel only the distance which you will cycle in order to minimise carbon emissions, but also local trains and walking are used through out.
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.
PeopleVisiting small, independent-owned restaurants are an integral part of our itinerary, and this means money goes into the local economy and community. In addition, this provides an authentic Korean meal experience. We endeavour to use locally owned restaurants as much as possible on this trip, Korea is well known for its great food.
Carefully designed to include well managed sites of cultural and natural significance such as Hahoe Mask Museum in Hahoe Village. During these visits we encourage buying something local to not only remember your visit but also help maintain Korean traditions through purchasing locally.
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.
