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 one week walking holiday takes you to a world far away from the more touristed coastal strip and into the less visited Alicante Mountains.
Our leaders are all trained in responsible tourism matters and work to our detailed Responsible Tourism Policy. They brief groups carefully to ensure that we have a minimal impact on the countryside, as well as providing tips on how to avoid generating waste, such as using refillable water bottles.
In addition, to help leave a low carbon footprint the trip has been designed with several walks directly form and back to the hotel.
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.
PeopleWe travel along ancient pathways to discover a traditional and quieter side to Spain. Accompanied by a Spanish local leader our customer will get a insight into this area fascinating history, visiting castles dating back to the Moorish invasion and viewing late prehistoric rock art.
We stay in a small mountain village that is little vised by tourist, the hotel is family ran with typical simple Spanish décor and restaurant serving authentic food of the region, influenced by the Moorish, Islamic culture. In the evenings customers can try local dishes and wine in the small selection of restaurants and bars in Castell de Castells, helping to boost the local economy.
