Bermuda walking holiday
Description of Bermuda walking holiday
This departs on select Sundays from Oct to May, please enquire for availability.
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.
Walking has minimal impact on the environment as you provide most of the energy yourself and on this self-guided walking holiday explores the quintessential island paradise of Bermuda, a sub-tropical gem, seemingly adrift in the North Atlantic Ocean. Warmed by the temperate Gulf Stream, Bermuda is a stunning archipelago of 181 islands and islets, the eight largest of which form the fishhook-shaped mainland. The oldest British colony, this tiny treasure trove is packed with history and natural beauty. Famed for its stunning turquoise waters in a whole rainbow of blues, incredible pink sands and coral reefs home to hundreds of colourful fish, Bermuda is a beach-lover's heaven. Beyond the postcard-worthy bays, the islands offer a lush interior alive with a multitude of birds and flowers, making it perfect to explore on foot.
You will have access to our local partner and guide who has a wealth of knowledge about Bermuda’s flora, fauna and history and will be able to advise on the local environment and how to preserve it.
Also, by walking independently, and not having to worry about keepi
ng up with a group, you set the pace so you can soak up the sights, sounds and scents of your surrounds and really get under the skin of the place you’re visiting.
We proactively encourage our clients to think about travelling responsibly too: packing light, saving water, buying locally, re-cycling all maps and route notes at the end of their trip as well as to be mindful of not leaving any rubbish behind.
We are well aware of the impact tourism has at home and abroad, and we make every effort to balance the environmental impact of travelling with the immense benefits sustainable tourism can bring to destinations and the people who live there. So we start in the office: we turn off all electrical equipment every night; we use energy-efficient bulbs; we measure print and paper consumption, and re-cycle wherever possible; we print our brochures on paper from sustainable sources, and send them out in bio-degradable packaging.
PeopleLeaders & local suppliers:
When you’re walking from village to village, you can enjoy a relationship with locals in a way motorists passing through never can. On foot, you get off the beaten track, and you’ll find that people treat you as a visitor rather than a tourist.
You will be briefed by our local partner, Tim Rogers who really knows the local area and can help you pick the best local spots to refuel during your walks.
To help you get around, a 7-day travel pass is included, allowing unlimited access to the modern and efficient bus and ferry networks. By travelling by local transport you are supporting the local economy.
Like all our holidays, we encourage visitors to buy from independently-run shops & establishments where possible, supporting the local people and their families.
