Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
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.

We operate a ‘leave no trace’ policy on all activity days to help maintain them for future generations. Our tour leader is trained to promote this message to our customers whilst on this trip. Lunches can be purchased from local shops and you are encouraged to bring a water bottle, Tupperware container and cutlery to avoid using a plastic bags and plastic knives and forks.

We offer the opportunity to purchase a water filter bottle, at a discounted price, that combines three different technologies to remove over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants in water. This allows our clients to fill up from local streams and wells while on walks, and prevents the need for single use plastic bottles

The focus of this trip is primarily walking, however there will be some free time to walk additional trails and we aim to leave minimal impact. We stick to the trails to avoid upsetting the delicate balance for plants and animals, as well as not feeding wildlife as they become reliant on tourists, plus maintaining a safe and respectful distance from wildlife.

The Impacts of this Trip

This tour operates during the quieter months of the year for visitors and in areas typically away from the main tourist resorts. It is important for us that we work with locals to ensure they benefit from tourism and stay at a family owned and operated hotel that employ local residents as well as work with local transport providers that hire staff locally.

All our walks are led by a local guide who shares our commitment to responsible travel where possible. It is important for us that we work with locals to ensure they benefit from tourism, and at the same time ensure our travellers benefit from local knowledge.

During our time in Cappadocia, we stay in local pensions and small hotels which are typically family owned and operated by local people. We eat out at lunch and in the evenings at local restaurants and sometimes in local family pensions for a traditional Turkish feast. This helps promote the local cuisine to our clients as well as financial benefit the area. Sometimes we may even be eating out of traditional Turkish clay pots!

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.
