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
As part of our Responsible Travel policy, we advise customers to take reusable water bottles with them on tour. Our local leaders actively do not distribute single-use plastic water bottles and encourage customers to refill their bottles from taps throughout the trip. The tap water in Sardinia is completely safe to drink, and bottles can be refilled at hotels and at various rest stops. Another way to reduce unnecessary waste is through advising customers to bring lunch boxes and cutlery for picnics.

Cycling holidays are a relatively sustainable way to travel as they have less negative impact on the local infrastructure, environment and people while encouraging positive interaction with local people. We cycle on routes that are removed from mass tourism, creating less pollution, noise and traffic. When using motorised transport we work with small, locally owned transport companies.

Sardinia is more than beautiful scenery; it is also full of ancient history. At the end of the last, and possibly best, ride into Pula guests have the option to visit the archaeological site of Nora that includes some very well preserved Roman mosaics. The fee paid for entry goes straight back into the archaeological programme to help the preservation of this site.

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.

The Impacts of this Trip

This trip stays in locally-owned accommodation throughout, helping to support the economy of rural Sardinia, one of the more economically deprived parts of Italy where tourism provides an important income stream.

On the small island of Sant’Antioco we visit a small local wine producer. The Carignano del Sulcis vine is perfectly suited to the region as it can live with little rain and being small in height can handle the strong winds. Guests can sample this local product and learn why many local families have a little vineyard to produce it.

We use local tour leaders, who know the country very well and who will help to give us a unique insight into its history, customs and culture and get us that bit closer to the local people. Guests will be encouraged to learn and practice a few words of Italian, which can help to encourage a warm welcome and open doors. They also ensure that our customers are aware of the cultural norms that should be observed, dress code, gestures, etc. Our tour leaders are trained by us in the importance of responsible tourism with guidance given on how they can make a difference.

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.
