Dingle Peninsula self guided walking holiday
Description of Dingle Peninsula self guided walking holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetWe believe that walking trips are the best way to experience a destination; because you have more time to appreciate the changing landscapes and get to know locals in the villages and towns that you pass through. Travelling on foot has minimal impact on your environment, but we encourage clients to stay on the marked trails to avoid erosion.
The Dingle Peninsula is one of the most spectacular regions on Ireland’s West Coast. Moreover it is steeped in history and traditional Irish culture. There is no other landscape in Western Europe with the same density and variety of archaeological monuments, making it important to plan your trip in a responsible manner.
We are aligned with “Leave No Trace”, an international organisation that has set the global standard for outdoor ethics. Through targeted education, research and outreach, its mission is to ensure the long-term health of our natural world while maintaining sustainable recreation in nature
Our Waste Management Policy encourages our travellers to take their own reusable water bottles, coffee cups and reusable stuff sacks to avoid single-use plastics. We follow this same philosophy in our office as well as on the trail: in our London office we have banned single use coffee cups and water bottles. We use recycled paper in our office and we are working towards reducing the amount of paper we use, as well as recycling all of our paper and plastic waste.
PeopleOur preferred accommodations we use on this trip are locally owned and not part of big international hotel chains; this way we ensure your tourist spend is staying within the area and benefiting local people.
You will find a warm Irish welcome in the family run B&Bs, and through their local knowledge you will discover more about Ireland, and get useful insider tips.
During the tour you will find craft shops, art galleries and pubs to enjoy. During the summer months pubs will have live music and we encourage you to visit these local establishments to experience culture and meet the locals. And by purchasing your souvenirs from the local craft shops it will help support the village economy.
In 2000 we developed the award winning Responsible Travel Guidebook, which presented our Travel Group’s comprehensive policies on sustainable travel. Over the years our Responsible Travel Guidebook has evolved to meet the ever-changing landscape of sustainable travel. In March 2018 The Thoughtful Traveller booklet was launched, which is an easy-to-read document that empowers travellers with suggestions about how they can be part of the solution and collectively make the world a better place when they travel. Everyone is encouraged to read the Thoughtful Traveller ebook before departure.
