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
This cycling holiday follows the well-defined Camino Frances (French Way), a pilgrimage route since the 9th century leading to the Cathedral at Santiago de Compostela. We travel by bike point to point for ten days. Pedal power is, of course, one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel, meaning that your holiday is a low impact option, keeping our carbon footprint low. Local taxis are used to transfer the luggage between the overnight stops and if you wish to take a days rest from cycling.

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, 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

The Camino de Santiago is one of the most important and historical ways in Spain. We follow in the footsteps of Christian pilgrims who have walked this path for centuries, along the way discovering local traditions, meeting other pilgrims and learning about the historical significance of the route from both route notes and to the local people who live and work in the area. We pass by and stay in medieval towns and villages including O Cebreiro with its cobbled streets and thatched houses.

Staying in different locations brings money to these rural communities and spreads the economic benefits of our visit throughout this area of northern Spain from Leon to Santiago de Compostela. We encourage you to eat in local cafes and restaurants to enjoy regional tapas and Galician dishes, there are also good value pilgrims menu options available in every overnight location.

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.
