Cycling holiday in England, Hadrianís Cycle Way
Description of Cycling holiday in England, Hadrianís Cycle Way
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 cycling 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 two wheels has minimal impact on your environment.
This trip follows the general line of the Wall, using the national cycle Sustrans Route 72, you will get the chance to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Monument plus the archaeological sites and museums.
We are aligned with ďLeave No TraceĒ, 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
PeopleIn the regions that we travel through, tourism is a valuable source of income for many local people, so we aim to ensure that your money benefits the community that hosts you. We try to maximise the positive benefits of tourism and give you the most authentic travel experience possible by opting for family-run lodgings over international chains.
For example, when available, we book the Glenfield House in Whitehaven who serve award-winning sausages and bacon at breakfast, produced from free-range pigs reared in the heart of the Lake District. And the family run Angus Hotel in Carlisle, where you will receive a warm welcome from Rachel and Martin.
During your tour we encourage you to purchase your lunch/snacks from local businesses whenever you get an opportunity. Tip: on Day 5 you might like to stop at the cafť at Lanercost.
In 2000 we developed the award winning Responsible Travel Guidebook, which presented our Travel Groupís 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.
