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 respect and support local conservation / erosion projects by following guidelines issued by the Ecrins National Park and ensuring our clients are made aware of any specific guidelines that may affect them. All accommodation suppliers are vetted according to their professionalism and their approach to responsible tourism (using local produce, respect for the environment and promoting the culture of the region).

All our guides are fully trained in environmental sustainability as a part of their diplomas and they educate our clients about the mountain habitat during the activities. For example, the cliffs for the via ferratas are often important sites for birds and are sometimes closed during breeding times which we support and respect. Our trips are scheduled outside of these times of year.

We don’t print brochures and keep paper use to a minimum in the office preferring electronic distribution as our main means of communication with clients.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We use local guides rather than imported ones and pay them the going rate in France and for accommodation, we favour independent locally run accommodations rather than big chains to ensure your money goes straight back into the local community. We also choose local suppliers who match our environmental values and they sign an environmental charter in their contract with us to reduce single use plastic, use renewable resources and local produce for food.

During the tour your guide will tell you about the local culture and and stories of the evolution of the landscapes, wildlife and general life in the Alps to help you gain an insight into this fragile community which in turn encourages respect and appreciation for it.

We believe that the better you know and understand places and people the more you respect them. The accumulated knowledge over time helps to nurture conservation values.

We offer this trip from May to October to encourage a tourism season outside the busy winter and summer holidays to help develop the local economy towards a more sustainable all year round activity.


We are committed to promoting the culture of the region and ensuring that tourism has a positive impact. Through supporting local accommodations and local guides and creating tours out of peak season and giving clients detailed information about how to behave when in the mountains we try to ensure that people behave with respect for the environment and local people.
