We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
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.
PlanetWildlife : There will be a falconry and eagle/owl handling demonstration during this tour in which trained professionals will be showing us how to handle falcons, eagles and owls. These individuals respectfully and humanely handle the beautiful birds and will teach us how to interact with them in a responsible way. No birds are harmed or mistreated in this demo and not only will guests learn about them, but also about their cultural and historical connection with the area.
Waste : The castle estate where we'll be staying is committed to recycling at every opportunity and it also composts 100% of its food waste. This benefits the environment as well as the community.
Buildings : This tour has just 1 accommodation in which customers will be staying which eliminates much of the fuel needed for transportation compared to other tours. Most activities are on the castle grounds or just a short taxi/bicycle ride away.
PeopleFriends & neighbours : The great majority of the staff employed at the estate are locals thus stimulating the local economy and supporting the people living in the area. All activities are at local establishments which we hope will provide income to the everyday citizens of the area. This includes local musicians, chefs, performers, etc. More specifically, 2 of our cocktail hours will include performances by a 17-person bagpipe band and a harpist, all local musicians practicing their craft for visitors. All castle personnel are people from the area as well.
Local crafts and culture : We promote local, cultural attractions by providing a variety of activities on our tour including, but not limited to : The accommodation itself is a 100+ year old Edwardian castle, preserved and renovated to offer travelers a luxurious stay while learning its historical significance; Visits to various castles and ruins in the area to offer a history lesson to our customers; Musical performances in the local style; and many more!
