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.
PlanetAt our company, we're constantly expanding our selection of public transport holidays throughout England for travellers who prefer to ditch the car. By exploring on foot, you can fully immerse yourself in the environment and appreciate the destination at a more relaxed pace.
In addition to the benefits of a more authentic and sustainable travel experience, traveling without a car also helps to significantly reduce transport emissions.
During this holiday, prepare to be awed by the sheer scale and breathtaking beauty of the incredible Hadrian's Wall, a world heritage site managed by The Hadrian's Wall Trust. This organisation is dedicated to preserving the landscapes surrounding the wall while promoting understanding and accessibility for all. Steeped in rich history, this stunning architectural wonder transports you back in time, especially when walking along the most intact portions of the wall.
At our company, we're meticulous when it comes to selecting local partners who share our values and dedication to sustainable travel and environmental responsibility. We prioritise working with locally-owned and managed businesses whenever possible, for example your accommodation in Northumberland is family-owned which sources its produce locally. Building enduring relationships founded on mutual trust and a joint commitment to outstanding customer satisfaction and environmental stewardship.
We are corporate members of the John Muir Trust, an organisation committed to protecting the wild land of the Scottish highlands and islands.
PeopleWe believe that genuine sustainability requires supporting and preserving local ways of life by promoting responsible tourism that generates concrete economic benefits for communities. That's why we prioritize partnering with local, family-owned businesses instead of large corporate entities, for example you'll stay in a family owned blend of pub, restaurant and hotel, striving to serve ales and wine that are locally produced. We're dedicated to cultivating enduring relationships with our business partners, rooted in shared values and a shared commitment to sustainable travel.
This trip strives to prioritise railway travel, with the exceptions aiming to be sustainable. Such as group coaches being used, as well as walking tours when the area allows for this, all of this is in the company of a local guide who is committed to ensuring their practices does not in any way negatively impact future travellers or locals.
Our Glasgow-based team is composed of individuals who share our unwavering dedication to environmental and sustainable responsibility. They bring a wealth of expertise and experience to our company, helping us to further develop and implement responsible travel practices. We prioritise creating a positive, supportive work environment for our team members, and work closely with them to cultivate sustainable business practices that align with our core values.
