Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

Our guide has a love of the region and the mountains and encourages clients to make a difference in starting with their group activities: picnic lunches are bought from local producers and commerces; waste is kept to a minimum and gathered before moving on with the walks.

Waste is sorted before being disposed of in the necessary recycling containers. We don't use plastic water bottles that are a huge source of environmental pollution, but fill fresh water from pure sources.

The guide explains about the protected natural park that is the Calanque region, and gently accompanies the group in what gestures we can all make to preserve this precious natural environment. We learn how to travel through the national park with as little impact as possible, in respect of the local paths and pastures and of the wildlife : the guide of conduct in the park states to stay on paths to avoid causing erosion, and to leave animals in peace, observing from afar. We hope that travellers will return home with a new awareness of climate change and its effects on these beautiful natural regions.

People

We are always conscious of the impact tourism can have, both positive and negative, and to this effect are committed to organising small group tours that have a minimal environmental impact as well as benefiting the local communities that welcome us. We always work closely with our local partners and have built up a friendly relationship over the years, both in Marseille itself and in the villages we visit nearby, where we encourage clients to visit local cafés and commerces to participate in the economic life of the area. On this trip we stay in the family-run Hotel Mama Shelter in Marseille. It is a small business, locally staffed and sources the produce for its excellent homemade meals locally. Travellers are encouraged to respect the local traditions and experiences in the region, and to partake of local crafts when possible generating income for the area. Protected regions such as the areas around the Calanques depend on tourism, that must also be sustainable and respectful of the delicate environment in these areas.
