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

Unique environment

This wildlife-focused experience takes place entirely within the Unescos Sobrarbe Geopark, which means having access to three of the most important protected areas in Spain regarding biodiversity and ecosystem; Ordesa National Park, Posets-Maladeta and Sierra de Guara Natural Parks.

This area only is one of the most geographically variable and abundantly bio-diverse natural reserves in Europe. With more than 180 endemic species of flowers, around 100 varieties of butterflies and moths including Pyrenean specialities, some striking Pyrenean endemic Mammals such as Isard – Pyrenean Chamois and Desman; this region harbours one of Europe’s most significant concentrations of raptors, Griffons, Egyptian vultures, and the emblematic Lammergeier or “Bearded Vulture”.

Small groups

Witnessing such an incredible display of nature requires us to be extra careful, even more, when approaching breeding and nesting areas. That is why a maximum of seven people group will always be led by a local tour leader accredited with the official guide certificate of the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park, only issued by the Autonomous Body of National Parks of Spain.

The accommodation

Our accommodation at Gerbe is another way we use to make a difference. The carefully made breakfasts, picnics and dinners are prepared using locally sourced products. In terms of energy efficiency, we are working on reducing the consumption of fossil fuels, insulating the house with recycled materials. The goals are to be self-sufficient in terms of energy through installing solar panels and LEDs, optimising water savings, and reducing the waste production.

People

Local suppliers

All the parts involved in making these holidays are people and businesses that only operate locally, which means that 100% of the returns stay where it has been produced, including accommodation, guidance, hospitality, and transportation.

Local Crafts and Culture

We want our visitors to feel part of the community they are guests of and enjoy and understand its culture and nature. The guided visits to the ecomuseum and village of Ainsa, the historic town of Alquezar, or the birding and botanical journey led by a local biologist, not to mention the visit to the artisan cheese factory, will give the travellers a unique perspective of the region they are visiting.

Campaigning for change

Besides, we want to support our community by participating in the vital role of organizations such as Unesco's Sobrarbe Geopark platform and the Spanish Ornithologists Society protecting our landscapes and the life that inhabits them through their education and conservation campaigns.
