Holiday information

Small group family adventure:
This is a small group family adventure - typically you will join several other families and travel in a group of approx. 16 people. The trips are great value and a great way for you and your children to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of time to yourselves.

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

This family adventure tour visits some of the most impressive conservation areas through British Columbia and Alberta, namely Clearwater, Wells Gray, Banff and Jasper National Parks as well as some equally majestic provincial parks. Here we will see at first hand how responsible tourism can be a force for good as it provides a valuable contribution to wildlife and environmental conservation and education.

On most nights we camp – a lower impact option than staying in hotels – and make a point of adhering to the strict guidelines laid down by the environmental authorities here.

We recommend that travellers bring biodegradable soap to minimise their own impact too. We are also careful to avoid disrupting the wildlife we come into contact with, and for this reason limit our group size to just 12 persons. Our local guides are able to give us a unique insight into the area’s traditions, history and wildlife.

Our Tour Leaders are all trained by us in the importance of responsible tourism with guidance given on how they can make a difference. This then percolates down through those they deal with.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

People

Whenever possible, we use locally owned activity providers, such as our whalewatching supplier in Pacific Rim National Park. The tour supports many small local businesses along the way – from the purchase of camp provisions to opting for small-scale accommodation. We shop at local stores for picnic items, and our Tour Leaders will encourage us to eat in family-run restaurants and visit local shops whenever possible. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit. Our Tour Leader is Canadian, and will guide us through the National Parks that they know so well.

We travel in small groups of 12-13 people, allowing us to stay in smaller properties and eat in more local establishments, while larger coachloads of 40-50 would need to eat in more touristy places. This helps minimise the effects that large groups have when visiting remote areas and small villages.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
