Responsible tourism: Walking holiday in Mallorca, Spain

Environment

Join us on this one-week walking tour across the Tramuntana Mountains of Mallorca and leave with a greater understanding and appreciation of this spectacular corner of the Balearic Isles.

We make best use of the island's public buses to take us to the start of our walks, which helps to reduce our carbon footprint and further support the local economy.

One of the highlights of this tour is our two night stay in Lluc Monastery, where the fee that we pay to stay there goes towards the upkeep of this important site – a place of special spiritual significance since pagan times.

During our walks we make sure that we stick to marked paths and our tour leaders are keen to explain about the local flora and fauna of the area to our groups. As Mallorca is a small island, water is a very precious resource and all the hotels we use try to preserve water by not washing towels and sheets unnecessarily and much of the food is sourced locally or even grown by the hotel owners.

One of our walks also begins at Cuba reservoir which is one of Mallorca's key water resources, so a visit here emphasizes to our clients the importance of water as a resource to the island population. This tour is very much in keeping with the island’s tourism development strategy which aims to reduce mass tourism and its negative impacts and instead promote small group or independent travel to the island's places of beauty and to make visitors more aware of the need for the conservation of the island's fauna and flora and protection of its natural resources.

In addition to the above, 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. As well as this, 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 UK travel industry bodies Tourism Concern and AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators. We acknowledge that air travel has a negative impact on our environment, so we work together with Cool Earth to offset carbon and protect our important rainforests.

Community

Our walking groups are limited to a maximum of 16 people which means we use smaller, locally-owned accommodation and transport companies ensuring that more of your money goes to the Mallorcan's themselves rather than to international hotel and transport chains.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Walking in a beautiful area with a pleasant group of people, and everything planned so no need to worry about route or logistics.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Anybody reasonably fit should be able to cope with the distance and gradients. The cost of evening meals does add up. Try another operator if you want a similar holiday at 'all-in' prices.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The route is through well established tourist areas, using hotels, monastery and restaurants - no special advantages to local people beyond the obvious.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Good. James, our leader, looked after everybody and accommodated individual needs.

Thank you for submitting your feedback regarding the above tour via the responsible travel website.

We were delighted to read that you enjoyed your trip and your Tour Leader, James, looked after everyone’s needs and contributed to the success of your holiday. It is always good to know our efforts are appreciated and therefore we are pleased to pass on your kind comments to all those involved with your tour arrangements. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the company of your fellow travellers.

We note the point you make about group evening meals. We do find our customers prefer to arrange their evening meal each day as it gives them plenty of flexibility when planning their activities for each evening. Our tour leaders will always be willing to suggest suitable places which offer good menus at differing price ranges.

We hope that you have returned with many happy memories of your holiday and we hope to have the pleasure of your company on another trip in the not too distant future.

Yours sincerely

Paula Wells
Customer Relations Executive
