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 and peopleThe aim is to travel by foot as much as possible on this tour so that any environmental impact is minimised and we get the opportunity to get right off the beaten track. Most transport, when used, is public. Our accommodation is largely small, family-run hotels and turf-roofed hostels and we use locally run restaurants and guides in order to gain a greater appreciation of life in the Faroes. During talks and guided walks there is a strong emphasis on bird watching and how important and fragile their environment is.
As well as the above, we support a variety of charities and projects worldwide which support vulnerable communities and habitats including Friends of Conservation, Hope Worldwide and Send A Cow. We are also actively engaged with UK travel industry bodies which promote best practice in responsible tourism, such as Tourism Concern, The Travel Foundation and AITO. Our commitment to responsible tourism is not limited to our overseas operation and we have measures to ensure our UK office operates according to our responsible tourism policy. Carbon offsets for all flights booked with us are included in the tour cost.
