Holiday information

Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. Its easy to tick off the big sights independently but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

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


So difficult to chose! The hikes were the main highlights, because that was what attacted me the most of this trip, a personal challenge for me. The locations were amazing and the routes were always very well planned

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


To trust the organisers and the guide, and to be ready to take on any opportunity provided to do things, try experiences and meet people. Be mindful of your ability with hiking but don't let them stop you as there will be alternatives

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


The town was small but I liked that we went to a different place every day. It was not the highest season for tourism so we provided some business.

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


An amazing experience. It was all very well organised from the start, which helped to create something great overall. The guide was truly passionate and extremely competent, the group of people had previous experience with the operator and they had helpful feedback. Also, we easily and quickly created a sense of communicty that helped made the trip even more memorale.

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

On this tour to the small beautiful country of Andorra we stay in a locally owned hotel in the village of Soldeu in the north of the country. The hotel is environmentally and socially aware and employs locally, uses local produce for meals, offering both hot and cold buffet meals, and desists from washing towels daily.

This trek in the Andorran Pyrenees by its very nature has a very low carbon footprint and the trip uses limited private vehicles, making use of the excellent public bus network and walking trails from the hotel. A particular focus on this trip is ensuring all picnic lunch litter is collected, so the stunning natural surroundings can be enjoyed by all.

As a travel company we are acutely aware of our impact on the environment. All of our tours display a carbon footprint, and we strive to reduce our emissions by regularly reviewing our tours and embracing low-impact styles of travel such as trains, public buses or walking which offer the added benefit of getting a closer connection with the destination and local community.

We strive to support nature and biodiversity through protection and regeneration projects, and for every customer that travels with us we make a donation to Rewilding Britain and Cool Earth.

We encourage customers to avoid single-use plastic on tour, and our leaders give advice on refill points each day. All of our tour leaders are provided with a Water-to-Go bottle, allowing them to drink safe water from any source when its not possible to fill up from a tap.

People

Operating outside of the winter ski season helps to provide and extend tourism income in a country that receives most of its tourist income from December to April. In economic terms this provides a clear net benefit to the local areas we visit. During and after the walks we make stops at small villages for refreshments, which is both an opportunity to experience the traditional specialities of this region and also helps support the local economy.

Our tour leaders live locally in neighbouring Spain and are all thoroughly trained by Explore on the importance of responsible tourism, and pass this on to our groups in the initial tour briefing. They bring passion and unrivalled knowledge of the destinations and communities that we visit. Their guidance ensures we observe the cultural norms in a destination, they act as a bridge between travellers and the local community and ensure that tourism is a positive experience for both host and guest. We believe in supporting local; staying in locally-run hotels, exploring markets, buying snacks from street vendors, and by doing this we add money to the local economy and enhance our connection with the local community.
