Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

We are a family run business and are committed to operating a Responsible Travel Policy. We aim to provide a quality and positive experience for our customers while contributing to and enhancing the local economy and respecting the environment.

Whilst walking you are taking part in a healthy activity and visiting the area while reducing road congestion. The Northern Ireland Countryside Access and Activities Network encourages people to visit the area on foot using public transport in line with their desire to encourage sustainable tourism.

There are a large number of National Trust Properties including Giantís Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, Dunseverick Castle, White Park Bay, and Ballyconagan Nature Reserve on Rathlin Island. The membership and entrance fees are used to restore and conserve our heritage, and provide employment for local people.

The Responsible Travel Code of Conduct which you receive with your information pack contains suggestions on how to be an ethical traveller by reducing water usage, recycling and properly disposing of litter, and reducing damage to the environment.

The accommodations we use in Portrush, Bushmills, Ballintoy and Ballycastle are locally owned and operated and use local produce for providing you with breakfast. Wherever possible we use accommodations that are registered with the Green Tourism Business Scheme. There are local shops, pubs and cafes available for lunches and dinners. All these issues make a great difference to the economic welfare of the local community by providing employment.

During the booking process for your holiday we reduce paper usage by corresponding by email wherever possible and only printing correspondence which is legally binding. We recycle our ink cartridges and envelopes, and use low energy light bulbs. Paper which cannot be recycled is shredded and composted.

Whilst on this holiday you will be walking at your own pace in your own group. We restrict group sizes on our self-guided walking holidays to a maximum of 12 to reduce impact on the community.

We encourage you to use this walking holiday as means to support your chosen charity by way of sponsorship.
