Responsible tourism: Yellowstone NP Solar Eclipse vacation, USA

We are committed to offering low impact tours that benefit both the places and communities we visit as well as our travelers. It is important for us all to be aware of the delicate balance that exists in the variety of natural wonders you will visit. National Parks and monuments, archaeological sites and other sensitive areas should and must be treated with respect.

We have created a 'Travelers' Code of Conduct' to help prepare and inform our groups of the various positive or negative effects they could have on a destination. The code includes tips on everything from handling wildlife encounters to how you can help to conserve precious natural resources. Our tour leaders will explain this code of conduct during the first night’s orientation talk and encourage you to follow it throughout the tour.

Safety viewing glasses will be provided to all travelers and spares will be on hand. The eclipse will be viewed in an area of outstanding beauty so your tour leader will ensure that all information is provided to protect the area, and that a leave no trace policy is enforced.

This code includes following the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic, this is an international campaign that is designed to help us minimise the impact on the National Parks and other wilderness areas that we visit. Some key guidelines we follow include keeping to existing trails, staying in official campgrounds and disposing of all waste responsibly and recycling whatever we can.

We are proud supporters of the American Hiking Society, which champions conservation issues in the United States and represents millions of hikers committed to preserving America’s vast network of hiking trails and their surrounding ecosystems.

Whenever possible, we use local accommodation and activity providers. We also shop locally for groceries, eat in small family-run restaurants and visit local shops whenever possible. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit.

In Yellowstone, this tour provides employment to local specialist guides such as a wolf tracking guide, geologist guide, and wildlife guide. As well as giving travelers a greater understanding of wildlife in its natural habitat, we view from a safe distance and with minimal impact so as not to upset the balance of nature.

By offering a trip which covers a smaller and more focussed area, we are able to spend more time highlighting the key highlights, whilst avoiding covering large amounts of road miles to visit them.

As this is a camping tour we use only government regulated and approved campsites where recycling is of the utmost importance, and all camping and cooking rubbish is disposed on in a thoughtful and responsible manner.
