Responsible tourism: Picos family adventure vacation, Spain

Diego Martin, one of our founders, lives and guides the Picos. This vacation has been created by him to best reflect the fun, active side of the mountains. All activities, walks and hotels have been very carefully chosen by him to make the most of your time. It also means that we can adjust each trip to best suit conditions and the group.

Part of what makes the Picos so special is the preservation of a simple rural way of life in remote villages. Your visit helps preserve this way of life by helping fund small rural hotels and restaurants. Activities are arranged and run in conjunction with local suppliers. We book directly, ensuring maximum benefit for local communities.

By booking onto this vacation, you will be helping to actively support the local mountain conservation charity in the area to which you are traveling.

We keep our groups very small (16 max) and we send you lots of information about your destination before you leave guidebooks, maps, local information, etc. Because you travel as an informed tourist, you get more from your vacation and you will know how to minimise the environmental impact of your visit. You can choose to offset carbon emissions from your flights.

Dear Tracy,

Many thanks for taking the time to post a review of your family's vacation.

We're delighted to hear you had such a good time, it really sounds as though the things we love most about the Picos were the highlights for you. Given our historic attachment to the region, it's always a real pleasure for us to introduce clients to the beautiful mountains, food and people. Speaking of people, I know Alex also had a lovely time with you all walking and canyoning!

Thanks again, and we hope to welcome you onto another vacation with us soon.

All the best,

David
