Responsible tourism: Dales Way walking vacation in Yorkshire, England

Environment

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 local authority encourages people to visit the area on foot using public transport in line with their desire to encourage sustainable tourism.

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

The majority of the accommodations we use are locally owned and operated and use local produce for breakfast, thus reducing "food miles" and sustaining the local economy. Wherever possible we use accommodations that are registered with the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

When transferring your luggage to your next accommodation we consolidate with others along the Dales Way wherever possible to reduce energy consumption.

During the booking process for your vacation 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 vacation you will be walking at your own pace in your own group. We restrict group sizes on our self-guided walking vacations to a maximum of 12 to reduce impact on the community and the environment.

Community

When walking on the Dales Way we aim to provide a quality and positive experience for you while contributing to and enhancing the local economy and respecting the environment of countryside, towns, rivers and forests.

The locally owned accommodations give our guests a warm welcome and recommend local pubs, cafes and restaurants along the Dales Way for lunches and dinners. All these issues make a great difference to the economic welfare of the local community by providing employment and sustaining the local economy.

By taking this vacation on the Dales Way you are contributing to the community by providing income for accommodation providers, pub landlords, restaurant and cafe owners, luggage transfer drivers, and local farmers. There are a large number of National Trust Properties in the Yorkshire Dales area. Whilst walking on the Dales Way we encourage guests to visit Bolton Abbey, Barden Tower, and the Settle to Carlisle Railway. The membership and entrance fees are used to restore and conserve our heritage, and provide employment for local people.

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

All our used postage stamps are collected and used to raise money for local good causes.
