Description of Jurassic Coast walking vacation in Dorset, UK
This vacation has departures daily from May to September, please inquire for availability on all your tailormade trips.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe are well aware of the impact tourism has at home and abroad, and we make every effort to balance the environmental impact of traveling with the immense benefits sustainable tourism can bring to destinations and the people who live there. So we start in the office: we turn off all electrical equipment every night; we use energy-efficient bulbs; we measure print and paper consumption, and re-cycle wherever possible; we print our brochures on paper from sustainable sources, and send them out in bio-degradable packaging.
Having no minimum number means that groups sizes can be small and therefore the trips have less impact on the environment. Walking has minimal impact on the environment as you provide most of the energy yourself. Also, by walking independently, and not having to worry about keeping up with a group, you set the pace so you can soak up the sights, sounds and scents of your surrounds and really get under the skin of the place youíre visiting. We proactively encourage our customers to think about traveling responsibly too: packing light, saving water, buying locally and re-cycling all maps and route notes at the end of their trip.
PeopleWe use family run hotels, the majority of which are historical buildings which have been lovingly restored to the highest of standards. The hotels we use are situated in beautiful, picture-postcard villages and sea-side towns, putting you right in the heart of beautiful Dorset. We include breakfast every morning, with lunch and evening meals left up to you, giving you the chance to explore what delights the region has to offer, whilst helping to sustain the local economy by encouraging our customers to eat at nearby restaurants. The hotels and restaurants will, where possible use seasonal and locally sourced products to give our customers a truly authentic experience.
When youíre strolling from village to village, you can enjoy a relationship with locals in a way motorists passing through never can. You get off the beaten track, and youíll find that people treat you as a visitor rather than a tourist.
