Responsible tourism

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

Environment
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.

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.

There are many opportunities to spot wildlife on this tour and our leaders encourage travelers to act in a responsible way so as not to upset the careful balance of nature. This is especially prevalent in Canada where the concentration of National Parks where bears, moose, deer and other wildlife are likely to be spotted. We discourage the feeding of animals, and any interaction which could challenge safety or cause fear.

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.

All water is safe to drink from the tap on this trip and we advise customers to bring a reusable water bottle from home, and not buy single use plastic bottles.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

On this tour as most meals are included, we 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. We use local campsites, accommodation and activity providers.

Given the short summer season in Canada, we aim to provide as much money into the hands of local people, using only smaller locally based service providers. We shop at the smaller supermarkets as well as the larger ones to help disperse tourism dollars.
