Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Yukon canoe adventure, Canada

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 Bay Area Wilderness Training (www.bawt.org) a charity based in Oakland California which works to connect disadvantaged children in the local urban area with the great outdoors. Their work helps to provide these young people with life changing experiences which they can
apply to everyday life. Everyone booking with Grand American Adventures has the option to donate £1/$1/€1 to support this well-deserved charity and we will match this donation.

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.

The Yukon Territory is frequent less by tourists to Canada and is an area of outstanding natural beauty – this tour takes you further into the less touristic areas which ultimately helps disperse money filtered into tourism more evenly. All rubbish used on this canoe trip is taken out and the majority of this tour is conducted by human energy as opposed to a vehicle.

Given the short tourism season in the Yukon Territory, we aim to provide as much money into the hands of local people, using only smaller locally based service providers.

On this tour you will encounter wildlife in their natural habitat. The guides are specially trained to instruct travelers on how to behave in a safe and considerate way so as not to disturb the careful balance between nature and wildlife.

As this is a camping tour we use wilderness campsites with no bathroom facilities. All camping and cooking rubbish is disposed on in a thoughtful and responsible manner.
