Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

Walking involves a little impact to the environment. Walking by well marked paths we will reduce a little bit more our footprint helping to protect some fragile areas in our region of Alentejo & Vicentina Region.
Our clients will get plenty of good memories and snapshots of this coastal hiking adventure. All of the walks are coastal based and between small and rural hotels near or inside the small fishermen’s villages.
This way we know that we are contributing to a sustainable development of this region and creating jobs to local people, generating small companies in different areas of tourism.
All accommodations are rural hotels so we want to transmit people genuine countryside lifestyle with all the comfort and promote interaction with local habits.
At the farm/rural accommodations, almost everything is grown according to organic principles, composting and recycling.
Water is heated by solar panels and central heating provided by our own woodland and energy.

People

The vacation is based in the Alentejo Coastal area, passing through the Natural Park of Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina, that means that we are contributing to create a sustainable ecosystem, giving the local authorities more tools to control and preserve this area constantly.
The local community will be a big part of this vacation contributing with their knowledge about the region and help to find the best restaurants and small artisans/handcraft shops to visit.
These are really small villages so all the income is really important to this villages, de biggest one as around 3000 residents and the smallest one as no more than 350 people living there.
Usually they produce and catch their one food, being the local Sea bass, Sea Bream and Sardine the favorite fishes with cooked vegetables or salads, they also produce the Iberian Black Pig a delicious meat that reveals the importance to grown them with time and in freedom.
