Small group tours:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modeled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
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.
Few vacations have as little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as a trekking trip. Erosion on and adjacent to popular paths is a growing problem in certain places and therefore our trip leaders encourage clients to stick to advised routes in order to minimise this. We operate with a ‘leave no trace’ policy, which is enforced by our guides. By using a combination of private transfers and public transport to get to and from Lustrafjord , we also support local infrastructure and businesses. There are also opportunities to take additional guided excursions (e.g. walking on Nigardsbreen glacier) which contribute to local economy.
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK Offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
PeopleAccommodation and Meals:
We will spend one night in a hotel in Bergen, and the remaining six nights at a private guesthouse located on a working farm. The farmhouse is a cosy, 18th century building made entirely from wood and situated right on the doorstep of the Lusterfjord. Not only does Nes Farm make its own produce and comply with tight environmental regulations, but the guesthouse is locally owned and staffed- so by staying here we support the environment and surrounding communities. Most meals are included, and the food provided is hearty, home cooked and freshly sourced from the area. There are small, local shops at the Bryggen and fish markets in Bergen, where clients are welcome to support local businesses and try regional specialties. At the markets, you can pay for your choice of fresh seafood (king crabs, lobster, salmon, herring, sardines etc.) and they can prepare and cook it for you.
A Fair Deal:
We work closely with our local operator and ensure that our local guides are paid and treated fairly in exchange for their expertise and passion for the region. The leaders will give a briefing on responsible tourism issues to help you understand how you can help reduce your impact and maximise the benefits to the local community from your visit.
This small group tour has a maximum of 16 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the environments and communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. The small number also allows us to stay in unique, family-run hotels that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited sizes.
