Description of Coast to Coast self guided walk in England
Daily departures from 23 Mar to 13 Oct
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.
PlanetThe natural landscapes we explore are some of the richest, often most challenging, yet at the same time some of the most fragile environments on earth. With education, experienced leadership and appropriate equipment and techniques, it is possible to travel responsibly through these regions. For us, it is critically important that such wilderness travel experiences do not diminish the natural values of the environment.
Our environmental sustainable principles: True sustainability is a guiding aspect in all aspects of our business planning and operations. Specifically our tour operations should be managed in a way where the natural and cultural values of the host region are undiminished in the long-term.
A walking vacation is an environmentally friendly approach to tourism and we encourage our clients to to further minimise their impact where possible. We recommend instead of using private vehicles to join the Coast to Coast to use the public transport along the way. When in the countryside be mindful that you are walking in National Parks, farmers fields and villages. This information includes to stay on the trails, avoid short cuts and to avoid paths widening if you need to walk through the mud do so. You need to be mindful that you may be walking through fragile environments that are enjoyed by many.
Never pick wildflowers, break branches or damage trees. Keep your distance from wildlife especially in Spring when young are around as this causes great distress.
Anything you take with you for the days walk, must be taken out. Never throw rubbish and dispose in the bins of the next village you come to.
When you make your booking, your pre-departure information is provided by email. Our office uses recycled paper and we recycle our bottles, paper and other items. Office staff travel by public transport to/from work.
PeopleOver the years of organising walks on The Coast to Coast we have built relationships with local accommodation providers and work with them to operate responsibly.
After a thoroughly rewarding dayís walking you will be warmly welcomed into a locally owned hotel, B&B or guesthouse. Mrs Jackson who runs the Knotts View in Stonethwaite Village has been working with us for 20 years and the property has been family run since 1904. Within the same village we try and use a variety of accommodation to ensure that we are supporting many within the community.
We encourage you to purchase lunch and dinners from the local shops, village farmers markets, pubs and cafes along the way which in turn helps employment within the community. When you stop in at the Shepherds Arms at Ennerdale, sample one or two of the real ales from around Cumbria.
Friendly local staff are ideally placed to give you a knowledgeable insight into the local terrain, flora and fauna and an authentic account of the history of the region.
No local payments policy: Local cash payments are becoming increasingly popular with many operators in the adventure travel industry. This policy seems to benefit the tour operators more than the local economies or the travelers, as it avoids local taxes and transfers the costs and risks of cash handling onto the travelers. In accordance with our Responsible Travel practices, we have chosen a policy of not asking for such payments.
