Responsible tourism: USA & Canada wildlife tour of the Pacific coast

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 and disposing of all waste responsibly and recycling whenever possible.

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.

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.

As it is quite possible that our groups will meet wildlife on the hiking trails, our tour leaders educate travelers on how best to interact with the wildlife in the parks, for example advising people not to feed the animals to stop them becoming dependent on hand-outs from humans.

Community

Whenever possible, we use local accommodation and activity providers such as the hot springs visit in Olympic National Park. On top of this, our leaders will take the group to smaller family-run restaurants and visit local shops whenever possible. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit.

On this tour, we use specialist guides including a bear viewing guide on the included Zodiac trip, whale watching guide on the Zodiac tour. Both activities are conducted in a small Zodiac boat and at a safe distance so as not to disturb and interfere with wildlife in their natural habitat.
