Responsible tourism: Basque country walking vacation, self guided

Environment

We live in the land that we promote and we love its natural beauty. This is one of the main reasons our goal is to preserve it, and we encourage all visitors to act responsibly, respecting the wildlife, to ensure that the environmental impacts of our activities are kept to a minimum.

We reuse and recycle paper. We use ecological paper in all our publicity brochures and other documents to do a responsible use of the natural resources, and we do not print anything except the necessary to save paper.

Besides, on arrival our guests are given information on recycling in this part of Spain, explaining tips about the different kinds of containers and what they are for, and suggestions for how to reduce water use that they can follow both during their vacations or once they are back home.

With all the documents, we also give them tips and suggestions to visit local projects and on walking without impacting fragile environments.

Community

One of the main goals of our company is to promote local culture, with its traditions, gastronomy and everything that make s this land unique.

We explore the Basque Country in a responsible way, in small groups, taking our time to know the authentic local life, having real contact with local people and its projects. We really believe that when all these things are brought closer to the visitors and they realize it is something with a high cultural value, it is easier to preserve it over time. 

When booking, all our guests are advised to visit a website with all the information about the social, historical and political situation in the Basque Country, linked as well from our website. Our land has a peculiar history and we want people coming here to know as much as possible about the culture, so they can enjoy it better.

In the welcoming packet is recommended to visit some cultural spots to go deep in the tradition of this special land. In order to help visitors to interact with locals they are given a common phrases document in Euskera and Spanish to help them to encourage the challenge. We also encourage them to eat locally and will direct them to local markets and shops that are accessible along the way - for example in San Sebastian and Getaria.
