Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We are serious about maintaining the natural beauty of the Cabo De Gata region and marine natural park, and always ensure that the environmental impacts of our activities are kept to a minimum throughout the week.

Our transport throughout the week is kept to an absolute minimum, with our feet being the preferred choice of transport.

We include in our guided walking vacations a link to a very extensive study on the Cabo De Gata regions which includes flora and fauna, geology guides to increase the awareness of the environment and cultural guides to make the walker aware of the local customs and traditions.

We encourage the use of filling your own to water bottle throughout the week to reduce the waste.

Last but not least, as hikers by passion, we have a strong ethic about respecting the places we go to and their environment, either for business or personally (e.g: not leaving any rubbish behind us during a day walk or using reusable water containers), and we encourage our guests to act responsibly while traveling.

The Impacts of this Trip

As on all our vacations there is no exception in the Cabo De Gata walking vacation. We work with local knowledgeable people and reserve your vacation direct with local family run hotels. We always use local transport for our baggage moves and airport transfers. We run our walking vacations in the Cabo De Gate in the winter months when the area mainly quiet and keeps the hotels and restaurants busier than usual.

We always recommend local bars or restaurants were you are walking through a village around lunchtime or 11’s for a café con leche. All these little things help these very small communities survive and keep their traditions.

The hotels we use are all employers of local people, we don’t use chains! We do inspect the hotels regularly to keep the standards we expect.

The route on this walking vacation stays in some very traditional villages with some excellent local produce to try and we thoroughly recommend to try it!
We always send a phrase sheet before you arrive. The older generations in the small villages do not speak English and we find just having the bare basics will make your vacation a much more enjoyable one and help the villagers understand you.
