Responsible tourism: Portugal guided hiking vacation

Environment

We have a friendship and commitment to the environment. Not only because we have to be responsible, but because we are located in the protected landscape of the UNESCO Peneda Geres National Park. We make use of rain waters for irrigation, reuse the rubbish from food as well as the separation of the form of rubbish that they have less impact on nature and local fauna; As the Wolf, the Corsica or the boar.

Every year 10% of our budget goes to associations of local wildlife protection, so that we can help preserve the species.

Over the years all this work have helped or contributed to other business partners are more attentive will help they can give to the environment and to its protection.

One of the most difficult factors to overcome was to-find responsible suppliers. Only after this phase is surpassed we left for the construction of our houses, wooden houses. Are all built in wood Nordic spruce and for every 10kg of worn wood is planted a tree in this way to reduce the impact.

Also in our food we were careful to analyze the suppliers that met the environmental standards. It was this last question that we build on Farm a biological vegetable garden for guests.

Community

Over the years we have developed a working partnership with local schools, thus allowing students from schools in their free time to collaborate with the activities at the same time acquire knowledge. We will provide local people the opportunity to provide food to our guests as well as encourage you to carry out purchases in own territory.

We have been giving preference and with good results to local workers, giving them jobs or allowing carrying out work with us.

A fundamental aspect is that all who visit us, the guests know the territory and his story about the origin what is now Portugal and for this to be possible nothing better than a good relationship with the local population. So we use guides in our activities of own territory and along our walk we invite them to eat and may spend spaces are served by locals. With this method of visit and contact with the local environment, the visitor stops with a deep knowledge of the habits and customs of an ancestral territory.
