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.
PlanetWhen traveling along Italyís Amalfi Coast we use public transport wherever possible as this is the most environmentally-friendly way of traveling. On our Hike, Boat & Kayak trip we use private transport when public transport isnít feasible, but this will always be hired locally.
All our leaders are passionate about responsible travel, so our messaging around the importance of environmental issues is always consistent. Our leaders make the effort to teach our passengers about recycling opportunities, and Italy has good recycling schemes in place. We hope some of our travelers will take these ideas home with them to help improve the environment where they live.
We advise our travelers on the water shortage problems in this part of Italy and ask them to keep their showers short to minimize wastage. On our hikes through the beautiful Italian scenery, we also actively encourage the philosophy that you should take out any rubbish you may have brought in.
PeopleOur multi-active trips in Italy are run by an operator that is fully owned and operated by locals. These operators also employ local leaders who are native to the regions we travel to. Each year we provide operator and leader training on various subjects, including responsible travel. Before signing any contracts, we always ensure that suppliers share our philosophy and stance on environmental issues.
We make sure our small groups take nothing but memories (and photos!) and leave nothing but footprints. This small group tour has a maximum of 12 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the communities we visit and are able to ensure that we donít disrupt or contribute to the displacement of local people.
Many of the areas near Naples and around the Amalfi Coast experience high volumes of day-trip tourists, with visitors mainly staying on cruise ships. A style of tourism that doesnít benefit the local communities. This itinerary takes the road less travelled and focuses on exploration of more rural areas like Agerola, a place not even on the radar of most day-trippers. Visiting these sorts of areas means our presence can directly profit the local economy.
The activities on this trip like kayaking are led by local experts. Taking part in these sorts of outdoor adventures not only benefits the local people financially, but also helps to sparks a mutual understanding between our travelers and the communities of this region.
