Responsible tourism: Canadian Rockies small group vacation

Environment

This trip includes visits to both Jasper and Banff national parks, where our travelers will have the opportunity to witness the natural beauty that makes them highlights of any vacation in western Canada. We make a big effort to educate our travelers on how to be respectful and safe around the flora and fauna here. We also conduct our business using strict leave-no-trace policies, which helps to preserve the precious habitats of Canadian animals, such as elk, black bears, grizzly bears, eagles, Rocky Mountain goats etc. Tour leaders will always educate travelers that wild animals should be viewed Ė without contact or interaction Ė doing what they do best: living in the wild.

Our tour leaders encourage their passengers to reuse or purchase reusable shopping bags and water bottles. As well the groups travel with large recycling bins too, so that they can store recyclables items no matter where they are.

Our Canadian Rockies trip is carbon offset, so you can be sure that all emissions generated are counterbalanced by investments in sustainable projects around the world, including a rice husk biomass initiative in Thailand as well as hydroelectricity schemes in China and India.

Community

Our philosophy is all about acting local and that means respecting the local traditions in the destinations we visit. We also take real care to form genuine and mutually beneficial relationships with local people. An excellent example is our excursion to Sun Peaks on the sixth day, when we head out by canoe to an outpost where a four-course feast of salad, bannock, soup, salmon, ribs and cookies will be prepared. This provides a taste of how the old fur traders used to travel and what they ate along the way. Itís great for our travelers to be able to engage with the locals and learn about their way of life. We find that itís often these experiences which make our trips unique.

We travel in small groups of 13 people to minimise the negative effects that large groups can have when visiting remote areas and small villages. We also avoid the most crowded areas of the national parks we travel to, in order to lessen the impact on the local environment. Itís much easier to 'blend in' with a small group and it allows us to stay in smaller properties and eat in more local establishments, which supports the local economy.
