Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

This one week walking vacation takes you to a world far away from the more touristed Greek islands of Santorini and Mykonos to the relatively unknown, charming islands of Andros and Tinos.

We encourage travelers to bring their own reusable water bottle, during the walks we also pass natural springs to fill up with fresh clean water - Apikia is known for its decorative stone lion heads on the village fountains.

By taking the public ferry from mainland Greece and between Andros and Tinos, using local buses and walking this helps to reduce our impact on the environment and allows us to see much more of these beautiful islands.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

People

We travel along ancient pathways to discover a traditional and quieter side to Greece. Walking along wide kalderimi, the Ottoman name for paved paths which for centuries were the main routes between villages allowing for trade and communication.

On both islands we stay in small, family run hotels. Eating out is a big part of Greek culture, during this trip dinners can be enjoyed in seafront tavernas, the seafood on offer is freshly caught each day and very tasty! In the towns of Chora and Tinos there is the opportunity to purchase handmade crafts and local products, such as olive oil, sun dried fruits, walnuts and herbs.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
