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

In most of Spain, we are already keenly aware of the need to conserve water. The establishments we work with have water conservation practices that guests are encouraged to support. When tours start, we brief guests on the "whys" of these practices. We also encourage the use of reusable drinking bottles, which most cyclists and hikers already use. We provide any to guests if necessary.

The trails we will hike and cycle are established and approved trails. We do not encourage or support any "off-piste" activities. Guests will be reminded to be respectful of any wildlife in the area and also to ensure they gather any rubbish that they may generate along the way. We normally stop for organised lunches either at local restaurants or using local chefs to cater outdoors taking full responsibility for ensuring the area is properly cleaned up after use. We try to seriously limit the use of plastics and prewrapped foods by having as many snacks as possible at local cafes. We use reusable containers for on-route snacks.

98 per cent of our communication and marketing materials are digital. We produce a very limited number of 1-page leaflets for those not so digitally inclined otherwise we run a paperless operation.

As cyclists and hikers, we are committed to a different type of travel; one that uses our legs/feet to get us around and discover places. All the same, we take this a step further as we stage our trips in the center of the towns and villages so once people arrive, they will only be using their feet or legs to start their tours, visit the town or villages, go to nearby restaurants, shops and cafes. If we do need to move people because a starting point or a visit is further afield, we do so by carpooling; using one or two vehicles to move the group from point A to point B.

People

Our tours support of local businesses and community is at the heart of our DNA. Our goal is to promote these cycling and hiking paradises we have discovered for our tours, in a sustainable, responsible way, supporting the local community and businesses of these rural areas we have come to know and love. We understand that depopulation is a modern threat in these areas. Many of the people we partner with, are young entrepreneurs who have taken the risk and made a choice to carve out their livelihood in these areas. Our tours become community projects as we involve local businesses; boutique hotels, guides, bike shops, restaurants/local chefs and producers, shops, wineries, historic monuments and cultural attractions. We support actions that help preserve our natural surroundings and consume locally. We act as purveyors of the best and most authentic local experiences. We encourage our guests to shop locally for any souvenirs or gifts by providing a list of places where they can do this and, when possible, supporting locally made products. We proactively promote these businesses and individuals as a part of our ongoing communications and marketing. Our success is their success and vice versa.
