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.
PlanetWe work exclusively with local, independent partners whose values align with our own - to positively impact the communities and environment we operate in.
You will be based at a remote, off-grid bunkhouse for two nights of your trip. The bunkhouse, located at the foothills of Snowdon, is powered entirely by solar panels for electricity and biomass system to heat the accommodation. Working with partners like this helps us to lower the carbon footprint of our tours.
In the heart of Beaumaris is the Beaumaris Castle, which we encourage you to visit during your stay. Known as the most perfect castle that was never built, Edward Iís ambitions exceeded his budget and left him unable to complete the castle. What he did manage to build is still very impressive, with perfect symmetry and walls within walls design, itís a true insight into Edward Iís vision for his Iron Ring of castles around North Wales. Maintained and preserved by Cadw, the Welsh Governmentís historic environment service, your admission fee to this historic architectural site directly supports the continued preservation of Beaumaris Castle for future generations.
PeopleOur passion for supporting the local community is at the heart of everything we do. One of the many ways we are able to do this is solely working with local independent partners, all of whom share our passion for supporting the community they are part of. It is often a challenge to find employment in rural areas and so young people feel they have no other option than to move away when they reach employment age.
Using local guides to lead your coasteering experience and river bugging activity on our Active Adventure Family trip, we are able to provide opportunities for guiding jobs such as these. Alongside our partners, we are able to help more young people remain in their hometowns. Retaining local people who are able to understand the local customs and the people who live there is a huge benefit to these rural communities.
One of the main concerns within rural towns around North Wales is homes being sold as vacation cottages, which push property prices up and leave young locals unable to afford to buy in their area. An increase in houses becoming vacation cottages forces more locals to move away, which in turn erodes local customs and leaves towns empty in winter months when vacationmakers leave.
Paying our employees and partners a fair wage is not only the right thing to do for the invaluable services they provide, it means they can continue to afford housing within their home town. Weíre proud to support local people, keeping local talent and local communities thriving in the future.
An important consideration for us when planning adventures for travelers in North Wales is to ensure small communities remain balanced. Big groups of tourists descending on one place can put unsustainable pressure on resources and infrastructure. Doing so in summer months, while bringing none in winter months, can mean that small businesses cannot survive year round.
We only run small group tours for this very reason. Itís also beneficial to you too, giving you a more authentic experience. But importantly, it almost completely eliminates the commercial imbalance caused by overtourism.
