North Wales guided walking vacation
Description of North Wales guided walking vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
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.
PlanetAs a responsible tour operator, we pride ourselves on only working with local, independent partners who share in our passion to positively impact our local communities and environment.
Our local, professional walking guides are Mountain Leader qualified for your safety. This means they’re also well trained in the importance of the protection of the environment in which they’re guiding you. As outdoor adventurers and nature lovers ourselves, we care passionately about ensuring we have no negative impact on our local landscape or the wildlife that calls it home. As well as adhering to the Mountain Leader guiding ratio of 1:10, keeping our group size to such a small number means we avoid damaging the trails and cause less disturbance to the timid wildlife. It also means you enjoy the most authentic, personal experience.
The accommodation for your hiking adventure is a 5* rated hostel, vted in the Top 100 Hostels in the World. This stylish hostel is as environmentally conscious as we are, sourcing furnishings from local businesses wherever possible and, most recently, creating a new breakfast hamper for guests. These hampers are filled with the finest, locally sourced produce and packaged sustainably using reusable wax wraps and glass.
PeopleAt the heart of everything we do is a passion to support our local community. One of the best ways we can do this is to solely work with local independent partners, all of whom are equally passionate about supporting the community in which they're based. Finding employment in rural areas has always been a challenge and often leads to young people feeling they have no choice but to move away when they reach employment age.
Our walking guides all live locally, so not only are we supporting local employment, they know the area like the back of their hand. And when you’re welcoming guests into your home, it’s natural to have a passion for ensuring they have the best possible experience.
We also encourage you to try the local pubs and use the village shop for any supplies you may need. These rural businesses rely on regular trade to keep them open, so please do support them by buying local whenever you can.
