Responsible tourism: Walking vacation in Alicante


Walking vacations respect the environment with a low carbon footprint, we strive to reduce our carbon footprint and atmospheric contanimation by reducing transfers to a minimum, using fuel efficient vehicles and recycling all plastic, glass, paper and cooking oil.

Water is a scarce resource and so to reduce water consumption so we have a shower head installed as well as double plunger toilet cisterns to reduce consumption.

Fire is a serious problem for Mediterranean ecosystems so we observe all regulations on fire safety and request or guests not to light fires anywhere in the countryside.


By staying in small rural communites you are directly supporting the community, it is very difficult to earn a living in these mountain villages and rural depopulation is a serious problem that leads to the abandonment of farm land and increasing forest fires.

We use local shops and services to help maintain local businesses and your presence will also contribute to sustain the rural economy and local business.

Should you wish to buy souvenirs we suggest you buy something from the village such as olive oil, almonds or locally produced spicy sausages. This provides direct benefits to the community and to the environment by supporting those that care for the land.

I wanted this vacation in order to getaway from things for a while and get some peace and quiet - I certainly got this. We have had a nice time and my walking muscles are very toned. The friendliness of the people who ran the various places where we stayed each night was without fault. Read full review

We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the walks immensely. We were given fresh cherries picked from the tree and almonds from the area as nibbles for our walk. Packed lunches were a highlight of each day - wondering what we would have! Read full review

The most remarkable aspect was that just one hour's drive from crowded Benidorm you can trek beautiful countryside without a tourist in site. Being able to see the ordinary lives of the local farmers, harvesting their fruit etc. and staying in villages that seem to stand still in time, was great. Read full review
