Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Short hiking vacation in Austria

Environment

Our vacation is based in a locally owned and managed guesthouse in a high mountain valley in the Austrian Tirol. There is an established practice of recycling as much as possible in the guesthouse. The guesthouse has been extensively renovated and is well insulated to prevent unnecessary heat loss in the winter, thus reducing the amount of energy required. From Spring to late Autumn, visitors are encouraged to go hiking and walking only on well established local trails so that they are not unknowingly contributing to the deterioration of the local environment. Our hikes and nature activities are accompanied by local guides with specialist knowledge of the flora and fauna and natural environment, and this detailed understanding and knowledge is in turn passed on to the guests. Throughout the year all litter is disposed of responsibly to minimise any negative impact on the mountain slopes and trails and all guests are briefed on this issue before the hikes.

Community

We work with as many local suppliers as possible thus supporting the local economy and business people who live in the community, particularly as this is a rural environment. We encourage our guests to buy all food, any outdoor equipment and other items in village stores, where possible, and to socialise in local bars, restaurants and cafes. Our guests all stay in a family run guesthouse whose staff are all local Tiroleans. We work with native German language teachers, specialist mountain guides and local transport providers to support local employment. By supporting these jobs, we are also able to enhance the stay of our guests as they are meeting and living with native German speakers on a daily basis. We actively take part in local events and activities organised by the local community, such as festivals organised to celebrate key events in the annual calendar. Cultural visits and excursions are also included in our trips to give an insight into local traditions and customs.
