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.
PlanetGiven most of the time is spent exploring on foot, the trip itself is low carbon. it is important that our staff, local partners and customers are aware of the delicate balance which exists in the places we visit, and leave no trace.
It is safe to drink the water from the tap in Ireland however, for customers keen to avoid buying single use plastic bottles we encourage customers the chance to purchase a discounted filter Water-To-Go bottle which combines three different technologies to remove over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants in water.
We operate a ‘leave no trace’ policy in national parks, archaeological sites, and ‘rights to roam’ land areas. Our tour leaders are trained to promote this message. As the focus of this trip is primarily walking, we aim to leave a minimal impact on the areas as possible. This includes not deviating from designated walking areas, so as not to upset the flora and fauna.
We encourage all our customers to keep a safe distance from animals and not to feed wildlife as they become reliant on tourists. This is especially prevalent given the amount of bird life and livestock in the area.
We are committed to offering low impact vacations that benefit the country and communities we visit. We stay in a more remote area of Northern Ireland and eat in local establishments.
PeopleOn this tour we stay in two smaller and locally owned hotels. We have selected to stay in a more remote part of County Antrim and have been using both hotels for over ten years; we were the first tour company to stay here. Both hotels recycle waste as much waste as possible.
We offer financial aid to walking groups within Ireland to maintain walking by young and old for future generations, rebuild broken paths and bridges washed away. This falls under an organisation called the Charitable Trust.
We cap passengers at a maximum of 18 customers so as not to impact on the environment within County Antrim, especially as we explore primarily on foot and on ‘rights to roam’ land.
We split the group between two smaller hotels and eat in a local restaurant in a town where there is only one restaurant. This helps to bring economic benefit to residents.
