Wye Valley hiking vacation in Wales

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Given 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.

Environment

It is safe to drink the water from the tap in England. For customers keen to avoid buying single use plastic bottles, we encourage them to take advantage of our discounted filter Water-To-Go bottle which removes over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants in water or bring their own reusable water bottles.

We operate a ‘leave no trace’ policy on tour; our tour leaders are trained to promote this message to customers. 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 ecosystems irrespective of the size. We encourage customers not to feed birds or other wildlife as they become reliant on tourists. The hotel has been selected for the number of waste that is recycled.

We include a visit to Tintern Bridge, built in 1876 and the most visible reminder of Tintern's industrial past.

We are committed to offering low impact vacations that benefit the country and communities we visit. The Wye Valley is one of the more remote places for walking in the UK.

Community

On this tour we stay in a locally owned house originally built in 1676 as a hunting lodge for King Charles II. It highlights the flavours and history of the area, plus they recycle as much waste as possible. The hotel also offers employment for local people in the area.

Breakfast and dinners are served at the hotel; however, lunches are taken in a variety of local eating establishments to help spread the financial benefits of tourism. This includes a visit to the Goodrich Tea room.

We offer millions of pounds sterling in financial aid to walking groups within the UK 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 surrounding the Wye Valley, especially as we explore primarily on foot and on ‘rights to roam’ land.
