Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

Given most of the time is spent exploring on foot, the trip itself is low carbon. We are committed to offering low impact vacations that benefit the country and communities we visit. Given most of the time is spent exploring on foot, it is important that our staff 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 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.

We operate a ‘leave no trace’ policy on the 53 miles of this tour which was devised in the 1980’s; 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. The Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty was created in 1994 to conserve the rich heritage and character of the dale and its surrounding countryside.

We instruct our customers not to deviate 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.

People

With a history dating back over 300 years, we stay in the Crown Hotel in Harrowgate which platforms the unique flavours and history of the area, plus they recycle as much waste as possible which is one of the reasons they were chosen.

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.

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 Nidderdale Way, especially as we explore primarily on foot. Local services and businesses will be supported as much as possible on this trip.
