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

Although the water in Portugal is safe to drink for our customers, we offer the opportunity to purchase a water filter bottle, at a discounted price, that combines three different technologies to remove over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants in water. This allows our clients to fill up from local streams and wells while on walks, and prevents the need for single use plastic bottles

We operate a ‘leave no trace’ policy on all activity days to help maintain them for future generations. Our tour leader is trained to promote this message to our customers whilst on this trip. Lunches can be purchased from local shops and you are encouraged to bring a water bottle, Tupperware container and cutlery to avoid using a plastic bags and plastic knives and forks.

The focus of this trip is primarily walking, however there will be some free time to walk additional trails and we aim to leave minimal impact. This includes sticking to the trails to avoid upsetting the delicate balance for plants and animals, as well as not feeding wildlife as they become reliant on tourists, plus maintaining a safe and respectful distance from wildlife.

We promote the work of a local wildlife rescue center on the Algarve through visits, sometimes during a walk or offering the change to see first hand the work they do during free time.

People

This tour operates during the quieter months of the year for visitors and in areas typically away from the main tourist resorts. It helps to extend the season and reduce the decline in visitor numbers outside of the summer months when tourism drops off.

It is important for us that we work with locals to ensure they benefit from tourism and stay at a Portuguese owned and operated hotel that employ local residents, as well as work with local transport providers that hire locally. We also eat out in the evening at local restaurants, which helps promote local cuisine and wines to our clients as well as financial benefit the area. Our walks take us through small local villages, and we stop at local cafes and purchase picnic lunches from local shops and markets for lunch.

We ensure that our staff are equipped with suitable footwear and clothing to cater for the environment in which they are working on.

We offer millions of pounds 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 named the Charitable Trust.
