Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Whilst walking you are taking part in a healthy activity and visiting the area while reducing road congestion. The local authority encourages people to visit the area on foot using public transport in line with their desire to encourage sustainable tourism.

The Responsible Travel Code of Conduct which you receive with your information pack contains suggestions on how to be an ethical traveler by reducing water usage, recycling and properly disposing of litter, and reducing damage to the environment.

During the booking process for your vacation we reduce paper usage by corresponding by email wherever possible and only printing correspondence which is legally binding. We recycle our ink cartridges and envelopes, and use low energy light bulbs. Paper which cannot be recycled is shredded and composted.

Whilst on this vacation you will be walking at your own pace in your own group. We restrict group sizes on our self-guided walking vacations to a maximum of 12 to reduce impact on the community.

The Impacts of this Trip

We are a family run business and are committed to operating a Responsible Travel Policy. We aim to provide a quality and positive experience for our customers while contributing to and enhancing the local economy and respecting the environment.

The majority of the accommodations we use in Wales are locally owned and operated and use local produce for providing you with breakfast. Wherever possible we use accommodations that are registered with the Green Tourism Business Scheme. There are local shops, pubs and cafes along the route available for lunches and dinners. All these issues make a great difference to the economic welfare of the local community by providing employment.

There are a large number of National Trust Properties in Wales. The membership and entrance fees are used to restore and conserve our heritage, and provide employment for local people. We encourage you to use this walking vacation as means to support your chosen charity by way of sponsorship.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The landscapes. The walking. The people met along the way.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

I discovered that given my level of fitness and my desire to wander en-route, and stop and explore, my ideal walking distance per day is no more than 10 miles.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was very well organized. Went very smoothly from start to finish. The accommodations were lovely. A few places could do with room upgrade but the people were warm welcome and willingness to help out made up for it.
It was a wonderfully memorable vacation and I am looking forward to booking another one as soon as I can.
Thank you!
