Reviewed on 06 Oct 2023 by Hilary EadeWe all loved meeting local people when we stopped for coffee and lunch. We biked through small villages, on farm tracks and quiet roads and everyone we met was friendly and liked conversing, which we all had fun doing with spattering's of Spanish and French.

Reviewed on 22 Apr 2014 by Beth from CanadaLoved the fact that this worked so well for my husband and I - he's a serious recreational cyclist and I'm an avid cyclist but more casual in my approach. We're '50 something's' and found this all very enjoyable. Read full review
Reviewed on 01 Jan 2014 by Claire HermolleWhat a fantastic vacation! Cycling each day down a new route, through vineyards, small hamlets, to the beach! A vacation quite different to anything we had both been on before. Read full review

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.
PlanetWith regards to the environmental impact, all our guests are encourage to respect the local flora, fauna and wildlife and to act responsibly. They cycle on designated paths and make sure no litter is left behind. All of our business waste is recycled where possible through a local community initiative. All communication via fax is done electronically where possible, saving on paper. On arrival our guests are given information on recycling in this part of Spain. They are also given information in the form of a leaflet on how to minimize waste.
PeopleOur self guided cycling vacations in Catalonia and tourism in general has benefited the local community here immensely, without tourism many of the local restaurants, hotels, guest houses and craft shops would not exist, all of which employ local staff. Many of the younger generation have also stayed due to the employment tourism brings to the community.
All of our accommodation is family owned and staffed by locals with their food being sourced locally. As our vacations run out of season they are particularly grateful of our custom.
We also believe our guests give a positive impact on the community. We encourage all our guests to interact with the local community, this gives both the guests and locals the change to interact and embrace each other’s cultural differences. In order to limit the social impact of tourism all are guests are sent information packs about the local customs, religion, politics and history. We encourage our guests to visit local craft shops and to buy any provisions locally.
