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

We advise all of our clients to stay to the marked paths. This is to maintain the environment as they pass so that it remains pristine for walkers using the pathways in the future. It is also important in order to keep some distance from the local wildlife. We also advise that they take all of their rubbish with them until the end of the day and recycle or dispose of it as is appropriate. We also encourage clients to take their own water bottles and use boiled or locally purified water to eliminate the purchase of plastic water bottles.

As much as possible on this trek we have tried to ensure that the walking is done from hotel to hotel, meaning that there is no need to be transported from or to a hotel each day and reduces the need for transportation journeys and their effect on the environment. When the luggage needs to be transferred we use the hotels or local companies to ensure that the driving required is kept to a minimum.

People

Most of the accommodation providers we use on our Shropshire Way trek are small and family run, and we pride ourselves in working with such establishments. These establishments are most in need of tourism income and their ability to continue their success is important to the area in which they operate as it provides employment opportunities and supports other local businesses.

We also arrange for our clients to eat either at the hotels or at small local restaurants, again keeping the income in the small towns and villages where they stay overnight. We also use either the accommodation providers or local taxi companies to transport the clients and their luggage necessary for this trek. Again, providing employment opportunities and supporting local businesses.

As our clients are generally independent walkers, we have a low impact on the communities they visit and are able to ensure that their activities do not disrupt local people.
