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.
PlanetWalking is arguably the greenest from of travel with no carbon footprint, good for the health and the land. On this walking vacation we hike in Dartmoor National Park and the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in a variety of different protected environments. Our hikes help to support ongoing efforts to protect these areas and encourage local wildlife and flora and allow us to explore with minimal impact on the natural world.
For every walking vacationmaker we take on these beautiful and rewarding walks through Devon we make a financial contribution to Rewilding Britain, helping to support landowners who want to invest in rewilding, helping people understand their land and restore the natural processes that have been suppressed over time.
As part of our Responsible Travel policy, we advise customers to take reusable water bottles with them on tour. Our local leaders do not actively distribute single-use plastic water bottles. Tap water on this trip is absolutely safe to drink and we encourage customers to refill their bottles from either the hotel or other drinking fountains or springs that we will encounter.
PeopleThis twin-center trip stays in a small locally-run hotels in the towns of Moretonhampstead and Buckfastleigh. This helps ensure that our trips benefits the economy directly where we stay. In addition to this we have chosen to offer the trip on a bed and breakfast basis so that, with the assistance of our local tour leader's knowledge, you can dine out in evenings and help support some of the many restaurants close by the hotel where typical local fare is served.
Our Tour Leaders are qualified, professional walking Leaders that are well trained in the importance of the protection of the environment in which they’re guiding you. We keep our group size to a relatively small number of 16 which helps to avoid damaging the trails and cause less disturbance to wildlife.
When visiting and passing through local towns and villages, you can purchase local food, drink, delicacies as well as any local crafts, and at the end of a walk you may even be tempted by a well-earned pint of local beer in a historical and typical Devonian pub. This helps ensure that our trips benefit the economy directly where we stay.
