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.
We offer a three percent discount to all participants who travel to the cross country ski tour using a train instead of plane travel in order to encourage more sustainable travel for long distance routes. There are several options to get here including a night rain from Paris which was at one point going to be taken off-line and now has a future thanks to the pandemic and people using it!
We plant a tree with our partners Mossy Earth to help offset the carbon footprint of the trip and journey there.
Waste: We operate a paper free office and all the paperwork and information for the trip is communicated electronically and via a specific vacation app for participant's smart phones.
Water: Our cross country ski domains are chosen for their respect for the environment and their innovative ways to protect snow using snow stocking and grooming processes to reduce reliance on artificial snow. Ancelle is a leader in this technique.
Suppliers: All our suppliers sign a commitment to the environment in their partner contract with us with for example eliminating single use plastics for picnics.
PeopleSuppliers: All our suppliers are local family run accommodations and local guides, living in destination where this is their main living, rather than a vacation job. We pay them the market rates and are not interested in cheap labour or people willing to work for nothing for a 'free vacation' as this undermines professional guides and services who have trained and invested in their skills to make a living out of their activity! We believe in paying properly for high quality services and out of respect for our suppliers.
Traveling with respect: As we use local people for all our services, their passion for the local area and ability to share this with our clients is paramount. We believe this engenders a mutual respect for the area and a deeper understanding of the community for our clients.
Campaigning for Change: We are aware that the Alpine community is very dependent on the downhill ski industry and as a company we try to promote more sustainable options to help provide employment and generate the economy outside of these resorts.
