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.

Environment
Diversifying into rural tourism allows the villagers to develop an income that contributes towards sustaining the rural economy, and in turn, allows the villagers to continue caring for their land and conserves the diversity of flora, fauna and landscape.

The conservation of these biological and landscape values is crucial in an area acknowledged as a European bio-diversity hotspot but that has little, or no, official status or protection.

A walking vacation also has a small carbon footprint and so has little impact on global warming.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Your visit to this area will both make a difference to the local community and the to the environment. Rural depopulation and an aging population structure are slowly eroding the traditional way of life pursued by the inhabitants of these mountain villages for hundreds of years.

Our main aim in promoting this trek is to help provide these villages with an economic alternative that respects cultural and environmental values. In most, farming is the only means of earning a living. However, continuing reductions in crop prices and rising production costs means that it is becoming less and less viable to farm these steep mountains.

The Walks everyday were so amazing and varied, it is hard to pick a favorite. Also the food was great, and there was lots of it. And the hosts were always welcoming and hospitable. I felt I had made a new friend every day. Read full review

The most memorable part of this vacation is difficult to choose. Probably the longest day over the "moorland " and then down into the valley where we were dwarfed seemingly on all side by the high mountainous walls surrounding it. Read full review
