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.
PlanetDiversifying 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.
PeopleYour 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.
