Planet and peopleOur guided walking vacations in Catalonia and tourism in general has benefited the local community immensely, without tourism many of the local restaurants, hotels, guest houses and craft shops would not exist, all of which employ local staff. Many of the younger generation have also stayed due to the employment tourism brings to the community.
We only work in partnership with local suppliers. The bread we supply for the pack lunches are bought from the local bakery. We buy the fillings from the local market, grocer store and butchers. The accommodation is staffed by locals from the village and there food is sourced locally. We eat out every night as a group at a different restaurant; the restaurants are generally small family owned businesses who buy their produce locally.

All of our business waste is recycled where possible through a local community initiative. All communication via fax is done electronically where possible, saving on paper. On arrival our guests are given information on recycling in the village. They are also given information in the form of a leaflet on how to minimize waste.
