Vacation information

Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


So difficult to chose! The hikes were the main highlights, because that was what attacted me the most of this trip, a personal challenge for me. The locations were amazing and the routes were always very well planned

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


To trust the organisers and the guide, and to be ready to take on any opportunity provided to do things, try experiences and meet people. Be mindful of your ability with hiking but don't let them stop you as there will be alternatives

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The town was small but I liked that we went to a different place every day. It was not the highest season for tourism so we provided some business.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


An amazing experience. It was all very well organised from the start, which helped to create something great overall. The guide was truly passionate and extremely competent, the group of people had previous experience with the operator and they had helpful feedback. Also, we easily and quickly created a sense of communicty that helped made the trip even more memorale.

Responsible Travel

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.

Planet and people

On this tour to the Andorran Pyreness we stay in a locally owned hotel in the village of Soldeu in the north of the country. The hotel is environmentally and socially aware and employs locally, uses local produce for meals, offering both hot and cold buffet meals, and desists from washing towels daily. Our tour leaders live locally in neighbouring Spain and are all thoroughly trained by Explore on the importance of responsible tourism, and pass this on to our groups in the initial tour briefing. A particular focus on this trip is ensuring all picnic lunch litter is collected, so the stunning natural surroundings can be enjoyed by all. We use a combination of local or charter buses for transfers; however, for the most part of course we will be on foot! Our groups are limited to a maximum of 16 customers to reduce the impact on the environment and community, which also means that we can still find local restaurants to accommodate everyone.

In addition to the above, we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage. As well as this, we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of UK travel industry bodies Tourism Concern and AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.

As a company we support Cool Earth. Protecting rainforest is one of the most effective actions to tackle climate breakdown. Cool Earth work with indigenous communities empowering them to conserve their forest; keeping CO2 locked in.
