As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Our trip takes you along the shores of Lake Geneva, as well as through the French countryside, cycling by the region's vineyards and fields. It is organized on a self-guided basis, offering you the chance to experience such natural beauty while leaving behind a smaller footprint than would a guided tour.
