Description of Catalonia to France hiking vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Our partners behind this vacation promote inclusivity on all their trips and across their business and we are all committed to ensuring travelers face no discrimination on any part of the trip they control.
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.
PlanetWith regards to the environmental impact, all our guests are encourage to respect the local flora, fauna and wildlife and to act responsibly. We share our knowledge of local plants, animals, geology, and local history to promote a greater love of the countryside here and hopefully give them a desire to protect it. This is covered during the “welcome meeting”, also our guest are given a detailed information sheet on this on arrival They walk on designated paths and make sure no litter is left behind. 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 this part of Spain. They are also given information in the form of a leaflet on how to minimize waste. All the information giving to customers, maps, routes notes and information packs are returned at the end of the vacation and recycled.
PeopleOur self guided walking vacations in Catalonia and tourism in general has benefited the local community here 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.
All of our accommodation is family owned and staffed by locals with their food being sourced locally. As our vacations run out of season they are particularly grateful of our custom.
We also believe our guests give a positive impact on the community. We encourage all our guests to interact with the local community, this gives both the guests and locals the change to interact and embrace each other’s cultural differences. In order to limit the social impact of tourism all are guests are sent information packs about the local customs, religion, politics and history. We encourage our guests to visit local craft shops and to buy any provisions locally.
