What is Responsible Tourism?
Responsible and sustainable tourism is the backbone of Wild Atlantic Travel Co.
This involves being environmentally and economically aware when you travel, addressing the needs of visitors and local communities.
Everyone has a responsibility, and we here focus on services that meet the earth’s demands.
Our Ongoing Promise
✔ Reduced energy, waste, fuel, and water usage
✔ Become carbon neutral through native Northern Irish tree planting
✔ Respect the British/Irish Isles landscape through Leave No Trace
✔ Litter picking and adoption of local Pure Mile sites
✔ Encourage the tourism industry to adopt similar practices
✔ Reusable cups and water bottles for customers
Our goal is to avoid over-tourism and support lesser travelled spots to support the economic benefits of small businesses.
All our tours support local produce, maintain sustainable business and promote these isles.
On our tours we implement a lot of exercise, from walking to push and electric bikes that emit less carbon monoxide into the atmosphere, we do this to promote a healthy body as well as a healthy mind.
When required we use coaches and public transport to guide tour groups. By minimising motor vehicle usage we help reduce traffic emissions and air pollutants.
Our tours focus on outdoor activities, exercise, healthy eating and wellbeing to promote healthy living.
We are conscious it is our responsibility to reduce energy, waste, fuel, and water usage – a responsibility we do not take lightly.
