Responsible and Sustainable Tourism

Responsible and Sustainable Tourism | Horse Riding Holidays in France | Scoop.it

Increasingly, holiday providers are endorsing "responsible tourism" as a pathway towards sustainable tourism. Responsible tourism and sustainable tourism have an identical goal, that of sustainable development. We are conscious that the actions of each and every one of us have an impact on the environment.

 

Here at Alegria we are committed to providing an excellent quality of service for our guests whilst also minimising the environmental impact of our business activities. By doing so we hope (albeit in a small way) to help maintain the beauty of our region for the enjoyment of visitors and local people alike.

We’ve all been there before—the car rolls in the barnyard, and the weary nine-to-fiver tumbles out, stumbling to the barn for chores, looking like she’d rather be headed inside for a nap. Life gets busy, and we all have days, or even weeks where putting in the time gets difficult.
