This prestigious award serves to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry.
We were hugely honoured to have won this award in 2007 and hope that all of the work and commitment we’ve made to embrace sustainability in our company since then will be recognised. As an organisation that works specifically within wild places we have a real responsibility to operate with great care and minimise any impact we have on the natural environment. We do this in a number of ways, from ensuring all of our guiding team are highly trained in ‘Leave no Trace’ practices to directly supporting the invaluable work of the John Muir Trust – the UK’s leading wild land charity – through our Conservation Contribution Scheme.
For more information on all of our commitments to green operations, please have a read of our Sustainability section.
If you have any experience or knowledge of our green credentials, we would be delighted in you could spare a few minutes of your time to vote for us in these awards. We’re up against some of the big guns of travel such as Kuoni and Exodus so it would be doubly amazing if our small business from the Highlands could scoop the honour. You will have to take a moment to register by email on the World Travel Awards website but you can choose not to receive any emails from them once registered.
Then simply choose the region of ‘World’ and scroll down to our award ‘World’s Leading Green Tour Operator’ which is number 68 in the list. Feel free to vote for any other categories you wish! The awards voting period will end on 26th October.
If we win, we are offering to donate £5 per vote to the John Muir Trust (up to a maximum of £2500 as we are only a wee business!).
