Headwater and our sister company, Exodus Travels, were two of the first companies in the UK to declare a climate emergency. For decades, we’ve been actively seeking ways to reduce our carbon emissions in an effort to reduce and mitigate the environmental impact of our holidays. From our wide range of single-centre-based trips in the UK and Europe, which reduce the need for transfers and additional travel, to our accessible booking service that offers train travel return options for most of our European trips, we believe in minimising our impact every step of the way on our Walking and Cycling Holidays.
With many of our European trips, you have the option to chat to a member of our Headwater team to extend your adventure by booking your departure and return trip on the train. Not only does travelling by train produce far less carbon than flying and cut down queuing times in the airport, most of Europe’s high-speed rail connections take you to the very heart of a destination, meaning you also cut down on buses, taxis, and transfers. So, whether you’re looking to discover world-class art galleries and iconic canal streets on our Cycling from Brussels to Bruges trip with a quick, direct connection from London St Pancras International station or book an overnight sleeper rail towards the beautiful way-marked trails and enchanting chocolate-box villages on our Classic Swiss Alps walking holiday, rest assured a member of our staff will help to assist you with booking an environmentally friendly alternative to air. For single-centre based trips, why not book our Walking in Chablis Vineyards trip, so you can explore the medieval villages and outstanding vineyards in Burgundy while staying at our 3* gastronomic boutique hotel, Hostellerie des Clos. Or enjoy a wonderful stay in the rustic Agriturismo La Pietriccia on our Taste of Tuscany Cycling, where you can unwind by the pool and enjoy traditional Tuscan cuisine cooked with produce lovingly grown on-site.
