Thoughtful and responsible treks

Our partners Adventurous Ewe are committed to delivering events in a responsible and ethical manner with sustainability at its core. They respect and aim to operate treks which benefit and protect the local people, their economy and the environment!
Some of the ethical event management features embedded in the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge are:

  • Use of local crew who are qualified Leaders and who are all extremely knowledgeable and experienced
  • Minimising plastic waste wherever possible refilling water bottles and flasks
  • Small group travel to minimise the impact on the environment, to maximise your safety and well-being and to make your experience more authentic and personable
  • No route markers on the trek which are often made from plastic based products and non-biodegradable
  • Operate on a ‘Leave no trace ethos’ – Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but boot-prints, keep nothing but memories.

If you are interested in booking either a large group or a bespoke challenge please get in contact with us by email and we can discuss your requirements.
