Leave lighter tracks on your next trip

We’re teaming up with fellow B Corp and sustainable tour operator Byway to give travellers the chance to move slowly and mindfully through Europe on flight-free itineraries. Nostalgia, adventure and responsible travel come together on rail, bike and bus trips that are as much about the journey as the destination.  

Travelling from London to Venice to pick up your Intrepid Real Food Adventure in Italy? Why not look to make your journey way more friendly towards the planet and far more fun by travelling with Byway, stopping off in Paris, Zurich, the Swiss Alps, Tirano and Milan along the way.  

What are the benefits of slow travel? 

On average, a traveller going by train to Venice has an environmental footprint of 6.8kg CO2, while flying creates a footprint of 177.4kg CO2*. That means choosing flight-free travel saves around 170kg of CO2 for this one-way trip. 

But that’s not all – Byway have loads of flight-free and super-scenic ways of getting from A to B, ensuring your journey is as easy on the eyes as it is on the environment. Want to get on board? Just reach out to our sales team or jump on the Byway website.
