As Green Shoots Emerge within Travel
After the long lockdown, June has seen a very welcome touch of normality return to the Mountain Kingdoms office. Many of you have started thinking about future adventures, and so Niki, Harry, Seraphina and Kirsty have joined our MD, Steve Berry, back in the office to help with all your enquiries.
During the time away we have been walking the trails close to home, making the most of the lovely Cotswold countryside around us, but like you we can’t wait to start exploring further afield again. We have also been busy improving our website, putting together exciting new ideas to add to our inspirational range of holidays and we’re talking to our overseas partners about arrangements to keep you safe on your travels – watch this space!
Message from Steve Berry, Managing Director - Covid-19
The events of the last two months show us all how precious the lives of our loved ones really are. The viability of corporations, airlines, banks and even whole economies have been ignored as mankind has come together to defeat this invisible threat. It is a heartening thought isn’t it, that individual lives are more important than money?
Climate Emergency Plan
At Mountain Kingdoms we are committed to Responsible Tourism and ensuring that all our holidays are undertaken in a way which is socially, environmentally and culturally sound. As part of this commitment we have now joined the Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency initiative.
