Lyon: responsible travel

With Atalante, it’s been 20 years since Frédéric Faure and Christophe Leservoisier, two Lyonnais, chose to reveal the world to us differently by putting man at the heart of the journey.

The group brings together several brands: Atalante, Terra Incognita, Cheval d’Aventure, Origins, Continents Insolites and Azoka. A la carte: 6 ways to discover our planet. Don’t expect to find an Atalanta trip in an agency in the common sense of the word. You will have to go to an original space that develops a direct relationship with its customers in order to better understand their expectations and this in a very cocooning decor far from the sanitized premises with frozen posters. 3 addresses: Atelier in Lyon, Appart in Paris or Maison in Brussels. For others, the website is very well built.

A state of mind
Long before it became trendy, Frédéric and Christophe initiated a different philosophy of leaving. It allows the achievement of responsible tourism based on fundamental values ​​that they have never given up. Listening is a priority. That of the client who is led by the team to reveal his aspirations, his dreams, his possibilities. That also of its partners, essential parts in the success of a course: of the guide true bridge between our daily newspaper and the stay while passing by all the people met during a voyage. Independence is another of the keys to the success of this structure. It has always enabled them to concoct different trips, to work with partners who share the same aspirations in terms of hospitality, logistics and the quality of services. Atalante offers responsible tourism that passes the ethical charter drawn up in 1997, implying respect for fair principles aimed at limiting its impact on the environment and generating a real plus for the local populations with concrete actions on the ground. It is no coincidence that the group has just received the “fair and sustainable” label awarded by the city of Lyon.

Nourishing journeys
The “new 2010 collection” has just been released! Again, no catalog but real guides in which each destination becomes unique with its riches and secrets. When you choose an Atalanta trip, you choose to get involved physically and mentally. On foot, on horseback, by treading golf courses, during a tailor-made trip, the hiker becomes a globetrotter through meetings with local populations, understanding of habits and customs, respect for lands to discover. Trekking around the world, equestrian expeditions, hand-sewn circuits, more recently circuits for golfers and recently programs just for women. The menu is very complete without the risk of indigestion. Whether you like sport, independence, refinement, culture … a formula is made for you. Each year, 120,000 people, both individuals and businesses, take advantage of 480 tours in more than a hundred destinations all over the world, never to travel like a suitcase.
