Our vehicles are serviced regularly to ensure they are running at their optimum for best fuel economy and minimising exhaust emissions. Within our hostels and our offices we look to minimise all waste and look to recycle wherever possible. We strive to make the most efficient use of water and minimise our energy consumption.

MacBackpackers currently owns 100 hectares of woodland in the heart of the Scottish Highlands which is in the process of being re-planted with 100% indigenous Scottish species, helping us minimise our carbon footprint. We are 90% there!!
