A tour of France in the middle of summer, for a group of around 30 people, necessarily requires special logistics. After a very nice experience at the CIS of Val Cenis during the Sun Trip Tour 2019, we led a reflection with the national network éthic étapes, social tourism specialist present in the 4 corners of the country, on an organization of a Sun Trip in France in 2022.
The change of course imposed by the 2020 crisis led us to accelerate the discussion, and it is by relying on 5 establishments of the network that we imagined the route of the Sun Trip France 2020. Our participants will therefore be welcomed at éthic etapes in Lyon, Blois, Saint-Malo, Anduze et Val Cenis !
A Word From the Partner
The national éthic étapes network, a voluntary union of social tourism for more than 40 years, is proud to be a partner of Sun Trip France 2020. This meaningful collaboration stems from the sharing of values closely linked to these two projects. Sustainability, responsibility, ecological commitment, solidarity… This common vision responds today more than ever to complex news, during an unprecedented and difficult year from all points of view. However, beyond the news, these commitments have shaped the DNA of ethical steps since the creation of the network in 1979.
The search for authenticity, ecology and sharing are implemented daily in each of the 45 centers of the network. This year, five éthic étapes centers across France will welcome the participants of the Sun Trip Tour, with warmth and a smile. Three of these centers once again affirm their sustainable commitment by proudly affixing the European eco-label!
This collaboration is the first of a long series, and the national network will be delighted to welcome many new participants, everywhere in France, during the next editions.
