Our office staff and local guides are highly conscientious when it comes to environmental responsibility.
We operate in several protected areas and work mainly in nature settings, which we see as a real privilege. We love our small – but rich in diversity – country and have enormous respect for the environment.
All of our guides operate a strict leave no trace policy, and they ensure that all guests follow this rule during our tours – not only in nature but everywhere we operate.
They can also give interesting personal views. We know that traveling in our small groups encourages friendly chats with local people and a closer approach to the communities.
One of the principles of responsible tourism is to promote mutual respect and deep knowledge of others and their lifestyles – and this why we love to travel!
We work to ensure that we, and our guests, behave in a manner that causes no harm to any living creatures or their habitats.
As a nature tourism company, we feel the responsibility to ensure that our holidays do not cause harm or any negative impact on the health and welfare of animals and their natural environment.
We believe in an ethically-minded appreciation of animals and strive to ensure that none are mistreated during our trips.
We promote and support local projects and organizations that have environmental protection as their goal.
The tours that involve the viewing or interaction with animals, like birdwatching, are led by local guides trained to ensure the well-being of all involved.
We are committed to promoting only ethical experiences and refusing any cruel tourism practices that compromise animal welfare, like visiting captive animal facilities.
We research intensively to find the most sustainable means of transport to access the areas where we develop our activities.
Our tours aim for responsible travellers, who appreciate the “live like a local” ethos, and we work very hard to fulfil their expectations.
Most of the tours take place in ancient paths in nature, crossing rural villas and hamlets, and we use small vehicles with local drivers to reach those sites.
From there, we travel happily on foot, or with a bike, undoubtedly the lowest impact ways of exploring.
Whenever possible, we use public transportation (local buses, trains, and metro lines) as a more sustainable alternative to private vehicles.
In our portfolio, we also offer rail and train travel – it is not only the most environmentally friendly way of journeying, but it is also a fantastic way to see the sights, contact people, and know the destination. It is a greener transport method and a more stimulating and authentic way to experience our country.
We strive to promote “plastic-free” tours and recommend vividly that our visitors bring reusable bottles to reduce single-use plastics.
Our guides also carry garbage bags to pick up any waste they find along the way – some clients join us spontaneously.
Our office has active policies for reducing, reuse, and recycle, and we continuously study new ways to make it greener and more efficient, like achieving the goal to be paper-free soon.
We are investing in tools to facilitate and make our tours more enjoyable and to meet this goal we developed an in-house app Routes & Maps, to assist the clients throughout their stay without paper material.
