Responsible tourism: Messinia cycling holiday in Greece


Taking care of the natural environment is something that we really concern ourselves with. Not only because a pure and beautiful environment is necessary for the basis of a great cycling tour, but mainly because we live here and our children do too.

There are several things that we do to apply our policy about the protection of the environment. All our tours are small group tours, so there is more control of the environmental impact. We inform all the clients about guidelines that they should follow to protect the environment. All the hotels we chose are small family businesses that have minimum effect on the environment, not only because of their size but also because of their policies.

Finally, we understand that no matter what we do, the footprint of the traveller will be left. This is why we organize a reforestation project offering 5 euros per person and accepting donations to plant trees in areas that were hit by great fires during the summer.


Although this specific part of Greece, Messinia, is popular to tourists and well developed, it is still unharmed and beautiful. The community has managed to maintain all the original characteristics that differentiate it from others, something that you will also come to understand when you are here.

In terms of our responsible tourism policy, we organise all our tours in a way that the locals benefit as much as possible from the tourists. We are locals, all our employees are locals, and all our cooperators like the hotels that we choose are locals too. All these people really need your presence here but on the other hand in this way you will also come as close as possible to the Messinian culture.

We work hard on the responsible development of tourism in the area. Our plans are to convince the state to create official cycling paths in and between the towns, which everyone will be able to use and will improve the quality of life for the locals too.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Visiting Koroni, Methoni and Pylos - beautiful, historic seaside towns.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You need to be pretty fit as there is a lot of uphill cycling! The last two days were fairly easy going as the coastal road was flat, but the first few days were very hilly and one day especially, we cycled up a mountain and down the other side.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Cycling is always environmentally friendly and the local people seemed pleased to cater for tourists in what is a very difficult economic climate.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I would rate the holiday with 3 or 4 stars. I would only recommend the holiday to a very fit friend!
