Responsible tourism: Azerbaijan holiday, tailor made
Our trips endeavour to provide clients with as much exposure to the beauty and culture of the countries we visit as we can, whilst we are aware that this can sometimes have a negative impact on the host country, we try our best to keep this impact to a minimum. In this tour we opt for city walking tours and there will be opportunities to enjoy walks in the Caucasus Mountains allowing you to take in the tranquility and discover the region confidently knowing that you are having minimal impact on the environment and local flora and fauna.
In addition, when you take one of our trips, we make a contribution to “Carbon Clear” – an organisation devoted to ‘offsetting’ or ‘neutralising’ harmful greenhouse gas emissions such as those caused by your flight. They work with hundreds of organisations to measure their carbon footprint, in an effort to then reduce their carbon emissions. This is done by funding projects across the world that will reduce greenhouse gases on your behalf such as through sustainable energy or rainforest restoration.
All our tours employ the services of local guides and drivers, stay in locally owned hotels and guesthouses – often staying in our guides villages and homes, which again diverts important funds directly into the area. On this trip we eat in a number of locally owned restaurants, which is a great opportunity to try out the local cuisine. The wonderful thing about this kind of interactive tourism is that everyone gains – the locals financially, and our clients with the unique experience and social interaction.
We understand that buying souvenirs can often be a nice memory of your trip and in Azerbaijan, like with many of our tours, there are plenty of opportunities to purchase traditional handicrafts from local markets. Our stop at Lahij village provides a great opportunity to discover and purchase a variety of traditional Azerbaijani handicrafts. Through using local markets and shops we can be sure that all income is going directly to the craftsmen and women and back into sustaining the local economy.
