Responsible tourism: Russia holiday, St Petersburg and Karelia

Environment

All our activities are run with respect to the environment, making sure that the volume of participants and type of tourism we offer doesn’t have any negative impact on local conditions and infrastructure.
Taking into consideration that sustainable development is still a new topic in Russia, we educate our partners and suppliers about environmental responsibility of their operations and we encourage them to improve sustainability of their practices. Our clients are also asked to act as role models and to give example to Russian communities on hoe to live in respect to the environment.
We give priority to public transport and optimise the itinerary to reduce the carbon footprint. From St Petersburg to Karelia, tourists travel by train. In the cities, we walking/biking tours are offered.
We reduce carbon footprint of our tours by offering our clients a compensation scheme, thanks to our cooperation with Atmosfair, encouraged especially when booking flights through us.
We are keen on recycling, energy-saving solutions and minimising litter, water and atmospheric pollution both in our office and at any specific tourism activity we provide. We recycle waste produced at our office and bring it to special collection points.
We encourage our clients to limit waste produced on the tour by using reusable tea flasks, and reusable bags to collect litter.
We inform our travelers about protected areas they visit, including Vodlozero and
Kalevala National Park, restrictions and accepted behaviors.
