Responsible tourism: Photography holiday in Malta

Environment

In keeping with our Responsible Travel policy we have carefully selected the "green" options when it comes to your accommodation, transport and leisure activities. Combining these three elements will ensure an eco-friendly visit and stay on the islands as well as keep the Carbon Footprint as low as possible!

We do not print brochures, keeping customers informed electronically via email, and our website. We encourage clients to remit their payments electronically via PayPal or by bank transfer.

We use local transport companies and their drivers for airport transfers and where possible we group guests together, so as not to have unnecessary car journeys to and from the airport for individual passengers, polluting the atmosphere.

We liaise with local tourist offices and employ knowledgeable local guides to take our groups on excursions to ensure our clients benefit from specialist local knowledge. We believe that we have made valuable economic contributions to local rural businesses, bringing them repeat business, and it is our aim to continue to do so.

Community

On our trips we always take time to visit and support local museums, art galleries and any local initiatives that may be happening in the villages that we visit.

We visit a typical Maltese villages experience local culture and famous for its fishing culture and colourful boats called "Luzzu". Here our guests will explore popular sites and take a boat trip to the Blue Grotto on a traditional Maltese boat. We will be meeting Maltese fisherman also known as artisanal fisherman as they use environmentally friendly methods for fishing (low impact fishing) for example tuna is caught with long lines and not with nets.

Maltese olive oil dates back as far as the Roman era, where areas were set aside for agricultural activities, particularly the pressing and processing of olive oil. We will be welcomed to Sam’s home, who has decided to dedicate his life to maintaining the tradition of Maltese olive oil, starting his own olive garden. He was the first Maltese person to buy a functional olive press. He has revived the traditional cold press olive oil making which according to historical records was very prevalent during the times of the Romans. Through DNA testing he has traced a species of olive tree which was present in Malta hundreds of years ago.

People who want to make oil from their own olive trees visit Sam on a yearly basis while he continues to work hard to keep the tradition alive. Our activity will support the studies and cultivation of his activity.

During this experience you can relax and enjoy the delicious olive oil, with crispy local bread, while being filled in with interesting facts about the cultivation of olive trees and olive pressing. We support this project through our visit and invariably guests buy a bottle of this prestigious olive oil to take back home.
