Responsible tourism: Rhodes family activity holiday in Greece

Environment

Faithful to our responsible travel policy, the hotels that we choose to partner with in Rhodes have their own recycling policy and use renewable energy sources where possible. At the same time we inform all our guests during their arrival about how to be a responsible traveler and how to contribute in sustaining the local environment. In these policies we encourage the guests not to litter, to dispose of rubbish carefully and recycle where possible, use water and energy sparingly. Take short showers rather than baths, reuse towels and bed linen rather than having them replaced daily, turn down/off air-conditioning or heating when not required, turn off all lights and appliances when you leave your room.

As Rhodes is a very touristy area, the environment is really sensitive. All of our activities are low carbon ways to explore Rhodes: sailing, horse riding and scuba diving and we are trying to avoid activities with high carbon emissions like jeep safaris or jet skis. It is also worth mentioning that there are restrictions in places regarding the activities. There are specific licences that define where each activity will take place in order to protect more fragile areas from pollution.

Our company, based in Tripoli of Peloponnese-Greece operates tours all around Greece. As we are aware of the fact that all these trips will cause carbon emissions, we offer 5 Euros to the environment for each participant for offsetting them! This money is going to be used, in cooperation with the Tripoli's Forestry Office,Peloponnese-Greece, the Greek Trekking Club of Tripolis and the Tripolis Ecologist Club, for afforestation in the mountains of Peloponnese, that have been hit by great fires in the summer of 2007. We hope that our effort will push other companies, individuals or local authorities to contribute to this project too.

We as a company avoid using paper as much as possible, and we recycle the amounts of paper that we can’t avoid to use.

Community

When you choose our holidays, you are choosing a responsible holiday. One of the biggest concerns of our company is to ensure that tourism will not affect the area in an ecologically and culturally negative way, and also to make sure that the locals will mostly benefit from your travel. Especially on the island of Rhodes, where mass tourism is very developed and has had a socio-culturally negative impact - we feel we are one of the few companies that consider the local community In our operations.

Upon your arrival you will receive guidelines about being a responsible traveller and what you can do (or not do) to support the Rhodian community. We encourage you to respect the locals and their tradition by dressing and acting properly or enjoy the famous Greek nightlife with responsibility. In addition we encourage you to buy local products from local producers and choose the local shops. For our part, we try to support the local community as much as possible. The water park, the horse-riding centre, the dive centre, the watersports center and the sailing excursions are all locally-owned and guided by locals.

Finally, our company which is the organizer and operator of this package ensures not only that economical benefit remains with the local community but also that you culturally benefit too. On this trip, you will visit so many different places and you will be surrounded by locals, experiencing the Greek way of living. We partner with hotels owned by locals and the focus is on locally-owned operations for the entire tour, which we feel nets benefits both ways. As mentioned before, activities are led by local guides who are a font of knowledge on the area, helping you to get the most out of your holiday.
