Responsible tourism: School trip activity holiday in Croatia

Daily transport will involve a combination of kayak, bicycle and foot far more suited to our goal of enjoying and preserving the beauty of Vis island. While kayaking we will make the students aware of their surrounding and provide them with suggestions of how to minimize potential negative impacts on the marine ecosystems of Croatia. Cycling and hiking allow the students to be amongst the fauna and flora while learning to respect the environment.

When visiting the school on the island, local teachers and tour operators will educate guest groups on how tourism can impact on the ecology of the region if not managed carefully. It will also be highlighted how tourism can have positive and negative effects on the local community.

Certain days may include a picnic in an isolated bay. Students will be actively involved in the process of carrying out waste and educated on the impact of waste on the environment. Other meals on the island, the students will be encouraged to try local dishes and learn about gourmet traditions of the island of Vis. There are a number of small, private olive and wine producing enterprises that are once again beginning to spring up on the island. We have developed links with such projects and can provide access for students to observe the traditional methods of agriculture that are being revived.

Dedication to the stimulation of the local economy extends to promoting employment opportunities where possible and this happens in terms of guiding, local restaurants and local accommodation providers for the visiting groups. Being able to participate and connect with the local culture provides a richer school trip experience. Accompanied by knowledgeable guides and a visit to the local school, guests are able to understand in depth about Croatian life, especially life on the island of Vis.
