Responsible tourism: Armenia tailor made holiday
Responsible travel and sustainable tourism are fundamental ideas that we have been committed to since our birth. It is our strong belief that these words should not be simply ‘tagged on’ to dossiers and websites but should be at the very core of each trip, and our adventures are therefore designed with the local people, culture and eco-system in mind. We believe that a successful trip not only delivers a unique and unsurpassable journey for our clients, but that it also benefits the peoples whose lands we are privileged to visit.
With beautiful valleys and mountainous areas to explore as well as historical monasteries to discover, there is ample opportunity for clients to discover areas of Armenia on foot. By taking a city walking tour or a stroll thorough the stunning green landscapes on this itinerary, clients can not only better appreciate Armenia's natural surroundings but also know that they are reducing the harmful impact of using vehicles in some of these more peaceful and remote areas.
When you take one of our trips, we make a contribution to “Carbon Clear” – an organisation who work with hundreds of organisations to measure their carbon footprint and reduce their carbon emissions.
By incorporating home-stays, locally owned hotels, restaurants and the services of guides into our itineraries, we ensure that money goes directly into the local economy and local communities benefit from tourism.
On all our trips we endeavour to use local accommodation that will benefit the communities we visit and this Armenia trip is no different. Whilst all our tailor-made trips can be modified to suit our clients’ preferences, the accommodation we offer on this trip is all small locally owned boutique hotels and guesthouses meaning that all revenue goes directly into the pockets of the local communities. Some of the accommodation options are located near to local craft workshops where our clients are encouraged to purchase their souvenirs and support the local trades.
What's more, on this trip we recommend staying at the Villa Delenda in Yeravan where a portion of the hotel’s income is used to support an art school and a craft centre in neighbouring towns for families who were affected by the 1988 earthquake. Through ventures like this we can be sure that our tourism is direct benefit and will have a lasting positive impact on the communities we visit.
