Multi activity holiday in Greece

Responsible travel: Multi activity holiday in Greece

Environment

All the activities included in this trip, are environment-friendly. We prefer using the power of the wind and the power of the water rather the power of gas and that’s why we don’t offer activities like jeeps or jet-skis. We are also owners of the small city hotel that you will stay during your holidays here where we recycle paper, glass, plastic and metal. At your arrival here you will be given a Travellers Code of Conduct, where you will get informed about how to apply maximum responsibility during your holidays concerning environmental and socio-cultural factors.

As we are aware of the fact that your trip here will cause carbon emissions, we offer 1% of the price to the environment for offsetting them! This money is going to be used, in cooperation with the local Forestry Office, the Greek Trekking Club of Tripolis and the Tripolis Ecologist Club, for afforestation in our mountains, 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.

Community

Choosing our holidays, you choose responsible holidays. As Mr Panagiotopoulos, founder and president of our company, was born and raised here, one of his biggest concerns is to secure that tourism will not affect negatively our area in ecological and socio-cultural way, and also that the locals will mostly benefit from your travel. Our company which is the organizer and operator of this package is local-based and all our guides, drivers, activity specialists and employees are locals too, ensuring not only the economical benefit of our area but also your cultural benefit.

In this trip, you will visit so many different places and you will always be surrounded by locals, experiencing the Greek way of living. But what is most important for us, is that your presence here gives us a strong negotiation card for pressing the local authorities for the development of our area, such us constructing cycling streets in our city or finance and organize better our archaeological museums and sites.

The story of the provider of Multi activity holiday in Greece

Running activity holidays may seem an unlikely profession for a qualified engineer but it was actually quite a natural progression for me. I was part of the team constructing our family hotel in Tripoli and once we were up and running I took over as general manager and studied for my Tourism Management qualifications. As the current crisis took hold in Greece we found less and less local holidaymakers coming to our beautiful region and keen to encourage visitors from overseas and develop tourism in the area I began the tours. We are lucky to have avoided mass tourism here and we don’t wish to destroy what we have, we wish to share the beauty of our nature and local sites with others. What we have here is pure and we want to maintain that!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Overall the holiday was very memorable & exciting, however, rafting was the best as we could take even a seven year old. Nafplio was just an amazing place to be, though Tripoli not a touristic city but we had our maximum excitment there due to the activities arranged between the most scenic place by the package provider.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Even month of June is very hot and you will need tons of sunscreen to avoid heat burns.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


We were a group of 8 adults and most would have agreed the rafting was brilliant, although in fairness all the activities were excellent, well organised and suited to all abilities. Our guide Christos was so helpful and professional. And the picnic by the river was really enjoyable, what's not to like about cold beers, good food and company.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


If you and your friends love different activities on a holiday then get packing. This holiday was value for money as everything was catered for and all we did was step on a bus in the morning. The itinerary was also adaptable to our needs. If you go bring snorkelling gear, a rash vest or wet suit type top (for the rafting) and old runners for the water. We booked an extra night in Athens so we could ramble the streets and see more of the city. Our guide Christos helped us to book the hotel which was very central and next to the Acropolis.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes definitely, we were not in a tourist area for the first 5 days of the holiday which gave us a chance to benefit local people by eating/drinking out, shopping etc. No menus in English here, all local food and people very friendly. By holidaying in this area we found out that we were contributing to the replanting of a local forest that was previously burnt down.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent, we all really enjoyed the different activities. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back, just need to start saving!!!
