Responsible travel: Multi activity holiday in Greece
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 thats why we dont 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.
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.
