Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Winter family holiday in Slovakia, High Tatras

Environment

All of our activities have a common goal – to minimise the negative impact of tourism on the environment and provide a professional service, with the highest level of respect for the client, and also for nature, monuments and communities.

We organise tours for small groups who can experience a real adventure first-hand, which in mass tourism and large groups is simply not possible.

With such a purposeful connection with the local communities that you will visit, we are able to provide more pleasant experiences to understand the local customs, way of life and culture.

We prefer family run hotels to big international chains, and we can organise lunch with a local family or farm and school visits, the opportunity to buy traditional products from local craftsmen and other activities, all with the goal of creating a close connection with the local community. By using local services – in sports, culture, entertainment and cuisine – you will also be making a valuable contribution to the local economy.

Nature is a tremendous asset to us all, so we strive to maintain the diversity of local ecosystems and the beauty of nature for future generations. We take care to ensure that our itineraries do not interfere negatively with the environment in protected areas, national parks and buildings of historical significance. During our stays we take care to avoid damaging nature, such as by harming plants and animals, or littering. We also take care to maintain the natural tranquillity of the areas we visit.

Community

Accommodation
To support the locals in every region that our holidays are based, or go through, we make sure that the accommodation used is family run hotels and pensions rather than international hotel chains. This way we support local, small hoteliers that are reliant on their family’s income from tourism.

Local Staff
Where possible we like to employ local guides to lead our groups. By adopting this approach travellers get the best possible leader with expert local knowledge and it indirectly supports the local economy. This is our contribution to the fight against high unemployment, which in Slovakia is now over 14% due to economic recession.

Shopping
Some kind of shopping usually makes a part of every holiday. This might be food, presents for your loved ones or just perhaps a small souvenir for yourself. To support the local economy and small businesses we support shopping at family run shops and local markets rather than big supermarkets. We inform travellers where and why to buy locally produced goods such as souvenirs, crafts, local traditional specialities and any other products that are available in the region and how beneficial it is to support the local communities by buying their homemade products (wine, cheese, honey, wooden toys, pottery... ).

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


Wow, what a question, everything was great! The dogsledding was a highlight, the thermal pools was most enjoyable, the Zeleno Pleso hut was very special, the setting was out of this world, I thought I was dreaming! And to learn more about the Slovakian culture was also great!

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


Bring very warm clothes! We are from Africa so for us it was very cold. And make sure that you have some level of fitness, especially for the hike to the hut. We did the up one day and the down the next. To do it in one day would have been too tough for us.

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


For sure! All the activities were hosted by local people and our environmental impact was almost nothing.

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


It was wonderful.Our guide Dana was the best! She was so friendly and helpful. She went way out of her way to make our trip a memorable one! We couldnt have asked for a better guide! The drivers were also so friendly, on time and helpful. Petr was amazing too. He was so caring and made sure that he organised the best for us. Thank you thank you!!

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


The whole thing was excellent. My children loved learning to ski and the dog sledding, but I think my favorite was the winter walk on New Years day.

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


Snow would probably be better during the February Half term - but if you want to book at Christmas it is still fantastic, you just might need to be more flexible.

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


Slovakia is a fantastic destination, but it is not as well marketed as other countries. I feel that our visit supported our guide and driver in specific and the local economy in general.

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


Excellent trip for active families.
