As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAll our activities are run with respect to the environment, making sure that the volume of participants and type of tourism we offer doesn’t have any negative impact on local conditions and infrastructure.
We aim to work with suppliers, communities and organisations, which are committed to environmental protection. Additionally, taking into consideration that sustainable development is still a new topic in Russia, we educate our partners and suppliers about environmental responsibility of their operations and we encourage them to improve their practices in this sphere.
We give priority to public transport (where available) and optimise the itinerary to reduce the carbon footprint.
Our “print on demand rule” means we prefer digital content management over traditional paper and we choose to print information only according to the needs of our stakeholders.
We are keen on recycling, energy-saving solutions and minimising litter, water and atmospheric pollution both in our office and at any specific tourism activity we provide. We recycle waste produced at our office and bring it to special collection points. We encourage our clients to limit waste produced on the tours by using reusable tea flasks,
We inform our clients about natural environment and how to behave there, especially if they enter protected areas like national parks and nature reserves.

This tour is exclusively operated by local suppliers, local service providers and local guides.
We place our guests at the heart of the local communities by using small and medium locally run and locally owned accommodation providers.
We give our clients the chance to interact with real Russian people on the tours, and on the train – by placing them in the 3rd or 2nd class compartments, which are also commonly used by local travelers.
We organize informal language classes, giving our tourists the chance to learn the basic Russian phrases, which will help them to interact with locals more freely.
We provide our customers with quality and adequate information on destinations they visit, to increase understanding of local culture, its problems and facilitate cultural exchange with local people.
We educate our customers by providing them guidelines on how to travel responsibly. Information is delivered in the pre-arrival kit, available on our tours and on our website.
We encourage our staff to act sustainably and train them on the most efficient ways to do it.
We actively participate in discussions about sustainability and responsible tourism, providing feedback and sharing our experiences.
