Description of Kuril Islands holiday, Russia
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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. Respecting the environment on The Kuril Islands is one of the highest priority, because of its pristine and fragile nature.
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 sustainability of their practices. Our clients are also asked to act as role models and to give example to Russian communities on hoe to live in respect to the environment.
We encourage our clients to limit waste produced on the tour by using reusable tea flasks, and reusable bags to collect litter. When camping, we make sure to leave no litter and any permanent traces behind.
We inform our travelers about protected areas they visit, including Kurilsky Nature Reserve, environmental issues, conservation efforts, restrictions and accepted behaviors. Travelers on this tour also visit Cape Stolbchaty, site of natural significance, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
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.
