Description of Istria family cycling holiday, Croatia
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.
PlanetTourism is the world's fastest growing industry. Traveling to far flung places gives us a wonderful opportunity to experience cultures that are so different from our own. But with the wondrous joy of travel comes the responsibility of ensuring that we do not adversely affect those countries that we visit. In a nutshell, Responsible Travel is about ensuring that you, as travelers, and we, as a promoter of travel:
-respect the local culture
-do not inadvertently introduce new social ills and
-promote & practice environmental responsibility in the places that we visit.
That way, you enjoy a unique and memorable experience as well as authentic cross-cultural exchange and our local resources, cultures and customs are protected.
Our environmental policy:
We recycle all our waste paper.
Our correspondence and promotion is carried out via the internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper used for our activities.
We use established, locally-owned and run accommodation wherever possible and aim to leave sites in better condition than we find them.
Our vehicle fleet is managed to minimize environmental impact and cars have better engines and using less fuels.
Our group sizes are small, helping minimize cultural and environmental impact.
We monitor our impact, and where necessary alter our programs accordingly especially in transfers we are using for our clients.
We always abide by site-specific guidelines pertaining to flora and fauna.
On this family cycling trip we are offering our clients breaks in local wineries and restaurants with fresh local food . This helps small family owned producers.
On our day trip we are encouraging our clients to use tap water from all restaurants and hotels instead of bottled water.
On sea kayak trip our guides are paying attention on human impact to local fauna., especially to the sea urchins at break points.
PeopleAll our staff are locally employed and all our guides ensure a more authentic experience for travelers, as well as sensitivity to local customs and culture. Guides are part of local sports clubs and outside of their jobs as guides are active in their free time, so active tourism is part of their lifestyle.
On our biking and hiking trips we are helping the local community with the marking bike trails and hiking paths to make more secure trips. Also all our guides have the mission to take the garbage where ever they see it (on the sea, river, mountain...). We also involve local communities in remote areas that we travel to.
Our accommodation is mostly provided in small hotels, guest houses or apartments. On all our tours we use local produce and provide local-style meals, and we encourage our guests to try local dishes and delicacies such as oysters in Ston area. We are organizing wine tasting in local wine cellars ruled by local families such as Miloš winery on Pelješac.That way we support local economy and small business.
On this family tour our job is not just to provide an outdoor experience, we are trying to enrich our clients with historical and local knowlege starting from medieval towns of Grožnjan and Motovun to Pearl of adriatic Rovinj.There are centuries of history under influence of ancient Romans, Venicans...where local architecture and way of living formed the whole region.
We are encouring our clients to stop and see ornithological reserve of Palud nearby Rovinj.
