PlanetOne of our main priorities is reducing the plastic consumption on our trip. We have reusable water bottles, to avoid buying plastic water bottles along the way.
We follow the rule leave no trace. We take our trash with us, trying not to stray from to path in order to protect the environment. When we visit national parks, swamps, forests, we are guests, so we should act with respect.
Other important thing would be avoiding unnecessary transport. If there is a chance to reach a destination by walk, we always recommend it to our travellers. We are always trying to include as much as possible walking tours to avoid the pollution (especially at the old town, where the traffic is always unpredictable). Also, we strongly believe that this way is much better to get to know the town. In case there is no chance to avoid car using, we always recommend to try public transport.
PeopleWe work with local guides. When visiting each country, we try and introduce our travellers to the local crafters, who are willing to share their stories about the culture and history of the Baltic countries.
We know that running small business demands a lot of time and energy, thats why we always try to support locals. Our guests have an opportunity to check all locally run small boutiques.
We seek to show the best Baltic countries and share our personal experience with the travellers. We treat our suppliers fairly and we are really proud that we have built a professional working relationship.
