We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
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.
PlanetDuring this trip, we spend time outdoors photographing landscapes and nature. Our guides always educate our guests about rules of conduct in national parks and other important nature areas.
Both Croatia and Bosnia have plenty of fresh water sources and the water is of excellent quality. We encourage our guests to use tap water to save environment from excessive plastics and to save some money. All our guests get reusable plastic water bottles so they can fill them any time.
Nature in both countries is still very well preserved although it is under constant pressure from development. While photographing we often pick up trash, educate our guests about nature, animals and plants and how it’s all connected.
To reduce the amount of driving we pick accommodation that is very near the places we photograph and use it as our base. We do not travel from place to place every single day but rather stay in the area for the duration of the workshop so our guests can get to know it better. This way there is also more time for photography itself and the air is cleaner. We only use modern diesel vehicles that energy efficient and comply to the strict standards of European Union.
We do not send out any printed brochures or itineraries. Everything is available online on our website and in PDF and we discourage our guests from printing it out. Also the invoice for this tour is issued electronically. It is our small contribution to use less paper.
PeopleWe only use established local eateries and restaurants that offer locally-produced, seasonal food, run by local people who know traditional recipes of the area best. Food is one of the most important parts of the travel and we educate our guest about local specialities, the background of the food they eat (where it comes from, why it is important, ingredients & recipes…).
During this trip we use family-run accommodation. Both at Una NP and Plitvice NP. This way our guests benefit from true hospitality and have a more authentic experience and the local community benefits from the money they spend – a fair trade. We work directly with the family so there is no middle man who would get most of the money. We care about our relationship and hope it will be a long-term partnership. Most of the places we use will also offer something more to our guests – like invitations to explore their wine cellar or in the right season our guests can join grape harvest or help feed the farm animals…
Only local photographers with intimate knowledge of the area guide this tour. Great guide/photography leader is of key importance for us. The right person can make or break the experience for our guests so we work only with the best guides and in off season we offer free training, study trips and education on different aspects (one of them is how to travel responsibly). Also our local photographers know the culture and where is allowed to photograph and where not.
