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.
PlanetWe organize cleaning of the beaches and underwater areas in our community. Since we are located on the open sea, we have strong winter winds which bring us all sorts of garbage. Every spring, volunteers are more than welcome to help us keep our beaches and underwater clean. Every year, with the support of the town of Vis, we collect more than 500 kilos of garbage on 5 different beaches in the Rukavac area. In this way, we help our island to stay clean on the land and underwater. Island Vis is one of the cleanest islands in the middle Mediterranean area. Besides cleaning, we are trying to recycle all our waste especially our food leftovers by transforming them into compost for fertilizing our vegetables in our garden and olive yard. We are one of the households in the community who owns our gardens which provides and ensures all of the seasonal vegetables not only for our guests but for our own family!
PeopleWe support wildlife in our community by donating 1% of each booking to Blue World - researching dolphin organization. We have more than 400 dolphins in the area around the island of Vis, and the Blue world organization tracks them every day. It's almost impossible to spend a day at sea without seeing dolphins, especially in springtime when the sea traffic is quieter than in summer. It's quite an experience to see wild dolphins swim around you, and we are aware of how much they mean for marine life.
We also plant our own vegetables in a completely "eco" way. Our vegetables don't contain a single drop of pesticide, just water, and sun. In our vineyards, it is the same situation, and the eco brand on every bottle is evidence of hard work. Our guests are welcome to join in with watering and harvesting the grapes and vegetables every year, allowing them to see how we prepare this crop.
