Responsible tourism: Snowshoeing holiday in Kosovo, Albania & Montenegro

Environment

This tour crosses 3 countries and we try to make this trip as authentic as possible. The accommodation we have chosen is locally run. So we are using small hotels, guesthouses and huts build and owned by locals. The same can be said for our guides. We are using local guides who know very well the area and have worked with us for years. In this way we ensure a continual financial support for them and their families. We use as well local transport to support us which is sourced from the areas where we will ski. We continually work with the local owner of hotels, guesthouses and tea houses to preserve the authentic ways of living and building in the specific areas we visit. In most of our tours we keep waste to a minimum. For example we make sure our picnic lunches are wrapped in paper bags which are degradable. Each guest as well is encouraged not to waste food but to carry enough just for their personal need.

Community

Recently the Albanian Government decided to issue law which prohibits cutting down trees and helping in this way by slowing down the gradual deforestation of Albania. This law will be in place from 2016 until 2026. This is good news since in Albania and the border zone with Kosovo and Montenegro there will be a great chance to access the back country and the pristine nature without encountering contamination or deforestation of any kind. In time we will witness a growth in the animal population which in itself will contribute to a much richer ecosystem to be enjoyed by everyone.
A Fair deal.
Many times we decide with out groups on our free time to pay a visit to the house of our local guides. The local culture is such that they like when they invite guests in their homes. During these encounters the groups has the chance to know our guides in a more intimate way. Of course the laughter goes on and on as the rakia is poured on after the other :).
