Responsible tourism: Balkans multi activity holiday

Environment

Safety is our first concern: while we take pride in offering "off the beaten path" holidays, we do make sure to stick with routes we are 100% sure are safe, even for families with children. Our employees have helped map and lay out trails which we use today on Kolocep island. We believe sticking to these hiking trails is very important, as it keeps our guests safe, as well as preserves the environment and leaves it undisturbed.

We encourage our guests to recycle their waste and to reuse plastic bottles and bags. Anything that can't be recycled while on our trip we try to separate and recycle somewhere else.

On our trips we bike on paved roads only, walk and hike on existing paths and ask our guests not to feed, fish, hunt and disturb animals.

Our company strives to promote types of tourism where use of motor vehicles is minimal. We are proud of the beauties Croatia has to offer and of the fact that we were the first to combine them with activities and offer to public. We encourage you to travel on foot, by bike, kayak, canoe, raft or sailboat. Our motto is - take only pictures, leave only footprints.

Community

By booking this trip you bring much needed income to the people who are still recovering from the war-torn years, as this was the area severely affected by war. This trip ensures that the local people benefit as much as possible in the form of jobs (we employ local guides and drivers) and provision of accommodation (we use family owned hotels or home stays with local family). Even buying local products will support this country’s economy and help Croatia to stand on her feet again! We also use local transfer services, buy food from the small farms and work on developing responsible waste management by stimulating waste recycle.

By buying local products you are supporting this country’s economy and helping Croatia to stand on her feet again! We consider it our responsibility to lead efforts to maintain and preserve the integrity of this fledgling sector by petitioning the introduction of tighter controls over the use of the country’s natural resources.

As a company, we support the local community by building camps in partnership with local families, building bridges and accesses to the rivers. In order to preserve traventine barriers on Zrmanja River we have built wooden detour bridges. We also support an orphan bear shelter in Kutarevo.

The Korana Village has less than a dozen houses and it is situated on both sides of a small river of the same name, at the end of a dead-end road in Plitvice Lakes National Park, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Travel agencies or tour operators never showed interest in the place that cannot accommodate more than 20 tourists and whose road is too narrow for a tourist bus. Like in no other hotel room you have stayed in, these traditional houses are perched on the very edge of the river bank. Hear firsthand how this village has managed to preserve their tradition and rebuild all family houses after it has been torn down and burned in the war.

Our local guides are cooks and are famous for their delicious cuisine. We keep a full stock of supplies and stop frequently at local shops to load up on fresh food supplies to ensure our meals are always healthy and nutritive sufficient with a touch of tradition.
