Slovenia hiking holiday in the Julian Alps

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

As this is a hiking trip, we will be mostly hiking and using our feet as transportation to visit the top highlights. In between, we will, however, use one shuttle that will help us transport all from place A to place B, as a public transportation still needs quite a few adjustments to be able to cater to the needs of specific itineraries. Nevertheless, when guests ask us, we do recommend low carbon transport and offer different options. Luckily, Slovenia is a small and safe country, meaning a lot of it can be discovered on foot or bike, which is considered a plus for active holiday seekers.

During our hikes, we only use already marked paths/trails and therefore try to preserve the environment as it is. Walking only on used paths helps to conserve flora, fauna, and wildlife. By limiting our presence in some areas, we also help to protect the environment against tourism exposure.

Also, our groups never exceed the number of 15 people. Consequently, we really try to minimize our impact on nature and leave behind nothing, but footprints.

We do, indeed, visit some so-called 'highlights' during our holiday, but we also stretch our itineraries to other specific areas, that are not considered very touristic, which gives them that extra added local value. That way, we always try to support the local economy in the community we visit, so we always eat at local restaurants, visit local markets, and help the community in any way we can.

Community

Working in tourism is also about sharing local culture and preserving local habits and traditions. During our tours, we visit smaller, unknown villages, which helps to promote sustainable tourism and help the local economy. Further on, we arrange businesses directly with local providers and suppliers, avoiding unnecessary intermediates and giving the money to those who really benefit.

For example, we have our usual transport partner who owns a smaller company, so we do not use big transportation companies but rather book with him, who provides exactly the vehicle that suits us best.

All our tours are guided by local guides, with passion for outdoors and nature and with certified licenses for various sports. We try to look for motivated individuals that care for the environment and sustainable travel. By doing so, we try to guarantee responsible travel, connecting travelers to locals and providing a unique experience for everyone. We offer our employees a fair wage and support them in various training programs that might deepen their knowledge in different tourism fields.
