No Snow?
The quality of the natural snow is normally very high in the Tatra Mountains, not icy, but nice powdery snow. The main snowfall is usually during January and February and this is the time when we run most of our winter activity holidays. If there is not enough natural snow and the conditions are not good, we always have "no snow" activities on offer. This is usually winter walking, visiting caves, castles, or even relaxing in outdoor thermal pools.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
All of our activities have a common goal – to minimise the negative impact of tourism on the environment and provide a professional service, with the highest level of respect for the client, and also for nature, monuments and communities.

We organise tours for small groups who can experience a real adventure first-hand, which in mass tourism and large groups is simply not possible.

With such a purposeful connection with the local communities that you will visit, we are able to provide more pleasant experiences to understand the local customs, way of life and culture.

We prefer family run hotels to big international chains, and we can organise lunch with a local family or farm and school visits, the opportunity to buy traditional products from local craftsmen and other activities, all with the goal of creating a close connection with the local community. By using local services – in sports, culture, entertainment and cuisine – you will also be making a valuable contribution to the local economy.

Nature is a tremendous asset to us all, so we strive to maintain the diversity of local ecosystems and the beauty of nature for future generations. We take care to ensure that our itineraries do not interfere negatively with the environment in protected areas, national parks and buildings of historical significance. During our stays we take care to avoid damaging nature, such as by harming plants and animals, or littering. We also take care to maintain the natural tranquillity of the areas we visit.

We recommend restaurants that use mainly locally produced or grown food. We support customers who require vegetarian and low dairy foods, which reduce CO2 emissions. Plus, travelling by train forms a key part of reducing CO2 emissions.

The Impacts of this Trip

Accommodation
To support the locals in every region that our holidays are based, or go through, we make sure that the accommodation used is family run hotels and pensions rather than international hotel chains. This way we support local, small hoteliers that are reliant on their family’s income from tourism.

Local Staff
Where possible we like to employ local guides to lead our groups. By adopting this approach travellers get the best possible leader with expert local knowledge and it indirectly supports the local economy.

Shopping
Some kind of shopping usually makes a part of every holiday. This might be food, presents for your loved ones or just perhaps a small souvenir for yourself. To support the local economy and small businesses we support shopping at family run shops and local markets rather than big supermarkets. We inform travellers where and why to buy locally produced goods such as souvenirs, crafts, local traditional specialities and any other products that are available in the region and how beneficial it is to support the local communities by buying their homemade products (wine, cheese, honey, wooden toys, pottery... ).
