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.

We use public transport where we can – on this trip you will use trams, cable cars, trains and small buses. This minimises the impact on the environment and saves travellers money. This money can then be spent in other local places, such as a traditional restaurant, which benefits the local economy even more.

During the trip, we’ll be exploring the Tatra National Park (TANAP). Their aim is to protect the park’s nature, flora and fauna, and by being here, we’re helping them do exactly that. We’ll be careful to adhere to the rules of the park, walk only on trails, and leave wildlife and plants undisturbed.
Guided adventures are small groups by their very nature (it’ll only be you and a few others at most). This approach is better for the environment and means you get to see more because you can get off the beaten track. Our walking guides will give advice on how to travel responsibly in order not to do any damage to the local environment, and leave everything just as we found it.

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.

The Impacts of this Trip

We’re a local, family-run business, and over the years we’ve built fantastic relationships with communities throughout Slovakia. That means we can provide the opportunity to connect with, and experience, local customs, culture and way of life first-hand. On this short break, for example, we’ve included a trek to many different mountain huts, including the oldest hut in the Tatra Mountains, Rainerova. Mountain huts have been part of the fabric of the Tatras for years; they’re traditional, welcoming and often have a historic story to tell. By visiting, we help to preserve their heritage for future generations.
As a company, we don’t believe bigger is better – our ethos is to organise tours for small groups and individuals so people can experience adventure responsibly.

During this tour, we will only use local services and – throughout the trip – we’ll be staying in locally-owned accommodation, which supports small Slovakian businesses. We also recommend eating in local restaurants and mountain huts, so you can sample delicious local cuisine. We’ll make recommendations in your self-guided booklet so you know the best ones to choose.
