As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis tour is based entirely on horse riding, beside the drives from and to the airport. By definition is all out of the path and zero emission on carbon dioxide.
Everyday will be a well designed itinerary, so that the guests can get breathtaking landscapes, meet locals and the horses have optimal, not overburden path and weight.
The local lady that had this idea and that started only with two horses needs all the support so that the example be spread. This way will have more and more travelers not using cars and motorbikes, but horses and mules, who beside being friendly to the environment - will be a sustainable revenue for their local owners.
We instruct and supply our guests with trash sacs. They will not only use recycled bottles supplied by us, but will gather together with the guides, any plastic or can remnant encountered during the path itinerary and bring it to the deposit place in the next stop.
The guides too are very well aware of the handling of after picnic lunch situation.
PeopleEvery accommodation during this tour is located in villages with no previous experience of tourism. They are instructed and getting used with the idea of the open house.
We are working hard with Cristina, and other locals to create new paths for horse riding experiences. And we are working also with the open house idea owners so that more and more of them can be included in our itineraries - not only for horse riding, but hiking, running trail, mountain-bike tours.
It is obvious that the locals will benefit from multiple effect impact. They will supply food which is prepared by home made products. They can sell handmade products. This tour will take place in remote areas and that they might help families with limited living resources.
Young local people have the opportunity to become guides.
