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
This tour by definition is environmentally friendly. All the itinerary is based on stops to bio and agrotourism sites, that have as primary goal the preservation of the nature and landscape of the area around them. All this tour is based on supplies produced locally, so no need of transport for food and drinks.

Everything supplied to the guests is produced in the site and with no use of chemicals and pesticides.

All the sites chosen by us are members of the Slow Food Initiative - they all try to cook dishes in old/traditional way and to preserve tastes that are in the way of distinguish in the day to day life.

These centers also are struggling to be self efficient with energy by adopting solar, wind or water electrical power producing tools. Albania has around 300 sunny days per year - perpetual wind in some of the hills and mountain passes where remote guesthouses are located and many small highland water sources where small turbines can be installed.

The Impacts of this Trip

This tour is about regional gastronomy and wine, but is not strictly limited to this. All products that are offered during the meals, can also be bought in bigger quantities such as; cheese, honey, different jams mainly from wild fruits, mountain tea, olive oil and even the local drink raki. The purchase of these home made products adds value to these small economies. We support these local economies by providing labels and graphic design help to boost their marketing in the off-season.

The local creatives are also able to create a portfolio of handmade textiles from natural material like wool or plants. Some of them are advancing into more complicated products like blouses, shawls, caps, socs, guants, with traditional or modern designs. Small carpets are the most requested.

We are promoting all these products at the beginning of the tours and the majority of the guests agree that buying would be another support for the communities.
