PlanetCare of the environment is one of our main concerns; we inherited the unspoiled nature as we want our descendants to enjoy unspoiled nature as we do today. We do our best so that our guests can enjoy unspoiled nature.
We respect the standards of responsible tourism. To decrease the impact to the environment our adventure base re-cycles paper and glass and is also attached to a local biological waste water filter. We use saving light bulbs. We use organic food in a great part. A state agency for clean production has developed a project of waste and energy management for our apartment building. We keep to the guidelines prescribed in the project to minimize the impact on the environment.
Our Adventure base and the tourist board continuously organize cleaning of the rivers, and local coastline. In these activities we include our partners, school children, fishing club, firemen, and the local residents. They educate children in elementary school on the importance of saving the environment. Every year together with our partners we organize cleaning action for the canyoning, trekking and biking paths.
While in nature with our guests our guides take special care not to spoil the pure nature. Besides the professional training our guides are trained to educate the guests on responsible tourism in the local area as well as brief them before every trip to nature. We limit the number of guests on our programs.
PeopleWe offer employment and jobs to the local people and open possibilities for many small entrepreneurs. We contributed to employment of young people in the tourism sector as well as engage them in sports and help minimize the trend of them leaving to the big cities.
Exchange of cultural heritage enriches us and our guests for new experiences. We treat our guests as friends. The group remains in contact with us and among themselves after they leave. Laughter and friendship are traits of our program. Do make the time to read our reviews!
Our company has a huge impact on the local community. Our guests spend and buy in a way that helps the local economy. The restaurant we use nurture authentic gastronomy and uses small local producers for its suppliers (meat, vegetables, fruit, and food cereals) with special emphasis on naturally grown and native sorts. This way we foster authentic food production and offer healthy food.
All of our Adventure programs include local suppliers (guides, skippers, drivers and local guest houses services, museums, and an archaeological sight) this way we encourage local people to pursue tourism as a new possibility for them.
