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
Small-group tours like ours are better for the environment and, because there’ll only be you and a few others at most, they give you a chance 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. During the trip, we will visit the Tatra National Park (TANAP). Their aim is to protect the park’s nature, flora and fauna, and by being here, we are helping in this mission by making sure we adhere to the rules of the park, walk only on trails, and leave wildlife and plants undisturbed.

We use public transport where we can – for example you’ll use things like 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, thus benefitting the local economy even more.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

During this tour, we will only use local services and, throughout the trip, we will stay 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 will make recommendations in your self-guided booklet so you know the best ones to choose. Our company ethos is to organise tours for small groups and individuals so people can experience adventure responsibly.

As a local, family-run business, we have built fantastic relationships with communities throughout Slovakia, and can provide the opportunity to connect with, and experience, local customs, culture and way of life first-hand. On this holiday for example, we’ve also 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.
