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
The tour is a private tour, with maximum number of 6 tourists. In this way we reduce at minimum the impact on the environment by not using big buses. We use a car or a 8 seats minibus. We hardly use plastic for this kind of tours. We are working with small family guesthouses in the mountain village part of the program which promote eco tourism and they have in their rooms the instructions about how they can reduce the water consumption (eg. using towels) and they serve local food produce in the local communities (eg.milk, eggs, meat, cheese), where they are available. We do not stay at big hotels, in the cities, but only at small guesthouses . We eat in local restaurants or we buy food from the local stores for picnic lunches, as home made cheese, lard, sausages, tomatoes, etc. We limit the use of plastic bottles by providing reusable bottles, as much as we can and we are not working with the single use plastic. We inform our clients about the sustainable policy. Because it is a cultural tour, no wildlife involved. During the walk in the mountain villages we interact with the sheep and/or cows.

The Impacts of this Trip

In our multi day cultural tours we use the local resources: we stop at a local handicraft or to a museum or at a local guesthouse for cheese tasting. We visit the local sites using local guides.

Our tailor made programs help clients to better identify those areas that can offer awesome nature, cultural and rural culture experiences. Some of the sites are UNESCO World heritage.

Our tourists can participate at the current works in the villages (eg. cutting the grass, milking the cows or sheep), for the mountain village walk.

We inform the clients that it is important to know and respect a few elementary rules before visiting the areas of the Nationals Park. In this areas we have locals from the mountain villages which are struggling to preserve their traditions and their way of life (not so much help from the Romanian state). We inform them to keep down the noise level so both humans and wildlife can enjoy the balance of nature, to admire the flowers and if they wish to pick them to use only their photo camera. During our tours we use to make a stop at a local guesthouse which has a small farm for a cheese tasting and/or an eco-lunch with local products. They can visit the farm and/or to participate to the daily activities, as milking the animals or cutting the grass. In this way they have a perspective about the conditions of living in this areas and they understand how important is to respect their lifestyle.
