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 walking trip combines exploring the urban areas of Zagreb, Trogir and Split with the oldest National Parks in Croatia, Plitvice and Paklenica. Plitvice Lakes National Park is has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. There are several restriction in place to converse the natural beauty which our leaders fully brief the customers on. These include no swimming in the turquoise lakes, keeping to designated paths to protect the flora and not to leave food for animals.
We encourage all customers to take a reusable water bottle with them when travelling which helps to reduce the number of plastic bottles provided and used locally. Along the trails we take on this trip there are fresh water springs and water fountains to re fill your reusable bottle.
As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.
PeopleThis trip enables us to see a lot of Croatia in a week, learning about its culture and history along the way. We use a local tour leader who have lived in Croatia all their lives and are passionate about their country and showcasing its natural beauty. Alongside the leader we employ local hiking guides in the parks we visit. This provides both employment opportunities and a unique insight to these areas.
We eat in local restaurants and during the day the group hikes in Paklenica National Park there is an opportunity to enjoy a traditional meal in a local house. They will see how the bell-shaped Peka is used to bake meat, fish and vegetables to perfection!
As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
