PlanetWe believe that buying bottled water has detrimental impacts on the environment; we can make a conscience effort to reduce plastic waste by not buying bottled water. On this trip, you have access to drinking water in all the accommodation we stopover in. Clients who bring their own water bottles will be able to refill them daily, when out and about the local guide will be able to point out places where they can top up their water bottles.
We also have low carbon activities such as a walking tour round Sighisoara.
We are aware of the need to safeguard the best environmental practice in Romania including the ancient practice of periodically moving sheepfolds in the mountains. We are also aware of the threat to wildlife - that too many visitors can be a problem - our guides advise travellers how to respect fauna and flora.
The car used for traveling between locations has low CO2 emissions and uses little fuel. Also the itinerary is optimized so the number of kilometers driven is reduced.

PeopleBy staying at rural guesthouses you encourage the consumption of more of the locally produced goods rather than staying at a big hotel; this can include traditional pottery instead of modern dishes, local textiles used for decoration, wood sourced locally for furniture, floors or heating.
We encourage our guests do a little reading before coming to find out more about their host communities and the environment so that they would connect better with the locals. We provide suggestion on how best to support the local economies and communities, as well as the surrounding environment.
Being small group tours, these trips not only minimize the negative impact on the environment but also allow you to interact more easily with the locals, giving you the possibility to learn about culture and traditions straight from the source.
We are only using local drivers for transfers, local restaurants and small shops, we make daily contributions to the economy and the community.
In Bistrita, we are having dinner at the restaurant of the Hotel Dracula’s Castle, so we can understand better the life of Vlad Dracul.
