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.
To all our clients we provide guidelines about how to show maximum responsibility and respect the area. At the same time we organize a reforestation project and we donate 5 euros for each participant of the tour to plant trees in areas hit by the fires of the summer. We also ask clients to donate any amount they can afford for the same project.
There is the option of shared local transport upon arrival and departure so as to reduce CO2 emissions
There is human powered transport,as the tour is a cycling tour for 7 days
ENVIRONMENT AND WILDLIFE
As tourism affects the environment in many ways such as increasing the air, litter & sewage pollution, natural habitat loss and even endanger many animal species, we, as tourism personnel and hoteliers try our best to sustain the environment as much as possible.
On this tour you will cycle through an area, becoming aware of its environmental sensitivity. Famous Sparta, the amazing beach of Elafonissos and the tremendous medieval town of Monemvassia all rely on environmental cleanliness and purity to preserve their beauty and uniqueness.
We believe that it is a matter of high importance to preserve what we have and not take advantage of it by any cost. We have adopted a sustainable tourism policy to protect the environment and the society.
The area is picturesque and has its own unique social characteristics. The local community needs to be supported but also wants to prove that they can survive without the mass tourism that negatively affects those characteristics.
Following our sustainable tourism policy, we cooperate with hotels owned by locals, mainly family businesses with local employees.
EMPLOYMENT, INCLUSIVITY AND DIVERSITY
We designed our cycling tour to pass through locations that are still pure, away from mass tourism, and that will benefit locals instead of causing problems. We are locals too and we recruit only locals in our business. In addition, we have a plan for the cycling development of the area . On this trip, you will visit so many different places and you will always be surrounded by locals, experiencing the Greek way of living. But the most important thing for us, is that your presence here gives us a strong negotiation card for pressing the local authorities for the development of our area, such us constructing cycling streets in our city which will also be used by the locals.or better finance and organisation of our archaeological museums and sites.
