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.
PlanetTo minimise the negative impact on the environment we operate this soft enduro motorcycle tour with small groups, always make sure that our tourists have a recyclable garbage bag and that the waste will be disposed only on the special arranged areas. Our guides, true motorcycle but as well nature enthusiasts, have intricate knowledge of the routes involved and provide our guests with the best suggestions: keep to tracks, not disturb the wildlife, use bio-degradable hygiene products and of course, enjoy themselves.
The itinerary enables our guest not only to enjoy a great ride but to also to connect to the local culture by visiting small rural communities such as Horea village in the heart of Sunset Mountains, or by enjoying a monastic lunch in Ramet Monastery or a traditional Hungarian meal in a small family run country-inn in Savadislava.
Apart from these, we’re making financial contributions for every persons who books one of our tours or programmes in the amount of £1 per person to support Saint Daniel’s Foundation programme entitled 'A grand father for a nephew – A nephew for a grandfather', helping elderly and orphans, people most in need.
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. Guests will receive a pre-trip information pack via e-mail, to minimise the use of paper, which will inform them about issues relating to the place they will travel, some language tips and general advice. Furthermore, our tour guides are well-educated multilingual people who can offer guests their skills as an interpreter and offer up-to-date details on current national and regional issues.
PeopleThe itinerary enables our guest not only to enjoy a great ride but also to connect to the local culture by visiting small rural communities such as the villages in Apuseni Mountains. We focus on sustaining the tradition of the regions visited. Stops on the way at local owned traditional restaurants such as the restaurant in Coltesti, offering Hungarian traditional food. The goulash here is delicious. The riders will stay in local owned hotels and we offer the experience of an overnight in welcoming country inns. Our hosts will be thrilled to introduce the riders to their way of living and prepare for them a traditional home cooked meal.
To make sure the money stays where needed we only use local suppliers and where the itinerary allows us we also use small family run businesses, like in Sighisoara, a charming small city located in Transylvania, home for Sighisoara Medieval Citadel, where the riders will accommodate in small, family run hotel. This is actually an ideal opportunity to spend more time with the locals but also ensure that the financial benefits of your visit reach the people of the area and not some large companies based outside the region.
Make your visit count, support the local economy. The economic situation of Romania is delicate. Support the local economy so that the money generated stay in the communities you are welcomed into. We recommend buying locally made handicrafts and try the locally produced goods.
Visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites and archaeological parks: please respect the rules and regulations of such parks. The entry fees will help maintain and even restore the precious tourist attractions visited throughout the tour. When in a museum first ask if it is permitted to take photographs. Many museums or heritage sites also ask for a small fee if you use your camera or video-recorder. Be honest – remember the money is put towards restoration and preservation projects. Even though many of the artifacts are openly displayed, please do not touch them to help ensure their longevity.
Pay a fair price for goods and services: Bear in mind that most of the crafts, clothing and carpets on a sale are hand made using lengthy traditional processes. Expect to pay a high price, they are superb in quality and help to preserve local traditions and economies.
Apart from these, we’re making financial contributions for every persons who books one of our tours in the amount of £1 per person to support Saint Daniel’s Foundation project entitled 'A grand father for a nephew – A nephew for a grandfather', helping elderly and orphans, people most in need.
