1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Difficult to pick only one ! The location, an old previously abandoned church was bliss. Peaceful and stunning location. The enthusiasm and knowledge of Bernard and Sally ( even if you arrived without much knowledge base if would be impossible to not be inspired and impressed with Bernards skill and talent in tracking and local knowledge and experience ) From the first day when we saw golden eagles, wolf poo and tracks to the 3rd day when the wolves howled back was awe inspiring

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Dress warm for the night time and expect to be pretty smell near the end

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes local food and meeting of local farmers/sheperds who ( in combination with Bernard ) gave us a more balanced approach to the impact the wolves had on the local community provided a more balanced opinion.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There were so many memorable parts to this holiday, living together as a small group without electricity and warm water, hearing a pack of wolves howl, walking through an amazing geological reserve, learning about the wolves habitat with an expert guide and plenty wildlife around, the visit to a local sheep farmer, learning about her challenges with wolves and the simple but overflowing meals at the refuge.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Three nights sounds short, don't let it stop you, it feels like a week :-)

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, I appreciated the attention given to the need for both wildlife and people to live and share the same space. We also enjoyed tasting a variety of local food on our table and many products were organic. It was well done!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I waited two years for this holiday, it was totally worth it!
