Responsible tourism: Montenegro self drive vacation

Environment

We have chosen to include places to stay where there is greater opportunity for you to interact with the local people, to practice the local language and to minimise your carbon footprint. The small hotels we offer use predominantly local produce in the preparation of meals, reducing the foodmiles and carbon footprint associated with larger hotels.

We have chosen to include places to stay where public transport is readily available so that the car is not used within towns or national parks. By including the opportunity to visit the National Parks on this vacation you choose to contribute to the excellent record of conservation in recent years through the entrance fees.

As a company we employ responsible policies such as recycling paper, ink cartridges, glass and cardboard; we minimise the use of electricity and conducting the vast majority of our correspondence and promotion via the internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper used for our activities. We also compost waste in our company garden.

Community

Accommodation on this vacation is in primarily, family run, small hotels. The food served in the hotels is sourced locally and a large number of dishes on the menus are home made. We encourage you to employ local guides in places where their expertise and local knowledge will enhance your experience and understanding of the historical context and on the environmental impact of your visit. In Dubrovnik in particular you will see and read about the impact of the war on this UNESCO protected location; the cost of rebuilding and repairing the historic centre has been enormous and every contribution made by visitors helps greatly.

As well as supporting the local community and economy directly, our vacations also encourage support indirectly. As this is a self-drive vacation, visitors can access towns and villages which are off the beaten track, thereby supporting smaller local economies outside of Dubrovnik etc. Greater interaction with local people and local tourist service providers leads to greater understanding and respect which, almost always leads to better tourist and local relations.
