Responsible tourism: Hiking vacation in Turkey, along the Lycian Way

Environment

Our Responsible Travel policy ensures that we abide by eco-friendly principles in the running of our vacations. We are passionately committed to ensuring that our vacations are eco-friendly to our local environment and contribute to the local economy and community.

We operate small group vacations that have a low impact on the community. All of the accommodation used for our vacations is managed and maintained by local people and the majority are owned by local people.

We use local transport companies and their drivers for airport transfers and where possible we group guests together, so as not to have unnecessary car journeys to and from the airport for individual passengers. On walking vacations the necessity of driving to the starting point of the walks is reduced to an absolute minimum. We try as much as possible to use one of the most sustainable transport method: our feet.

On all of our vacations we inform all our guests about our policy of leaving absolutely no rubbish behind, including organic remains whether on painting, walking or photography trips. We visit Patara National Park during your trip with its 16km long sandy beach is the breeding ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle. It is a protected area and is rich in birdlife and flowers including some very rare endemic species. The importance of protecting the rich biodiversity of this area is paramount and we ensure that we leave the environment undisturbed.

Our vacation ethos is focussed on creating rather than consuming.
In our office we recycle paper and materials. We do not print brochures but rely on marketing through e mail and the internet.

Community

We work with local people to ensure that our vacations benefit the local economy. Guests eat at local restaurants where the majority of the food is organic and locally sourced. We encourage guests to immerse themselves in the culture of the region and gain an understanding of the culture, history and local people. They are given the opportunity to purchase local products and visit the local cultural and historical sites.

We support local businesses by using local restaurants for our vacations.

Private transportation is supplied by local operators.

Our group size never exceeds 12 people which provide for a richer experience and minimizes our impact on places we visit and local communities. Traveling in small groups with like- minded people enables closer participation and connection with local people and the culture of the region. It also makes for a more fulfilling experience where lasting friendships and connections are made.
On all of our vacations we respect the privacy of the local people. We will never photograph anyone without their permission and will ensure our guests are sensitive to the values and privacy of the local community. The local people are incredibly welcoming and friendly and as we have been in the area for a long time we know many very well.
