Responsible tourism: Peloponnese botanical vacation, summer mountains

Environment

This trip is all about observation and conservation! It proves that tourism can be a significantly important tool for conservation, by respecting wildlife and biodiversity in every possible way! Specifically:

*Wildlife species are not harvested, consumed, displayed, sold, or traded.

*We never hold wildlife captive. Any interaction with wildlife, when necessary, is conducted in a way that does not produce adverse effects on the viability and behavior of populations in the wild. Any disturbance to natural ecosystems is minimized.

*Information about and interpretation of the natural surroundings is provided to travelers, as well as explaining appropriate behavior while visiting natural areas. Locals and local businesses are explicitly told that the reason for our visit is nature.

The more locals understand that nature-based tourism benefits their region, the more the nature and environment is respected. In order to keep our environmental impact as low as possible we use group transportation (minibus and boat) and walk as much as possible. Furthermore we give the option to offset carbon emissions.

For that reason we have a carbon calculator installed on our website and when booking with us you easily can select the offsetting project of your choice. We are currently applying for a 3rd party sustainability label (Travelife) for tour operators.

Community

One of our core values is to celebrate a Diversity of Place & Culture whilst delivering you rich and authentic experiences at an affordable price. It is done because we are 100% local. You will visit an area that is hardly touched by tourism and thus offer you authentic experiences such as local traditional cuisine and local traditional architecture.

Being a Greece-based tour operator, our locally developed trips ensure that tourism benefits the right people, minimizing “leakage” from the local economy and avoiding the costs of intermediaries. We offer you more at lower rates!

We support the community in the following ways:

* Information about and interpretation of the local culture, and cultural heritage is provided to travelers.

* Local services and goods are purchased and offered, following fair-trade principles.

* Supporting local small entrepreneurs to develop and sell sustainable products that are based on the area’s nature, history and culture (including food and beverages, crafts, performance arts, agricultural products, etc.).

*Purchasing policies favor locally appropriate and ecologically sustainable products, including building materials, capital goods, food, beverages and consumables.

* Accommodations are small scale and family run - authentic hotels and guesthouses.
