Responsible tourism: Peloponnese nature vacation, autumn flowers


This particular vacation is all about observing & conserving! We donate 10% of our profits to nature organizations. Much needed in a time where the country suffers from an unprecedented financial crisis. Environmental organizations in Greece have very few means left to support their work and that is why tourism can be such an important tool for conservation!

Also, we deliberately communicate to all local partners involved that we are a group of nature lovers. Thus locals are increasingly aware of the eco-tourist value of their region and respect for nature will be on the rise.

This vacation respects nature and the environment in more ways:

* Wildlife species are not harvested, consumed, displayed, sold, or traded, except as part of a regulated activity that ensures that their utilization is sustainable, and in compliance with local to international laws.

* No wildlife is held captive, except in the case of properly regulated activities, in compliance with local to international law. Living specimens of protected and wildlife species are only kept by those authorized and suitably equipped to house and care for them humanely.

* The trip supports and contributes to biodiversity conservation, including natural protected areas and areas of high biodiversity value.

* Interactions with wildlife, taking into account cumulative impacts, do not produce adverse effects on the viability and behaviour of populations in the wild. Any disturbance of natural ecosystems is minimized, rehabilitated, and there is a compensatory contribution to conservation management.

*Information about and interpretation of the natural surroundings is provided to travelers, as well as explaining appropriate behaviour while visiting natural areas.

* We are at the moment in the process of becoming a Travelife certified partner! In order to keep our environmental impact as low as possible we use group transportation (minibus) and walk as much as possible. Furthermore we give the option to offset carbon emissions of this trip.


We have applied to become a certified partner of Travelife, a third party organization that checks and certifies sustainable tour operators. 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. This trip is an example of non-mass tourism to highly interesting places but less well-known (Arcadia, Mani, Taygetos, Mystras, Monemvasia and Mount Parnonas) in the off-season!

This is very helpful to those locals in need of extra income that have seen a sharp income drop over the last years! 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 favour locally appropriate and ecologically sustainable products, including building materials, capital goods, food, beverages and consumables.

* Use of a small family-owned hotel(s).
