As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe support wildlife in our community by donating 1% of each booking to Blue World - researching dolphin organization. We have more than 400 dolphins in the area around the island of Vis, and Blue world organization track them every day. It's almost impossible to spent a day at sea without seeing dolphins, especially in spring time when the sea traffic is quieter than in summer. It's quite an experience to see wild dolphins swim around you, and we are aware how much they mean for a marine life.
We also plant our own vegetables in a completely "eco" way. Our vegetables don't contain a single drop of pesticide, just water and sun. In our vineyards it is the same situation, and the eco brand on every bottle is the evidence of hard work. Our guests are welcome to join in with watering and harvesting the grapes and vegetables every year, allowing them to see how we prepare this crop.
We organise cleaning of the beaches and underwater areas in our community. Since we are located on open sea, we have strong winter winds which brings us all sort of garbage. Every spring, volunteers are more than welcome to help us keep our beaches and underwater clean. Every year, with support of the town of Vis, we collect more than a 500 kilos of garbage in 5 different beaches in the Rukavac area. In this way, we help our island to stay clean on the land and underwater. Island Vis is one of the cleanest islands in middle Mediterranean area.
PeopleLocal taverns is a best way to get familiar with our way of preparing meals. With recommendation for our guests, we organize a wine and local meal tasting tours where you can see and try some of the oldest meals in Croatia.
Traveling around the world for us is a meaning of life and promoting our community, Island Vis and Croatia is a big amd very important thing. Ensuring rhe right promotion and learnig how other tourist buissines work on different continents make us comentent in our buissines.
Beside keeping island clean, we support "SVIMA" organization. In this community, kids from all over Croatia can learn about island history, old trades, how to preserve an ecologic on the island, they organize all sorts of workshops around the island and we provide them a free transportation on land or sea.
For us, working with kids is always special, especially when our mission is to return young people back on the island, and to provide them any sort of decent living in this part of paradise!
