Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Many of the activities on this vacation take place in the coastal setting of Southwest Croatia. We do everything that we can to ensure that this setting is left unspoilt.

Client families are booked to travel in groups – whether on the ferry or a boat trip or when being transferred between the hotel and the activities and the beaches on the itinerary. This reduced vehicle use minimises overall pollution to the Adriatic environment. The same can be said of flights from London to Dubrovnik: they are direct, and we put many groups on each one.

Younger children may come across as difficult to control and more likely to cause environmental damage to beaches and park territory. Our guides make sure that families are made fully aware of the importance of places like nature parks; moreover, responsible parents on our vacations ensure that children are well-behaved and respect the destinations they visit.

The Impacts of this Trip

This family vacation to the Elaphiti Islands on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast provides local guides and instructors the chance to showcase their family-engaging skills and practices, such as when they take our guests sea kayaking or trekking around the islands. It supports specialised local shops, such as the artisan ice cream producers on the islands. It also widens knowledge of Croatia’s coastal beauty in the international community, especially as the Elaphiti Islands are relatively unknown to people around the world.

While it is common to look at how a vacation benefits the destination community, the immense advantage of this trip to the four to eight-year-old community should not be ignored. These years are a period of immense physical and mental growth, and this vacation helps in augmenting both. For example, swimming in the shallow waters around the islands or kayaking will introduce children to new active experiences, boosting their confidence of the outdoors. Likewise, taking them around the streets of Dubrovnik and immersing them in new sights and smells will boost their cultural sensitivity as well as helping them to appreciate the history and culture of a different country.
