Self drive vacation in Greece
Description of Self drive vacation in Greece
Everything is tweak-able, giving you the freedom to build a unique and personal trip for your chosen date. Upgrade your accommodation for all - or just part - of your trip, slow down the pace with few extra nights here and there or add a few more active adventures along the way.
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.
PlanetThis itinerary focuses on exploring by foot and car through Greece. We aim to do all the activities on foot making it more friendly to the environment. We also gives maps so that you can follow a route which impacts less on the scenery and natural areas. Wherever possible, we use hand-picked eco-friendly accommodation that have their own environmentally-friendly policies and encourage their guests to behave in an environmentally-friendly manner to limit energy usage.
Visiting local places we encourage our travelers to report anything which doesn’t seem right during their trip so that we can act upon it.
Before departing on this trip, our customers will always receive an informative document called 'Be a responsible traveler', which provides useful advice on how they are able to travel in an environmentally-friendly way such as using reusable water bottles and limiting the amount of energy that they use.
We are very passionate about recycling, beginning in our Brighton office where we use a local company to ensure we all know where our waste is going, we encourage a no wastage policy, by asking staff to take leftover food home. We also have a largely ‘paperless’ office, refraining from publishing brochures and other marketing collateral, and instead of producing electronic documentation to ensure we use as little paper as possible.
PeopleOn this trip you will stop at a Delphi where you will cook with fresh produce sourced locally. This is also with a local chef which means the money goes back in to the local community.
Wherever possible, we work with independently owned accommodation so that more of our travelers’ money stays in the local communities they are visiting. In Nafplion you can visit one of the oldest ouzo factories in the country and this you’ll be doing just that! This typical Greek anise drink has been traditionally distilled here by the same family for five generations. The friendly owner will give you a short but interesting tour of the factory and tell you more about the history and production of ouzo. This is with a local person and the money going directly in to community. Our hotel in Galaxidi is owned by a local lady who has run the hotel for years and makes jams for her customers from produce she grows herself.
In our documentation that we send out prior to their departure, we inform all of our travelers on the appropriate customs and etiquette when traveling in Greece
