Responsible Travel

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.


Tourism is the world's fastest growing industry. Traveling to far flung places gives us a wonderful opportunity to experience cultures that are so different from our own. But with the wondrous joy of travel comes the responsibility of ensuring that we do not adversely affect those countries that we visit. In a nutshell, Responsible Travel is about ensuring that you, as travelers, and we, as a promoter of travel:

-respect the local culture
-do not inadvertently introduce new social ills and
-promote & practice environmental responsibility in the places that we visit.

That way, you enjoy a unique and memorable experience as well as authentic cross-cultural exchange and our local resources, cultures and customs are protected.

Our environmental policy:
We recycle all our waste paper.
Our correspondence and promotion is carried out via the internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper used for our activities.
We use established, locally-owned and run accommodation wherever possible and aim to leave sites in better condition than we find them.
Our vehicle fleet is managed to minimise environmental impact.
Our group sizes are small, helping minimise cultural and environmental impact.
We monitor our impact, and where necessary alter our programmes accordingly.
We always abide by site-specific guidelines pertaining to flora and fauna.

In this tour our customers will get to know whole Istrian peninsula. They will ride a bike from the medieval towns of Grožnjan and Buzet in countryside of Istria till coastline towns such as Pula, Rovinj and Porec. Cyclist will overnight in small family hotels such as „Casa Romantica Parenzana“ which is located on the “Parenzana” an old disused Austro Hungarian railway line which once connected Trieste with Porec. In Pula they will be in hotel called "Amfiteatar " just next to magnificent Roman amphiteater from 3th century. All the hotels on the route are bike friendly hotels. This way we are supporting our cultural sights.


We also involve local communities in remote areas that we travel to.
Our accommodation is mostly provided in small hotels, guest houses or apartments. On all our tours we use local produce and provide local-style meals, and we encourage our guests to try local dishes and delicacies. Most of the hotels such as "Casa Parenzana" in Buje or "Vela Vrata" in Buzet have excellent restourants where they serve traditional Istrian food such as truffles or "maneštra".
We support local economy and small business by supporting locally owned shops, restaurants, and using local guide services. Using local employees, accommodation providers, local restaurants and transportation services, we ensures that financial benefits remain in the local community. On this tour we label for them in self guided books many small family run restourants so called "konoba" where they can try dishes made from truffles or enjoy in best Istrian wines such as Tomaz, Arman, Benvenuti or Kabola in wine cellars that are also labeled .
