Responsible tourism: Electric bike cycling vacation in Cyprus

Environment

Wildlife
We love to share our beautiful island with Cypriots and visitors alike. Our efforts to present Cyprus wildlife in order to educate people about it go back to 2002, with the production of a trilingual website with extensive information on the flora and fauna of Cyprus (thousands of relevant photos and info on nearly 400 bird species, 30 mammals, nearly 400 selected plant species and 50 mushroom species, as well as the reptiles of Cyprus). Furthermore a number of flora and fauna photos are shared regularly through social media (more to remind people of the richness of our island).

Where possible, we design our travel packages with the intention of enriching our clients experience by taking them through places where it is possible (but never certain) that they will spot very local wildlife. Travelers have the possibility to spot moufflon (a shy, local wild sheep subspecies that resides in Paphos Forest) as well as griffon vultures in Xeros Potamos Valley. We provide instructions on the best and most responsible ways to view any wildlife we encounter.

Buildings
We cherish our rich cultural heritage and make a best effort to use traditional buildings for accommodation, provided they have all necessary infrastructure, permits and insurance. We use such buildings in Pera Orinis, Kakopetria, Arsos and Pano Panagia villages, in other words in four of the six accommodations where the explorers would stay. We value the local architecture that uses locally found materials, and we believe our clients value it too. Besides the fact that using these buildings adds authenticity to our trips, these renovated buildings increase the cultural wealth in our lives and we like to promote them because the use of locally found materials in building construction is as a rule good for the environment in general.

Community

Friends & Neighbours
In the specific package we do not include dinner even though it would probably be a bit cheaper for the traveler. We prefer to encourage travelers to explore the local communities and benefit a larger number of locals by spreading their spending. This interaction and financial benefit gives an incentive to the wider community to conserve their heritage. When we use taxi's (especially long distance) we make a best effort to use locals instead of professionals living in the cities because we like to support the local, rural economy.

Local crafts and culture
Our services are about authentic experiences, and cultural heritage is one large element of these. Local cuisine is a living component of our cultural heritage, reflecting the intermixing of a number of civilisations that came to the island. We encourage visitors to try the local cuisine (including halloumi, the Cyprus cheese), because we consider it of high quality. We encourage travelers to visit at least one rural winery (eg on their way to Pano Panagia village) since the island has a long wine history and indigenous grape varieties not found anywhere else (like Xynisteri, Maratheftiko and Spourtiko). Such visits in turn benefit the wine makers and provide them an incentive to continue to cultivate the ancient vineyards and produce quality wine. We encourage travelers to visit many of the Unesco World Heritage sites on the route (five of the ten Troodos painted churches are either right on or very close to the route), and possibly other attractions on the itinerary, watermills, medieval bridges, picturesque villages and even ancient trees, as it greatly enriches their experience and may also benefit the local communities.
