Description of Greece self drive vacations, Vikos' Unesco Geopark
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
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.
PlanetOur aspiration is to introduce a new rationale about TRAVELLING, one that balances knowledge and recreation. Essential knowledge and recreation which is based on the contact with the unadulterated nature of Crete, as well as its landscape, the natural relief,the geomorphology that has impacted local culture and the character of residents from time immemorial.
This is why, in our travels, we select hikes through unknown natural trails, we explore caves, climb mountain peaks, discover the ancient civilization of this land as well as its contemporary expression by those who keep the exuberant past alive.
The locations we select to visit are often significant habitats for sensitive flora and fauna species. Their very existence indicates a healthy natural environment. The least we can do is respect them and minimize the impact of our visit while we are there and after our departure.
This is why…
We collect all our rubbish or other objects that don’t belong to the location and enjoy the scents and views of herbal and other plants. We only photograph them but do not separate them from the soil that nourishes them. We avoid lighting fires and smoking and we take our rubbish with us.
When we depart all that we leave behind is our footprints and all we take with us is our memories.
PeopleOUR SUPPORT TO THE AREA OF ZAGORI
The accommodation we select for you, our travelers, are owned by locals who follow the rules of sustainability and use local resources for the function of their rooms. Breakfasts offered are always made of local fresh products.
The car companies we use are owned by small local companies of locals.
The mountain guides we cooperate with are locals with rich experience and love to the natural treasures of Zagori.
We cooperate with local producers who cultivate and produce healthy products from the wild nature of Epirus Mountains.
OUR GENERAL PHILOSOPHY
This entire exploratory experience is based on the principle of local residents’ active involvement and the substantial contact of travelers with producers, entrepreneurs and residents of the territories visited, who are indisputably those who preserve our millennia-old culture.
Our vision is to contribute as much as we can to the indigenous growth of this land that excites us with its authenticity and exuberance, this land that we never stop discovering.
The human environment is as sensitive as the natural one. Respecting customs and the lifestyle of people in these traditional and truly hospitable places is a necessary condition for experiencing every trip as fully as possible.
