Small group adventure vacation

This is a 'small group adventure' - on this particular group trip you'll be with a maximum of 31 like minded travelers and you'll have a group leader with you. Whether you are traveling alone or with friends it's good value, and a great way to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of privacy. This trip will appeal to travelers of all ages who enjoy meeting people from other parts of the world as well as seeing new places!

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.

Travel is an opportunity to experience different cultures, meet new people, taste weird and wonderful foods and – for many – get close to wildlife you may have only seen in books or David Attenborough documentaries. We actively discourage the participation of travelers in any activities that exploit wild or domestic/working animals. Northern Cyprus has a population of wild donkeys which still roam freely in the Karpass peninsular, many visitors are tempted to feed them with road side stalls often selling carrots to feed to the donkeys. Our leaders are trained to educate and demonstrate to our travelers that these animals are not domesticated and should not be fed by hand from travelers.

Traveling in a small group allows us to stay in family-run hotels throughout the trip. We also support independent restaurants and cafes, serving locally sourced produce.

In the destinations we visit, we use a "take in, take back out" system in fragile environments, remote areas and national parks. Northern Cyprus has 320 sunny days in a years, temperatures can get warm here. In an effort to reduce the use of plastic we provide our passengers with reusable water bottles. These can easily be refilled from larger bottles or for a small fee at restaurants and hotels.

The Impacts of this Trip

An important part of travel is mixing with the locals and experiencing “real life” in destination. This trip supports a local village initiative to promote a sustainable and eco-friendly experience for travelers. This project works with the local municipality and various stakeholders in the village in respect to accommodation facilities, meals and teachings of local traditions. We are proud to be able to stay in this village and learn about this project and the protection of local heritage through a community approach.

We recognise local issues and actively campaign to address them. Northern Cyprus is a small republic that is only recognised by Turkey as an independent republic. In our company we encourage tolerance of all cultures and this tour includes a tour of the once formidable green line to discover the culture of the North and South. We support the work of such charities as hands across the divide who are bridging the gap between the North and the South of Cyprus.
