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 nature escape to Croatia has a heavy focus on ocean conservation, nature and regional & local cuisine. Our community partner specifically works on ocean cleanup and education with tourists on how they can make their travels more sustainable, which we'll learn on our EcoWalk Talk with them in Split.
We work with our local hotel partners to ensure fresh, locally sourced breakfasts as much as possible and we visit locally owned restaurants that prioritize regional cuisine such as seafood with as much attention to sustainable practices as possible.
Any time we buy snacks for the road, we look for fresh and local bites; in Croatia this might be fresh cheese, olives or a delicious pastry from the local baker, or an afternoon wine from the region.
On all of our trips, we focus on reduction of plastic and make sure that water jugs are available for refilling personal reusable water bottles. In the event of waste, recycle and composting, we direct our client to the appropriate bins and disposal method.
PeopleOur itinerary prioritizes locally owned suppliers including our boutique hotels, local guides, transportation providers, and restaurants.
Our accommodations are small, generally with around 10 rooms, and pride themselves in showcasing their local community including the neighborhood we stay in and the fresh, local food that they serve.
Our local tour guides are residents of the respective city and know its achievements & challenges, history and culture and provide in-depth perspective and context as we learn about the unique place we're visiting. We believe that a sound understanding of the local culture and community is essential to a transformative travel experience, and there is no better way to get that than from hearing through the stories of a local.
We also engage in a community partner activity to learn about ocean conservation in Croatia. We'll have a several hour excursion walking with them in Split to see the coastline, engage, ask questions, and see first-hand the impact that they've had. 5% of trip sales are donated to the NGO partner.
