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.
PlanetThe distances travelled on this trip are large, so when traveling we go by public bus or train where possible, and only by private vehicles where necessary. In addition to this, we keep the size of the coach to a minimum, so rather than using gas guzzling 40-50 seaters we opt for more environmental friendly 15-25 seat coaches that use less fuel and therefore admit less carbon.
Taking care of where we visit for now and the future is an important aspect to our trip. The local Leaders actively encourage everyone to refill their reusable water bottles with the local, drinkable tap water. In addition, they ask that travelers not only collect their own waste and dispose of it in a suitable manner, but also rubbish they find along paths to ensure the environment is unharmed and left as it should be.
As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.
PeopleAuthentic local flavours and cuisine are all part of visiting Slovenia, and our local Leaders help to arrange meals in small, family-owned restaurants which are frequented by locals. This means money is fed into the local community, but you also get the real experience and enjoy the tastes that Slovenia has to offer.
Another way to support local artisans is through the visits to Piran Saltworks and the markets in Ljubljana and Piran. Here, you can buy local delicacies such as salt, olives, pumpkin oil, wine and honey which means they can continue to produce these in their traditional ways.
As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
