Self drive tour in Sardinia, Italy
Description of Self drive tour in Sardinia, Italy
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetSardinia, with its world-renowned beaches, pristine coastline, forests, woods and meadows villages draws visitors from across Italy and the world. As an Italian tour operator, it is our responsibility to limit ours and our guests impact on the environment for the community that call Sardinia their home and our future guests that want a genuine experience of the island when they visit. We have a strong responsible travel policy across all our tours and here are some of the things we are doing to help make our impact on Sardinia a positive one.
meals we book for you are taken at local restaurants, cafes and hotel breakfasts. We encourage you to do the same on your free days as this reduces packaging significantly and helps support small and medium-size local businesses
You will receive a free reusable water bottle on the first day of your trip and there will be lots of opportunities to refill en-route.
Our philosophy of slow travel and exposing visitors to artisan Italy means we use small, local and micro businesses where ever possible to supply services like accommodation, transport and sightseeing such as visits to artisan workshops, farms and small wineries. In fact, it adds to the experience on our tours and is an important part of small business income and we feel also helps keep traditions alive and thriving.
PeopleLocal Crafts & Culture
Making quality products by hand is very important in Italian culture. From pasta to shoes to supercars we take immense pride in Italian Design and Craftmanship. As Italians, we have met some incredible artisans across the country over the years and are proud to call them our friends. On this trip, you visit many such artisans and meet local guides.
Friends and Neighbours
You will have lunch with local shepherds who many can trace their family history back to past generations doing the same job and producing the same products. Traditional jobs in Sardinia, like the world over, are under pressure from large-scale industry and the economic benefits of diversifying into taking guests into for lunch has made a positive impact on the local economy.
A Fair Deal
All of our suppliers, partners and friends that provide goods and services to your travel experience have sound commercial agreements in place. We work together closely to ensure that there is no compromise to quality by squeezing margins as some larger corporations can operate.
