Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

5% of your booking sum goes to the local Rewilding Europe organization.

Due to the huge growth in coastal tourism in Croatia over the last 10-15 years, many local inhabitants have moved out of the Velebit area towards the coast. As a result, many areas of this beautiful region are now characterised by land abandonment, rural exodus and fading cultural tradition. Rewilding Europe is working with local partners to transform these challenges into opportunities. This has seen the establishment of the 23,000-hectare Velebit Nature Reserve.

A new wildlife watching venture saw the construction and opening of two wildlife hides in this reserve in 2016. These will benefit the local community through job opportunities and boosted tourism income. They represent the first step in developing the area’s vast potential as a sustainable nature tourism destination.

Two unique forests in the Rewilding Velebit area were recently added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Rewilding Europe is working to promote this model across Europe.

Rewilding Europe has three loans already provided in support of rewilding enterprises in the area.
Three wildlife watching hides had been constructed, placed and opened in the Velebit Wildlife Reserve, with a tourist vehicle purchased to support wildlife watching business operations. These will benefit the local community through job opportunities and boosted tourism income. They represent the first step in developing the area’s vast potential as a sustainable nature tourism destination.

We campaign to promote the beauty and development of this area in the media.
In 2016 a photo exhibition titled "Velebit – Wild Heart of Croatia" was opened in the medieval coastal city of Senj, promoting Velebit's wild nature, wildlife and appeal as a nature travel destination.
Velebit and the Lika Plains have featured in numerous international publications and on Croatian national TV and other media, reaching more than 6 million people.
A 25-minute documentary featuring renowned TV presenter and Dutch Zipcode Lottery Ambassador Humberto Tan showcased the Velebit Mountains rewilding area in 2017.
