Description of Kosovo multi activity vacation
2023: 1 Oct, 8 Oct
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.
PlanetWe want our vacations to be high impact in experience but low impact on the environment! Transport is mostly on foot excepting transfers to points for excursions or restaurants if needed.
Your visit will help sustain sensitive tourism and protection for these areas. As such, our tour guides will encourage you to behave in an eco-friendly manner at all times by supporting the Leave No Trace principles Ėtraveling where possible along marked water channels, disposing of waste properly, leaving what you find (unless itís other peopleís rubbish!), respecting wildlife and being considerate of other visitors and the local community.
We are committed to local conservation projects and have contributed actively as well as financially to local initiatives. As one of the leading sustainable tour operator in the Balkans, it is up to us to lead by example, protecting the National Parks from over-development and ensuring their beauty can be enjoyed by the next generation.
We are also working with German eco-tourism NGO GIZ and the World Bank funded 'Albania and Montenegro Lake Skadar Joint Eco-systems Project' to identify formal ways for our customers to volunteer and directly benefit the environment during their stay.
PeopleWe have built strong links with local communities and support their maintenance of threatened traditions Ė from bee-keeping to the making of wine, cheese, olive-oil and flavoured brandies. By visiting home-producers and buying their wares, you will build pride, contribute to the local economy and encourage the development of eco-tourism in an area where tourism needs examples of how to develop sustainably. We only work with guides and family businesses that adhere to strict sustainable protocols, and ensure that every contributor to the vacation follows these guidelines in order to preserve the astounding nature of Kosovoís national parks.
English isnít widely spoken, but your guides will be able to translate to make each interaction create a valuable cultural exchange between you and your host community. Your visit really counts in a remote, beautiful and unknown Balkan destination which is still suffering from decades of impoverishment after the infamous Yugoslavian civil war of the 1990s.
