Description of Croatia National parks cycling vacation

Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. Its easy to tick off the big sights independently but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.
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.
PlanetOn our trips we bike on paved roads only, walk and hike off the beaten paths and forewarn our guests not to feed, fish, hunt or disturb animals. Traveling on bike produces no carbon footprint, unlike using all-terrain-vehicles, moto-cross bikes, or other modes of industrial transportation. Also traveling on bike slows your pace down so you take in more of the nature that surrounds you. By buying local products you are supporting this country's economy and helping Croatia stand on its feet again! We consider it our responsibility to lead efforts to maintain and preserve the integrity of this fledgling sector by petitioning the introduction of tighter controls over the use of the countrys natural resources.
In our office we minimize printing actions and recycle paper.
PeopleThis trip ensures that the local people benefit as much as possible in the form of jobs (we employ local guides and drivers, we use either a family owned hotel or home stay with a local family), and most of all by minimizing the negative environmental impacts. Other than that we use local transfer services, buy food from the small farms and work on developing responsible waste management by stimulating waste recycling.
As a company, we support local community by building camps in partnership with local families, building bridges and accesses to the rivers. In order to preserve traventine barriers on Zrmanja River we have built wooden detour bridges. Part of our staff is vegetarian and because of that we try to provide quality vegetarian meals on our trips.
