Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
On our trips we bike on paved roads only, walk and hike on beaten paths and ask our guests not to feed, fish, hunt and disturb animals.

Our activities are all human powered and as such preserve our environment. Additionally, we use a lighter inflatable seat on top of kayaks on all our river kayaking trips that do not damage the river bed and travertines, as it is important for us to preserve the nature and beauty of our river systems.

By booking this trip you get to see a whole new perspective of this beautiful part of Croatia by kayaking on the hidden and best preserved parts of the clearest rivers in Croatia.

A visit to National Park Plitvice Lakes is included in the program - the fees that we pay to the National Park contribute to the conservation of that area.

In our office, we minimize printing actions and recycle paper. Most of all, we ensure that negative environmental impacts are drawn to a minimum.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

By booking this trip you bring much needed income to the people who are still recovering from the war-torn years, as this was the area severely affected by war.

This trip ensures that the local people benefit as much as possible in the form of jobs (we employ local guides and drivers) and provision of accommodation (we use family owned hotels or home stays with local family). We also use local transfer services, buy food from the small farms and work on developing responsible waste management by stimulating waste recycle.

By buying local products you are supporting this countries’ economy and helping Croatia to stand on her 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 country’s natural resources.

Zeleni kut is a small family hotel that directly or indirectly employs many local people and in that way is irreplaceable in the community. Our hosts in that small family restaurant prepare breakfasts and barbecue dinners with their own home grown food and fish from their own pond.
