STATEMENT

We love this island more than we love ourselves and we

We are more than eco-friendly.  

 

Through unique, authentic experiences, through contact with the history, culture, geology, gastronomy and folklore, the visitor is getting involved via effective participation with all the senses, rather than within the detached observation of a new place.

This search, pursuit and desire is defined as Experiential Tourism and it is a wide and very modern field that includes various forms of tourism such as outdoor activities, cultural tourism, culinary tourism, ecotourism, educational travel, heritage tourism, experimental tourism etc..

The common feature of all mentioned above is to include activities beyond the ordinary, environmentally friendly, with respect for the culture of a place.

The Leave No Trace Seven Principles

Plan Ahead and Prepare

Know the regulations and special concerns for the area you'll visit.
Schedule your trip to avoid times of high use.
Visit in small groups when possible. Consider splitting larger groups into smaller groups.

Dispose of Waste Properly

Pack it in, pack it out. Inspect your campsite and rest areas for trash or spilled foods. Pack out all trash, leftover food and litter.
Pack out toilet paper and hygiene products.

Leave What You Find

Preserve the past: examine, but do not touch cultural or historic structures and artifacts.
Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them.
Avoid introducing or transporting non-native species.
Do not build structures, furniture, or dig trenches.

Respect Wildlife

Observe wildlife from a distance. Do not follow or approach them.
Never feed animals. Feeding wildlife damages their health, alters natural behaviors, and exposes them to predators and other dangers.
Protect wildlife and your food by storing rations and trash securely.
Control pets at all times, or leave them at home.
Avoid wildlife during sensitive times: mating, nesting, raising young, or winter.

Be Considerate of Other Visitors

Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience.
Be courteous. Yield to other users on the trail.
Step to the downhill side of the trail when encountering pack stock.
Take breaks and camp away from trails and other visitors.
Let nature's sounds prevail. Avoid loud voices and noises.
