Nature

Hiking, mountain biking, birdwatching, trekking... choose your way to explore 


The southern part of the Balkan Peninsula is one of the developed world's few remaining regions where industrialisation has left intact much of the wilderness and wildlife. 

Which is why down here, travellers sharing the values of ethical tourism will have every chance to:

spot wildlife (notably species such as brown bear, wolf, bobcat, seal, dolphin, and pelican);
see the habitat of these animals and birds, meet people with whom they share their "turf", learn about the region's history;
 celebrate the beauty of this corner of the world, as well as that of Planet Earth at large. 

 Wolves and brown Bears land                          (ex of theme perfect for families with children, nature lovers...)

The Greek mountains are a heaven for wildlife, including big carnivores such as wolves, lynxs and bears. 

The country's mountainous areas, sparsely populated  by humans, allow these animals to lead a relatively quiet life. They (the animals) rarely become targets of hunters here (with shepherds, though, cohabitation may be somewhat more problematic). Other benefits include the lack of tourist crowds, who would make wildlife reproduction difficult; and the well-preserved environment, which provides the local animal dwellers with ample food (the ecosystem has remained largely unaffected by civilisation and so there still exists a natural balance between its plant and animal species). 

An ethical traveller will be able to admire the region's natural scenery and wildlife as well as to see and appreciate its cultural heritage created by humans. This is a great re-energizing destination. By visiting the Bearland, you will be able not just to learn more about bear and other animals, but also to give yourself a break from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

Ethical tourism: How can it pay off ? 

Why should you entrust a professional adhering to the values of socially responsible tourism with the organisation of your vacation? Because this will provide you with benefits such as:

 Quality accommodation not at some of the mass tourism sector's chain hotel high-rises, but in houses built to human scale and in harmony with their environment, plus run by families; that kind of lodgings will make your stay more authentic;

 A chance to contribute to the well-being of local rural communities, which largely depend on the tourist inflow, as well as to support the local economy by buying services without any go-between (directly from the organiser, the host and the guide);

 An opportunity to purchase all hospitality-sector services directly from their providers and thereby to reduce your travel costs without compromising on quality.
