EcoTour Adventures Identity
We are a small company that operates tours in Western and central Cyprus. We take pride in showing our guests “authentic Cyprus” and what our island has to offer with regards to its natural, cultural and traditional heritage.
According to The International Ecotourism Society, “Ecotourism is Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.”
At EcoTour Adventures we aspire to follow and respect the above statement and to provide our guests the opportunity, not only to discover and explore authentic and unspoilt locations, but also to learn about, and become a part of the various environmental, cultural and social issues concerning our beautiful island today.
Our Responsible Ecotourism Policy:
Travel philosophy: “See and Share everything but Leave nothing but footprints behind”
- We travel in small groups (vehicle of +/- 8 persons) so as not to hinder the natural environment and its local communities.
- Wherever possible, we avoid commercially touristic locations
- We continually synergise our “tour-guiding” with “eco-conservation-guiding”, always aspiring to showcase a location whilst simultaneously increasing awareness and sensitivity towards the protection of the location and its surroundings (e.g. the green turtle’s hatchery in the Akamas Peninsula, the sea, the unspoilt villages, or the many forests’ hazards (fires, pollution, etc.)
Supporting local “Authentic” Communities
- We only use local goods and services.
- We only work with small, family-run concerns – village taverns, local wineries, small agro-touristic establishments; cheese-making workshops, etc. – and thus, any money spent by our guests remains within the local communities that we visit.
Reduced carbon footprint and policy for recycling
- We have managed to reduce a lot the use of plastic on our tours, and we recycle almost everything we use (cups, plastic bottles etc)
- We operate home-office as most of our administration and marketing is online; As a result we only print a small number of leaflets once a year, and legal paperwork, tax documents etc. are minimal, but always on recycled/ecological paper. In this way we minimise our carbon footprint.
