South Face Paradise

Being aware of the impact that tourism can have on the environment and local community, we strive to minimize the negative influence of our activities.

We want to offer sustainable 360° tours; for this reason, we take into consideration the 3 pillars of sustainability in tourism in our proposals.

Sustainability pillars

Environmental sustainability

Protecting and conserving the nature, environment, and biodiversity of our territory is essential for us. Thanks to our collaboration with UP2YOU, we can offer CO2-free tours. We have calculated the environmental impact for each package and we include, in the price, the necessary carbon credits to compensate through customer choice certified projects. Other virtuous practices we adopt include ecotrekking and waste collection days, training workshops for industry professionals, and choosing sustainable suppliers.

Economic sustainability

We choose local suppliers who use products and services from the territory, promoting a virtuous circular economy that benefits the community.

Cultural sustainability

In our tours, we want to tell our story and that of our territory, and share our traditions with visitors. In our tours, we include visits to historic sites, museums, and monuments to learn more about the history, tradition, and folklore of the communities. In addition, our local guides, experts in the territory, will tell you anecdotes and peculiarities that you won’t find in guides. We involve the local community by organizing events that promote our territory.

Partner selection

We select suppliers (hospitality, restaurateurs, guides, etc.) who share our same vision and who have implemented interventions and good practices in the context of sustainable tourism, classifying them based on the adopted actions, including:

  • Energy Efficiency and Renewables: The adoption of technologies and techniques to improve efficiency such as LEDs, heating and cooling systems, and water collection systems.

  • Limiting the consumption of plastic: Limiting the use of plastic in tourist facilities. Avoiding the purchase of bottled water and instead using public fountains to reduce plastic waste.

  • Sustainable material choice: The use of sustainable and low-polluting materials, also for cleaning purposes.

  • Search for local products and suppliers: The use of local products and suppliers, at km 0.

  • Organic farming: Organic farming uses sustainable agricultural techniques without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

  • Renovation and recovery of historic buildings: Structure built in a historic building, respecting the original characteristics, applying energy requalification interventions and using local natural materials.

  • Education and communication, sharing eco-sustainability policies: The facility communicates and promotes the eco-sustainability practices adopted to its guests.

  • Heating and water management: Using at least 75% innovative systems for heating management and the production of sanitary water.

  • Biodegradable cleaning products: Use of sustainable products for cleaning the building and providing guests with sets of courtesy without disposable packaging.

  • Car-free accessibility and sustainable mobility: Using sustainable means of transport such as bicycles, buses, or trains. Alternatively, you can choose to share a car.

  • Respect for the territory: The facility provides information about the surrounding nature, culture, and local heritage, as well as appropriate behavior to be followed during visits and excursions.
