Sustainability

Aware of the impact that tourism can have on the environment and the local community, we are committed to minimizing the negative influence of our activities.

We want to offer 360° sustainable tours; for this reason, in our proposals, we take into consideration the 3 pillars of sustainability in tourism:
  • Environmental Sustainability: Protecting and conserving the nature, environment, and biodiversity of our territory is essential for us. Thanks to collaboration with UP2YOU, we can offer CO2-free tours. For each package, the environmental impact has been calculated, and we predict, included in the price, the necessary carbon credits to offset it, on customer’s choice of certified projects. Other virtuous practices we adopt include days of ecotrekking and waste collection, as well as training workshops for industry professionals and the choice of sustainable suppliers.
  • Economic Sustainability: We choose local suppliers who use products and services from the territory, promoting a circular and virtuous economy that benefits the community.
  • Cultural Sustainability: In our tours, we want to tell our story and that of our territory, sharing our traditions with visitors. In our tours, we include visits to historical sites, museums, and monuments to learn more about the history, tradition, and folklore of the communities. Furthermore, our local guides, experts in the territory, will tell anecdotes and peculiarities not found in guides. We involve and collaborate with the local community by organizing events that promote our territory.
Additionally, we select suppliers (hospitality, restaurants, guides, etc.) that share our same vision and have implemented interventions and good practices in the context of sustainable tourism, classifying them based on the actions taken, including:
  • Energy Efficiency and Renewable Sources: Adoption of technologies and techniques to improve efficiency, such as LED, heating and cooling systems, and water collection systems.
  • Limiting Plastic Consumption: Limiting the use of plastic in tourist facilities. Avoiding the purchase of bottled water and using public fountains instead to reduce plastic waste.
  • Choice of Sustainable Materials: The use of sustainable and low-polluting materials, even for cleaning purposes.
  • Search for Local Products and Suppliers: The use of local products and suppliers, at km 0.
  • Organic Agriculture: Organic agriculture uses sustainable farming techniques without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
  • Restoration and Recovery of Historical Buildings: Structure made in a historic building respecting its original characteristics, applying energy redevelopment interventions, and using local natural materials.
  • Training and Communication, Sharing Eco-Sustainability Policies: The structure communicates to its guests and promotes the adopted eco-sustainability practices.
  • Heating and Water Management: Use of at least 75% innovative systems for heating management and sanitary water production.
  • Biodegradable Cleaning Products: Use of sustainable products for building cleaning and providing guests with toiletry sets without disposable packaging.
  • Car-free Accessibility and Sustainable Mobility: Use of sustainable means of transportation such as bikes, buses, or trains. Alternatively, choosing to share a car.
  • Respect for the Territory: The structure provides information about the surrounding nature, local culture and heritage, as well as appropriate behavior during visits and excursions.
