Albanian Trip @ post-Covid19 – a new age!
The update for our response to the Covid19 situation
Well we are living a normal life in this country (Albania). All seems to be normal and apart from the masks on people’s faces and the news on tv, there is nothing to remind us that Covid19 is still around. It is maybe proper to say that while in provinces and countryside COVID19 is a distant story, in Tirana we feel its presence a lot more.
While we wait for that blessed vaccine or a miracle to happen, we patiently wait and work in order to improve our approach to the travel business. We are working in great collaboration with local authorities, our favorite Protected Areas, the Travel Foundation with the help of which we are also setting up our own non profit called ARTI (Albanian Responsible Travel Initiative). We are soon official but already active in a couple of very exciting great initiatives that will help a lot of our destinations be better prepared to a new reality.
We keep working with IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) and the great project DestiMED Plus, this time in the spectacular Protected Area of Divjake-Karavasta. Stay tuned to find out about the developments in there. A hugely great new package with a real low impact on environment and a great experience for all those travelers that will choose it.
Times are running fast and the opening has already started to happen since a while. We did have some very successful private tours this spring and summer. Quite a few great private ones happened in September and October too. The people that joined them were very happy with our performance. All the standards for hygiene and safety were successful met.
We will make sure to keep present the requirements and as fall is already here and winter is approaching, we will make sure that we keep standards in mind. Our map of standards is officially approved by the Albanian Government (a good student of WHO) and the International actors with which we are in touch and we work with.
As usual we will remain big fans of authenticity and sustainability. First new reservations are coming and that’s exciting as well.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch! Any question and inquiry is welcomed, now even more than before.
