Here in Albania, we are now living a relatively normal life, except for masks and news headlines. While we patiently wait for the blessed vaccine, we are working to improve our approach to the travel business by collaborating with local authorities, our favorite Protected Areas, and the Travel Foundation, with whom we are working to set up our own nonprofit called ARTI (Albanian Responsible Travel Initiative). It will be soon official, but in the meantime, we are actively pursuing exciting initiatives that will help our destinations be better prepared for this new reality!
We keep working with IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) and the great project DestiMED, this time in the spectacular Protected Area of Divjake-Karavasta. Stay tuned to find out about the developments there – a new package with a low impact on the environment and a great experience for all those travelers who’ll choose it.
In terms of how our company has been adapting to protecting customers as Albanian tourism re-opens, we follow all standards of safety and hygiene. We operated successful tours in the summer and fall of 2020, and the people who joined them were very happy with our performance. Our map of standards is officially approved by the Albanian Government (a good student of WHO) and the international actors with whom we are in touch.
As usual we will remain big fans of authenticity and sustainability. Don’t hesitate to get in touch! Any question and inquiry is welcomed, now even more than before
