Our commitment to helping keep the island ecosystem pristine is quite strong. Our group and private tours involve an appreciation of nature’s bounty and focus on leaving behind a very small carbon footprint. We believe that if we teach about the environmental hurdles that our island faces we foster a deeper appreciation of its beauty – and that appreciation builds respect from our visitors for our nature, which is the secret key to sustainability and our ultimate preservation in paradise. While our spectacular guided tours take a multi-faceted approach that orients the visitor to the archaeological history and includes the geological sketch they also delve into the present-day environmental reality of our island. We incorporate various zero-emissions and waste-free solutions to address the ecological crisis that wholesale tourism otherwise generates. We also Have spearheaded reforestation efforts to counteract the overgrazing of our meadows and forests by the problematic goat overpopulation.
