Unique experiences for our clients

When working on a program for our clients, we let our imagination fly. We want to offer the most exciting, the most amazing experiences that we can possibly think of. From hiking with breath-taking views, kayaking under a high mountain, to a private castle visit or an accommodation in the treetops.

But of course, we always listen to our clients and follow their instructions and restrictions. We either suggest adventurous rafting on fast waters, zip line above the rivers or mountain biking through small picturesque villages. There is always time for local product tasting, visit of a winery, a family run fish farm or a local prosciutto producer. For more culture inspired groups, we suggest candlelight castle visits or city architecture tours. For animal and nature lovers, there is also observation of brown bears or demonstration of truffle hunting.

And we always try to stay friendly to environment, nature and locals.

CSR activities (Corporate social responsibility)

Since more and more companies have socially responsible concept integrated in their business operations, a call for such activity is also sought at a travel destination. Special measurements as limited water and food consumption, selection of locally made gifts and avoiding plastic waste is always encouraged.

In more depth it can be organised as a charity donation or as a voluntary activity of the participants.

Different activities can be suggested in this case, most often they would be related to the industry, the company is coming from. But here are a few general ideas that are available on request: planting of trees, distribution of food, painting of walls, training/educating, recycling, building a garden shed etc. These projects are always addressed individually considering clients' special wishes and goals that need to be achieved.
