About this holiday
If you are a lover of sea and sun but at the same time you want to see something more, then this is your trip. If you like to explore and always discover new things, with a touch of adventure, this can be the holidays of your dreams. You will make a self-driving tour of Peloponnese spending the night in hotels or apartments in the most beautiful places of the area so that you can enjoy the Greek sea and sun. But the most important is that we have chosen for you the overnighting spots taking under consideration except the beauty, the position so they are suitable for visiting the nearest best beaches or just having day-trips. In addition, there are plenty of other points of interest around like archaeological sites, medieval castles or wineries.
It is a trip perfect for couples or families who wish to spend their summer time together. All hotels are chosen carefully by us but there is also the option for upgrade. You can choose the type of your car according to your needs and the quality of the hotels according to your wishes. When landing in Athens airport, your car will be waiting for you. You will already have in your hands all information needed about this trip (hotels, itineraries, maps, beaches and other places of interest that you might want to visit etc), and the exploration begins!
Why choose this holiday?
The advantage of this trip is that it gives you the chance to visit the best beach places of Peloponnese, all in one trip, chosen by the Peloponnese travel experts, as only the locals know them. In no other spot you will find such a diversity in summer destinations as you shouldn’t forget that Peloponnese is the biggest island of Greece! This trip is designed to provide you not only the daily exploration but also enough time to relax, swim in the sea and sunbath. As this holiday is self-driving, it gives you the freedom to choose your travelling time during the day and also decide on your own about some of your day-trips.
According to your needs and mainly to the number of participants, we arrange for you to have a car that will be suitable for you(couples, families etc). If you are a bigger group, you can have a van or two cars. You will pick up the car at the Athens Airport, make the tour and deliver it back there in the end. As the time of your daily transportation is up to you, you have the possibility to organize your program in the way that you prefer as long as you appear in the hotel the scheduled day. You can drive morning or night, directly or with stops; it’s completely your decision!
Responsible travel holiday
Responsible travel is a new way of travelling for all those who prefer authenticity of experiences, life and culture instead of mass tourism. It’s about respecting and benefiting local people and the environment – but it’s about far more than that. Responsible travel is about bringing you closer to local cultures and environments by involving local people in tourism. It’s about doing this in a fair way that helps ensure that they will give you an even warmer welcome. For example, a local guide from the destination will open your eyes to their cultures and ways of life far better than an expat guide could ever do.
The responsible travelers want to get a little bit more out of their travels, and to give a little bit back to the special places and people that they encounter. They want deeper and more real travel experiences. The responsible traveler values authenticity – experiences integral to local people’s traditions, cultures and rituals – rather than those created for tourism, or those whose existing meanings and uses have become lost as they have been packaged up for tourism.
Choosing our holidays, you choose responsible holidays. One of our biggest concerns is to secure that tourism will not affect negatively our area in ecological and also socio-cultural way, and also that the locals will mostly benefit from your travel. Our company which is the organizer and operator of this package is local-based and all our employees are locals too. In this trip, you will be given material about how to apply maximum responsibility during your holidays. We also, as a company, offer 1% of the total price of this package per person for the environment, for offsetting the carbon emissions caused by this trip. This money are going to be used, in cooperation with the local Forestry Office, the Greek Climbing Club of Tripoli and the Tripoli Ecologist Club, for reforestation in our mountains, that have been hit by great fires in the summer of 2007.
