Travel ethics

Through all our advertised treks we aim to get as close as possible of a green travelling and our plan is to contribute to the conservation initiatives and encourage local communities to safeguard natural resources with the view of reducing at the minimum the possible damage that often can be done to the nature and its existent habitats of flora and fauna.

Integral to our advertised treks there is a sensitivity to traditional cultures. The money the visitors spend on transport, food, lodging, guides and park fees supports the local economy by creating jobs and a sustainable economic infrastructure.

Travel Ethics

Protect the environment

Travel Horizons intends to inform well the travellers about how to leave the nature before they move on. It is up to all of us to make responsible choices to travel in a way that preserves our precious natural resources. This way can be a highly effective tool for conserving the remaining wilderness areas, but it depends on careful management and travellers behaving responsibly. As much as possible we wish to involve local people in various tasks as we believe that the more they benefit from nature tourism, the more they will help preserve the natural areas and wildlife.

During your treks it is advised to take the litter out of the natural area and deposit it in appropriate spaces wherever possible, but we would appreciate everyone to carry any litter with them during the long active trekking in the mountains when all the travellers, including professional guides and technical support staff, will carry their own backpacks.

Although we encourage everyone to visit Romanian caving areas, we would like to remind to all possible visitors that our efforts are to maintain the caves as intact as possible with the least possible damage to the underground environment which is very precious. As the environment is very fragile inside the caves, there are very strict rules in allowing the visitors to touch the fragile limestone formations or deposits formed such as: Dripstones (Straws, Stalactites, Stalagmites, Columns or Pillars); Flowstone (Shawls); Pore Deposits (Helictites, Cave Corals) and Pool Deposits (Rimstone, Dogtooth Spar, Cave Pearls, Lily Pads or Shelfstone).
