Enthralling yet ‘ethical’ holidays
One of the key ingredients of an Inntravel holiday is the opportunity to get ‘under the skin’ of the region you are visiting, and this is exactly what community tourism is all about. Staying in accommodation that is managed by the community, and exploring with a local guide, you are immersed in local life, and gain unique – not to mention privileged – insights into age-old practices and customs. What makes the experience all the more rewarding is the knowledge that these are ‘ethical’ holidays which directly benefit the villagers by bringing employment and a much needed extra source of income, as well as reducing depopulation. Getting the most out of our sustainable holidays Our sustainable holidays take you to remote corners where little English is spoken and life plays out to an altogether different rhythm. So that you can take full advantage of the unique experiences on offer, we provide your party with its own trained, English-speaking local guide who will accompany you as you explore and happily act as interpreter as he introduces you to his fellow villagers. Thus, you may find yourselves being given an ad-hoc lesson in rope weaving, joining in a game with the village children, or harvesting fruit on a smallholding – some of the unforgettable encounters that make community tourism so special.
