Sustainable Tourism

Sustainable tourism is defined as “tourism that respects both local people and the traveller, cultural heritage and the environment”. It seeks to provide people with an exciting and educational holiday that is also of benefit to the people of the host country.

All tourism activities of whatever motivation; holidays, adventure travel; business and ecotourism, need to be sustainable.

 

What we do
We are more than a local company. We are a project.

 

We care…
Demavend Travel takes good care of its customers but also cares about local people.
We respect and take care of the environment and want to give something to local communities.
We help improving the living standards of Turkish villagers by offering them quality jobs with long term contracts and purchasing most of our goods in their local businesses. We promote local products and support the shops in the villages.

 

The nature and local culture in Turkey is astonishing and that’s how we want to keep it for the future generations. So, the environment is also an important partner for us that we approach with the respect that it deserves.
We try to establish a suitable balance between the environmental, economic and socio-cultural aspects of tourism. We also try to play an important role in conserving the nature and biodiversity.
We visit authentic communities, discover unknown places, contact with local people, learn about ancient traditions and experience local life.

 

We care and we want to do more…
We bridge people by organising customized intercultural learning trips and we support the local community by organising Voluntourism trips for international students.

We organise and support local projects
– Renovation of village schools
– Donation of school equipment 
– Donation of old office computers to schools
– Renovation of village houses

 

We create positive cultural contact based on mutual respect between tourists and Turkish people.
