Sustainable tourism & travel takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities. Sustainable travelling aims to reduce the negative impact of tourism while increasing the benefits. This includes: protecting natural environments and animal welfare and managing tourist activities and numbers. One of the primary goals of sustainable travel is to help conserve the amount and quality of natural resources, preserve cultures, and protect destinations for future generations of travellers. For years, Green Visions is committed to this goal.
Green Visions Mission Statement
This is our home, and we love to make visitors welcome.
For more than two decades, Green Visions has been organizing walking and biking tours, pioneering new activities and creating adventurous itineraries. We believe that a holiday is most rewarding when it provides you with an insight into the local culture while treading lightly upon the earth. That’s why we named our travel company Green Visions.
We are committed to a sustainable future and to improving the social, economic and environmental well-being of the community. We are dedicated to environmental improvements that foster a sustainable future and lead to social and economical improvements in the community we do business.
Your trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Western Balkans won’t just provide you with fantastic photos and memorable stories. You’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing your contribution has helped support economic development and environmental protection in the region.
