Environmental etiquette
for trip participants, individual travellers and nature photographers

First rule: Relax and enjoy!!!


General rules


Help your guides and porters to follow conservation measures.

Respect Animals - In National Parks and wilderness areas the animals are wild. Harassment can cause stress; keep your distance! In some situations animals can catch human diseases which can be fatal.

When taking photographs of locals, respect privacy - ask permission and use restraint.

Respect Holy and sacred places, Churches- preserve what you have come to see, never touch or remove religious objects. Shoes sometimes should be removed when visiting orthodox monasteries.

Giving to children encourages begging: adonation to a project, health centre or school is a more constructive way to help. GreenEye ask you don't give any money for children!

You will be accepted and welcomed if you follow local customs in remote areas where people still lives on their traditional way: loose, light weight clothes are preferable to revealing shorts, skimpy tops and tight fitting action wear.

Visitors who value local traditions, encourage local pride and maintain local cultures. Please help local people gain a realistic view of life in Western Countries.

Stay on track - Unsupervised off road driving can cause irreparable damage to the soil and vegetation, all for the sake of that once in a lifetime sho.

In many areas, trekking and climbing are popular leisure activities. By carefully keeping to marked paths and routes, human impact can be kept to a minimum.

Remove litter, burn or bury paper and carry out all non-degradable litter.

Keep local water clean and avoid using pollutants such as detergents in streams or springs. If no toilet facilities are available, make sure you are at least 30 metres away from water sources; and bury or cover waste.

Plants and any animals should be left to flourish in their natural environment - taking/collectingis illegal in many parts of the world: also remember the trade in many wildlife products is strictly illegal.

Communities should benefit from tourism

Local involvement in the planning of tourism helps to ensure that tourism addresses environmental and cultural concerns. This should maximise benefits and minimise damage to communities. It should also enhance the quality of the tourism experience

Seek and support local community involvement and partnership in tourism. Buy locally made products and handicraft.

Promote the recruitment; training, and employment in tourism of local people. To choose accomodation owned, built and staffed by local people whenever available.

Tourism should be educational

When tourists learn about communities and the environment, tourism provides the most benefits for all concerned and does the least damage. Knowledge and a positive experience enable töurists to act as ambassadors for environmental protection.

To provide information about environmental, cultural, and social issues as an essential part of résponsible tourism.

We provide our clients with specific information, lectures and written material about the regions to be visited, its special characteristics like climate, species, habitats, its global significancé as well as appropriate behaviour.
