EUROLANKA organizes experiential tours that provide an authentic and unique experience of the destination, giving travelers an insight into the culture of the country.
For our trips, we choose accommodation in homestays or private guesthouses. As a result, you directly get introduced to locals and advantage forthright contact with local people. With home-made food of the hosts, you have the opportunity to interact with the locals at the common meal and will gain insights into the food culture of the country. Some of our partners, source their food from their own organic garden. For travelers who like to stay in hotels, we offer the possibility of booking their preferred hotels as well.
It would be pity to travel to a new country and not try the local food specialties. As food is a big part of any culture, we choose accommodation or restaurants with local meals on our itineraries, preferring places that cook their food from organic sources.
Local means of transport are part of the travel experience and therefore we choose public transport on certain routes. We use local transportations such as, Tuk-tuks, trains or maybe a coach. If the itinerary allows and there are convenient connections, we prefer public transport for the sake of saving the environment. If the journey by public transport becomes too cumbersome or too long, we organize private vehicles.
We want to offer our travelers an unforgettable travel experience, which also benefits the local people directly from their trip. Therefore, we choose accommodations and other service providers that are privately managed by local people and are not part of a large chain.
Thus, the respective host, guide or restaurant owner profits directly from your trip, which leads to a strengthening of the regional economy.
We want to minimize environmental footprints on our itineraries and avoid negative impacts on biodiversity. That’s why we prefer public transport in certain routes, or even the bike, when it’s deep into rural areas. We design our trips to promote intercultural exchange and local culture, while preserving the customs and culture of the country. Therefore, we refrain e.g. on actions that are frowned upon in local culture.
All these economic, ecological and social aspects we combine in our travels to create a positive contribution for travelers and hosts. We always strive to improve our travel in the direction of sustainability.
