As leaders in this relatively new sector of tourism in post-war BiH we see ourselves as the pioneers of a movement that will set the stage for real sustainable development.
Our focus is on the rural and high mountain communities whose populations have been severely depleted due to the war and lack of social and economic means of survival. By sustainable we mean two things: preserving the ancient traditions that have allowed generation after generation to maintain good lifestyles and ecology harmony; and to introduce new, modern methods of eco-tourism, farming, scientific research, and other economic endeavors that will not drastically change their traditional ways and allow them to maintain families and community growth.
