2Poland Adventure is for those who wish to discover the real Poland, away from the well-trodden tourist trials and high-rise resorts. Our extensive knowledge of the country enables us to offer original tour itineraries and to show you the best Poland can offer . We'll give you a real insight into the country you are visiting – culture, history, landscape, natural world – and provide the opportunity for genuine interaction with the local people and fruits of their hard labour.
All prices are fully inclusive of transport, accommodation, meals and activities. Additional costs are transportation to-from Poland and visa’s (if applicable) as well as tips which are only up to You. There are no single person supplements or hidden extras.
All our tours are fully guided in English.
You travel with your own equipment, however we are ready to prepare it for You as well (bicycle rental, climbing equipment, etc.) - it might be extra cost though, depending on the tour.
TRAVELLERS CODE OF CONDUCT
As we participate in the Responsible Travel project, we encourage You to get familiar with the following:
- we care about water and the wildlife. Don't waste it. Whenever possible keep it in refill containers instead of plastic bottles.
- all the waste keep with yourself until you find a dust bin.
- as You will be getting into the wild nature area, please do not disturb animals You could meet.
- when camping always keep your surroundings clean, never leave any waste
- treat local people with respect, just like you would like to be treated by them. Poles are extremely friendly, but they get angry very quickly when offended
- buying at local shops and producers, You feed the local economy - that's the best way to get fine souvenirs from the trip.
WHAT ARE THE MINIMUM CRITERIA OF RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL WE MEET?
Local agents carry out administrative tasks wherever practicable in Poland. Tour leaders live in Poland and contribute full time to the local economies.
We use local service providers (canoe, ski and bicycle rental, camping and guest housing, small hotels)
Tours, wherever possible, will visit places 'off the beaten tourist trails', thus bringing associated economic benefits to those areas. Tours make use of small family-run guesthouses or locally owned hotels, small restaurants and food stalls, and the production printed matter is completely undertaken in Poland.
2Poland contributes financial assistance to local operators and to local charities
Full and comprehensive details of tours are available in paper-free form on our website, including a PDF version of the brochure. Our office is located at the low cost city area which reduces all running spendings. We also work remotely from our places which lets us reduce energy waste. We use recycled and recyclable materials wherever possible.
Waste segregation is compulsory in Poland, so whenever we use plastic bottles or other tools we have to dump them to proper bins. Poland is our home, so we just simply care about it.
2Poland uses, where available, biodegradable or reusable containers for packed lunches on all tours. Refillable bottles are used to transport water while trekking.
All passengers are educated about the fragility of the ecosystems that we visit and are asked to behave accordingly. Our experienced guides provide any necessary clarification of appropriate behavior. Trekking passengers are told to bring plastic zip-lock bags in which to keep used toilet paper for disposal at an appropriate point.
On our website we provide a basic advisory about Poland’s culture, wildlife and customs in form of FAQs. We are eager to extend any of them if asked by email, phone or chat.
We also provide continuous advise during the trips.
As a company we support CARITAS organization which is the most effective charity organization in Poland, which recently is strongly engaged in rebuilding the society in Syria and Mozambique.
We also encourage our travellers to make souvenir purchases in local markets and curious rather than larger corporately own establishments.
