Responsible, local, authentic: the new vision of travel

If you want to travel more responsibly and escape the hustle and bustle, take a look at the undiscovered regions of the following continents.

12 November 2021

Once around the world: more and more countries around the world are opening their doors to travelers again. The risk of crowded beaches and sights in many popular destinations is thus also back on the agenda. For a responsible journey , undiscovered regions offer equally wonderful experiences away from the usual tourist attractions, allowing for a completely new way of travelling. Discovering local traditions and culture in Greek Epirus or traditional crafts in incomparable nature in Argentina - the possibilities are endless. Individual travel specialist Evaneos helps travellers plan a tailor-made tour far away from mass tourism and impersonal experiences at the expense of the local population and the environment.


Unexplored Epirus: Experience Greek culture first hand

Fantastic beaches, hilly islands and fresh olives - Greece is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. Away from the classic tourist destinations like Crete, Rhodes and Athens, the country in Southern Europe still offers unknown places far away from mass tourism. The northwest of the country impresses with Greek traditions and authentic culture. The region of Epirus, which can be visited all year round, is ideal for travellers who want to discover the original Greece in a unique manner. With breathtaking mountain ranges, historically significant sites, long sandy beaches and traditional villages with natural stone houses, the area combines impressive natural beauty with valuable cultural heritage. Stops at the ancient cities of Kassope, Nikopolis and the mystical springs of Acheron, as well as a visit to the labyrinth of the former oracle of the dead, Nekromanteion, are a must.

Magical South Africa: On the trail of Nelson Mandela

As a leading South African activist and the first black president, Nelson Mandela made history. On a unique tour of South Africa from Johannesburg to Cape Town via Chintsa and Robben Island, travelers follow in the footsteps of his work and visit historic sites in the life of the legend, including the township of Alexandria or Lilieslief Farm. The arrest site in Howick is also among the most significant stops. The tracks continue by rental car through breathtaking nature over the Sani Pass to Lesotho. Green hilly landscapes, wild banana trees and vineyards characterise the route. The visit to the idyllic seaside resort of Qunu, where Nelson Mandela grew up and is buried, is one of the highlights of the theme tour and, in addition to a wealth of information about the activist's life, delights with endless white sandy beaches.

Original Argentina: Traditional crafts and centuries-old customs

After a long time, Argentina is also opening its doors to travellers again. Especially the north of the country is less touristy and perfect for a unique trip on the trail of local culture and exciting traditions. A fiery tango evening in Buenos Aires as a prelude after arrival or looking over the shoulders at traditional crafts, such as the production of goat cheese - unforgettable moments with locals are guaranteed on the tailor-made tours. Those looking for a special nature experience will find it on a trip to the small town of Cachi. Through Cardones National Park, you'll pass the Inca Trail and the Recta Tin Tin, a dead-straight stretch of road. With a bit of luck, travelers will encounter a herd of llamas grazing among cacti on the Andean plateau.
