Meridien Ten’s mission statement, ideas and views on adventure travel

balote

Adventure travel is one of the biggest, if not the biggest growing segment of modern travelling.
Adventure travel companies are booming and every year there are thousands of new companies offering various soft or hard adventures. We can easily say it is becoming a cliché in the modern travel business – an adventure travel company!

So, why choosing Meridien Ten as your adventure travel outfitter in Croatia? Let us tell you a little bit about our philosophy, mission statement, ideas and us.

Meridien Ten is based in Split, Croatia. We have been around for many years – it is the continuation of a fourth generation of family travel business tradition, but the company’s beginnings were not about having an adventure travel agency.

What does adventure travel mean to Meridien Ten?

It is a great alternative to traditional (bus or boat cruise) travel.
It is sustainable, active and healthy travel.
It offers immersion in the local culture.
It gives you a chance to taste, smell and fully discover the region you travel to.

So, actually it is not all about extreme kayaking down the rivers, extra long cycling distances, very technical 35 km mountain biking trail, dangerous canyoning or mountaineering in the cold.

Our adventure travel is more oriented towards discovering the region and all its parts in a unique and healthy way. The travelers can smell the flowers and herbs, taste the olive oil or other local products an old lady will offer you along the way, meet the fishermen and learn about life with and on the sea, pick some fresh grapes while cycling along the wine roads in September.

These are some of the experiences one cannot get while traveling on a cruise ships or fully explore behind the wheel of a car or from the bus window.

The Meridien Ten team is a small team, but we all share similar interests and have the same passion for such authentic adventures – from our mechanic, who is a veteran champion in cyclo-cross and a passionate mountain biker to the guides who are sometimes maybe even happier than our guests to be on the Dalmatian islands, cycling or hiking and meeting the locals.

There is another, but very important note, maybe a fundamental one, from many people’s point of view. Traveling is very important for modern-time people. It is not just a perfect getaway to a new and unknown. It is also a time when families, relatives and friends get together again, “recharge their batteries” and relax from their everyday problems and duties. To be honest, we know that most of the adventure travel companies can book luxury hotels for you, organize special dinners and wine tastings, get you on the bike and guide you on the road. But can they provide personalized services tailored to the neds of each client?

The way Meridien Ten team sees travel business is quite simple – each of our guests has to be treated in the same way and in the way we would all like to be treated when on holidays in a new and unknown destination. Meridien Ten is striving to provide unique local experience, carefree holidays that recharge and refresh, and provide our travelers with memories from Croatia that will last forever and hopefully make a world a better place.Our philosophy is very simple, so we will describe it in a few, simple sentences.

Being travellers ourselves, we are here to show you the best Croatia has to offer, in a unique, local and authentic way. We at Meridien Ten love to spend time outdoors, we love nature and enjoy good food. Our passion was channeled through professional ways and now we make living out of it.
Being environmentally aware, we offer small group tours, thus minimizing the impact on locals and our nature, but at the same time maximizing local experience and satisfaction of our guests.

Simply said, our guests are treated as they are our friends and we are showing them the most beautiful and interesting parts of Croatia, in a professional and our way!

Happy travels,

Meridien Ten
