Tell Us About Zzuum & Its Ethos
Zzuum started as a group of outdoor lovers who enjoy spending time cycling and exploring nature. It has become a serious business, but we are still the same curious and active bunch who want to show all the beauty of this region, nature, and people to everyone.
We create experiences and not just the products for our clients; we offer them places, activities, and tours that we are ourselves are in love with. That way, customers become friends and family, and that’s just the way we like things to be.
How Do You Feel About Travel And Tourism Given The Current Situation?
Travel and tourism are impacted heavily, and the struggle will last for years to come, but the “good thing” about this situation is that tourist destinations in Croatia, as all other business subjects involved, can set a new direction or “reset” and I hope that they will keep in mind that mass tourism isn’t the answer to our problems.
We have a beautiful region which so much diversity so the best thing we could do is to offer only top quality products with an individual approach to our future guests, which will keep them in the destination as much possible.
That kind of tourism won’t have such a negative effect on the local community as much as mass tourism, and we believe that this is the key to high quality and sustainable tourism.
How Will Your Business Adapt To New Measures, Social-Distancing & Safety?
Our holiday packages, as well as our daily tours, are custom made and for individual clients or small groups so we can say social distancing & safety won’t be a problem for us.
All of the bikes and cycling equipment are disinfected after each use, as per instructions of the Civil Protection Headquarters. Keeping a social distance when on a bike isn’t a problem, we are always in the fresh air, and we keep our distance from each other at all times.
Why Should Guests Choose To Come To The Zadar Region?
Where else can you find the sea, a mountain, lake, and rivers in a relatively small region such as this?
This diversity of the region’s natural beauty alone is enough to attract people, not to mention numerous outdoor activities that you can try, great homemade food, and local people. What more do you need to forget everyday stress and charge your batteries?
