Birgit Hoffmann dk-ferien travel agency
The holiday home agency dk-ferien focuses on Danish cottages where German travelers can find relaxation far from the hustle and bustle of the cities in harmony with nature. We provide our customers with advice concerning power-saving, provide them with information on responsible seal watching and fishing, inform about waste sorting in Denmark and try to organise most arrivals on days with few traffic jams. We personally know all of the houses of our portfolio, describe them in detail and try to meet all of our customers' wishes.

Insects pollinate around 80% of our native crops and wild plants and make a major contribution to the preservation of biodiversity. In the frame of our new joint project dk-ferien is committed to the protection of insects, especially bees. The project aims on strengthening the awareness of holidaymakers and guests for the importance of insects and bees for our ecosystem as well as for their protection.
Reducing the plastic waste generated by tourism and improving the recycling of unavoidable plastic waste on Balearic Islands – these are the goals of the industry project "Plastic-free holidays on the Balearic Islands" the Futouris members are implementing together with the Government of the Balearic Islands.
Watching seals in the wild, on the beach or on sandbanks is a very special holiday experience. Holidaymakers can do this at the Danish coasts of the Baltic Sea and North Sea almost all year round. In order to protect these cute little sea creatures from the impact of tourism it is important to follow some crucial rules of conduct.
Where does the food that is offered on the buffet come from, how is it produced, is the food on my plate typical for the country? These are questions inwhich more and more travelers are interested.
Food waste measurements in the participating hotel are carried out in cooperation with United Against Waste e.V. and their waste analysis tool. Based on the findings, a set of recommendations will be developed to promote a more responsible handling of food.
The projects aims at sensitizing german speaking anglers and tourists with the development of a sustainable fishing manual in order to preserve danish fish stocks.
