Guiding Principles for Naturefriends Houses
In the course of almost one hundred years, Naturefriends have built more than 1000 houses.
The spectrum extends from rustic mountain shelters to Naturefriends hotels. The present Guiding Principles set out the objectives pursued with our activities in the ‘houses sector’ and serve a common internal and external ap- proach. Naturefriends houses are identifiable by the Naturefriends logo and name.
