Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Tour Operators - this is something that the existing owners only recently started to explore / on-board. Foreign Travelers LOVE authentic experiences.

Competition / Market:

Competes with smaller cabin owners in the area. Only one that's professionally run that also offers meals to our international guests.
