Find out about best ecotourism practices with us.
Choose ecotourism and a destination that is off the beaten track.
When choosing your next destination, consider visiting a place where action is already being taken to improve sustainable travel. Off the beaten track, get away with the great outdoors and reduce the potential for additional litter. Visit a national park, a secluded beach, or a desert oasis.
Book an eco-hostel or an eco-friendly vacation home.
Nowadays it is more common for boutique hotels and hostels as well as vacation rentals to adopt sustainable practices for their guests. From off-grid penthouses to luxurious, eco-friendly pop-up tents in the middle of the desert, you can find a stay that offers the comfort you want but also respects the environment.
Before booking a stay, make sure that the eco-hostel or community-run property has environmentally friendly practices such as: B. limiting the use of harmful cleaning chemicals, bleach or other environmentally friendly substances. This will ensure that your vacation is safe and enjoyable for you and the environment.
Consider your means of transport.
Unfortunately, while many of us love to do jet sets around the world, air travel is one of the biggest contributors to environmental pollution each year. On your next trip, adopt slow, sustainable travel and see the world around you. Consider adding bus and train travel to your itinerary. Countries around the world are making greater efforts to improve their ground transportation and make it more comfortable and environmentally friendly to use. One of these options is adding WiFi to buses and trains, making business travel even more comfortable and sustainable. Night buses and trains even offer affordable options to make your trip budget-friendly too …
If you’re looking to explore a destination but require short air or train journeys to get there, it is best to park your car near the airport to avoid long journeys and create a larger carbon footprint. Sites like Park Fellows can find the cheapest parking spaces that can save you money for more sustainable travel and ecotourism in the future.
Skip engines, get your bike rolling!
While motorbikes and scooters are a fun form of transportation, the next trip you can rent a bike or electric scooter to get from place to place. Cycling is not only good for the environment as you reduce your carbon footprint, it is also good for your health. It’s the perfect solution for seeing a place and promoting ecotourism.
No need to worry about missing the gym as you cycle through each city. Many major cities now offer bike rentals that you can pick up, ride, and park. You can unlock a bike via a mobile app, take a walk and drop it off at the nearest bike station. Take the time to get from place to place – either by bike or with your inner engine and on foot!
Reduce your waste and the use of plastic!
When traveling, it can be difficult to resist takeaway so you can see as much as possible. To encourage sustainable travel, we encourage you to take the time to enjoy the sights and eat in local restaurants. Contributing to the local economy isn’t just good for the restaurant, it’s good for the community as a whole. Reduce your waste and use of plastic. You will leave the city even better than you found it.
Instead of souvenirs, collect postcards.
Last, but not least – remember that you are consuming gifts and souvenirs. While having trinkets from your travels is always fun, it’s a good idea to collect postcards or create a photo album.
These are just a few small changes you can make to make tourism a little bit more sustainable. As travelers, it is our responsibility to protect the planet so we can all continue to explore.
