Ökoturism: roheline reisimine perega


Ecotourism, the principle

After a decade devoted to spas and the well-being of customers, the world of travel is changing its priority and focusing its efforts on the health of the planet. A fad or a real necessity, whatever. The main thing is to know how to combine the useful with the pleasant. In other words, to visit the world without damaging it. Let luxury lovers rest assured: the 2019 green holidays are far from the “flower power” cliché of the 70s! Gîtes, farmhouses, castles, rural hotels, palaces, lodges, guest houses… There is something for all tastes and budgets. The only constants of ecotourism are its guidelines: energy saving, use of natural and biodegradable materials, development of the local ecosystem, protection of the environment, organic cuisine … A whole program that will allow future generations to know they also have the happiness of enjoying our nature.

Ecotourism in France

Lovers of terroirs and architectural splendours know it well: our Hexagon conceals many tourist treasures. Even if ecotourism is a concept that is more easily applied in developing countries than in developed countries, the French market opens up new horizons on fun, educational and cultural stays in settings that vary from the cabin wooden in a tree at a renaissance castle. Thus, the client, in a group, can during his stay live at the green time and escape by hiking or by bike, observe beavers, visit caves, learn to cook organic….

Ecotourism abroad

Far from our borders, ecotourism does not stop at discovering the natural charms of a region. In industrialized countries, the trend echoes the Kyoto agreements: reduction of CO2 production. On the other hand, in developing countries, it is above all a question of protecting the environment through tourism by giving an economic dimension to endangered nature. For example, in the Amazon or in the large African reserves, the local populations understood that ecotourism was more fruitful than hunting. As a result, gorillas in Rwanda are protected and ecotourism finances the work of forest guards.
