Guide to EcoTourism

If you have a passion for adventure, want to explore the world and have experiences you have always imagined up until now, then ecotourism might be just right for you.

What is ecotourism? According to the International Ecotourism Society (TIES) it is “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.”

The Society goes on to list the 6 principles of ecotourism:

  • Minimize impact
  • Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect.
  • Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts.
  • Provide direct financial benefits for conservation.
  • Provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people.
  • Raise sensitivity to host countries’ political, environmental, and social climate.
