Developed in the late 80’s, the eco-tourist approach is characterized by a twofold concern for the places visited and the well-being of the people who live there.
The means of eco-sustainable transport can be diverse: a canoe or kayak, a bicycle, a horse or mule… even our own legs!
You may say the same for accommodation facilities: hotels, bed and breakfasts, farmhouses that are keen on recycling, using renewable energy sources and meeting the criteria to be a green-building.
