Discover 50 routes to eco-friendly travel around the world.

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. Eco Tourism will guide you to places you can visit on foot, like the Jura Crest Trail (Switzerland) and Shin-etsu Trail (Japan), in a canoe or kayak like Abel Tasman National Park (Australia), on horseback like Monte Catria (Italy) and Yellowstone-Bechler River Trail (USA), or by bike such as the Lofoten Islands (Norway) and Tauern Cycle Trail (Austria). Each chapter in this book will provide useful travel directions, schematic maps, information on routes to follow, and tips for travelling in an environmentally sustainable way (from equipment to the locations of ecological facilities).
