Holidays & Travel – Ecotourism or Clean holidaying is about minimising your impact on your holiday destination as well as how you choose to travel there.

Our carbon footprint has been increasing exponentially as travel has become a common occurrence rather than an annual treat.

Eco tourism is a form of tourism involving visiting fragile, pristine, and relatively undisturbed natural areas, as an alternative to standard commercial mass tourism. And it is on the rise. More and more consumers are choosing holidays that have a minimal (or at least less) impact on the environment.

There are plenty of examples of ways you can holiday with your family if you want to be mindful of the environment as you go. It can be something as simple as choosing a walking tour when you go away. Check out www.ecotourism.ie. As well as destination suggestions, they give you some great practical advice for your trip.
