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.

Holiday companies are springing up all over the web to feed this new and growing interest in Green or Clean holidays, as more and more people are looking to decrease their carbon footprint, not only at home, but when they travel.

According to a recent report realized by booking.com, in the future more travellers will choose eco sustainable trips!
