Sustainable tourism aims to tread lightly, offer meaningful experiences, and protect all stakeholders.
The thorny issue of transport
Global aviation accounts for 4 percent of human-induced global warming. A reduction in flights by 2.5 percent per year would halt aviation’s contribution to further warming.
Even if we can all convert only parts of our journeys from air to rail travel, that's still a win.
What is adventure travel?
Physical activity A connection to nature and the environment An immersive cultural experience
Why adventure travel is a form of sustainable tourism
Adventure travelers spend an average of $2,500 per person in the local economy, compared to just $1,100 for overnight package tourists.
