Ecotourism was one of the biggest travel trends of the last decade and its popularity promises to continue as this new decade begins. Greece, one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, experienced high levels of pollution as a result of tourism in the past. With a local population proud of the country’s delicate beauty and natural resources, Greece strongly promotes a more Earth-friendly brand of tourism to protect and preserve the environment.
Ecotourism Greece is an organization that partners with local tourism-related businesses to offer eco-friendly tours and experiences all across the country. The organization’s core values include respecting the environment and supporting local communities, cultures and traditions. Essentially, they provide adventurous visitors with an opportunity to explore the real Greece without causing unnecessary damage to the fragile environment so it may be respected and conserved for future generations to continue to flourish and enjoy.
The organization arranges tours and also links users with local green hotels that follow eco-friendly practices. No matter what type of Greek experience you are looking for, you can find it here, ranging from climbing excursions on Mount Pelion and sailing trips along the ancient trade routes of the Aegean Sea. Hikes, eco-friendly bicycle tours and even cave explorations are all available, all of which focus on leaving a minimal carbon footprint while exploring the country’s rugged beauty. Less-vigorous activities include olive oil and wine tasting experiences along with cooking classes and honey gathering trips.
