Best Countries for Ecotourism

Hiya fellow travelers!

I hope this will get you into gear!

I love ecology and appreciate our dear Mother Nature. That is why I always seek places that reveal its original beauty.

When it comes to eco - travel, I'd always go for countries - and regions in countries that do not have overdeveloped tourism, and try to travel like a local.

So, I suggest - Croatia. Continental Croatia.

Places like

Gorski kotar


Dalmatinska Zagora




Please, share your suggestions & tips!

Happy traveling!

Great that you're so proud of your country, and sometimes it's good to have an insider's view.

Perhaps other contributors can suggest tips about their own countries. Of course, everyone's definition of echo tourism is different.

Rather pressed for time this morning, but when I do have more time I will send some recommendations for Canada.

I visited the south island of New Zealand two years ago and thought it was highly suitable for ecotourism, so much so that it is not only great for pleasure tourists but also for students studying related degree programs in university I think.

North island I am not sure but if fellow users can comment on this would be great.

Every country definitely has its own unique charm and appeal. I have seen lots of eco villages popping up recently in the lower 48, but it seems that they don't have the remote and majestic locations that gives Eco villages their unique appeal. I would highly recommend the trend of Eco villages sprouting up in Canada, more specifically, the Yukon Territory! There are very few places in the world left that has the vast expanse of untouched and raw land that is unsurpassable in beauty, but also population! Or lack thereof.

Having been to India several times, I am in strong agreement with the suggestion of Sikkim, Himachal Pradesh and Kerala. Have not been to Karnataka.

If at all possible, when going to a higher altitude such as northern HP, I would recommend taking a bus rather than flying. This may – but may not – minimize altitude sickness.
