When considering sustainable travel, it is essential to be informed about the place that is being visited, its flora and fauna and the local community. Sustainable tourism destinations rely upon the conservation of fragile ecosystems, reducing carbon footprints and celebrating local cultures and knowledge. Sharing the journey with people who are experienced, openminded and have a passion for the natural environment will embellish a love for the land and all of its striking features. Staying in accommodation which commemorates the use of locally sourced material and food products offers an enriching experience in support of both resident communities and sustainable design.
