Ecotourism travel focuses on the discovery of a natural or wildlife habitat in a manner that maximizes local economic and social goals, and reduces the possibility of environmental degradation.
Ecotourism is about preserving ecosystems, educating visitors about conservation, empowering localities, operating sustainable tourist attractions – and, most of all, having fun, unique and green travel experiences!
Over the last two decades, the term ecotourism has been incorrectly equated to other types of tourism including green travel, sustainable travel, cultural travel, adventure travel, responsible travel, eco friendly travel, and nature tourism.
We only list true ecotour operators that have dedicated nature and wildlife eco vacations, established energy and wildlife conservation policies, commitment to host destination economic prosperity, and adherence to environmental standards as set forth by recognized third parties.
Greenloons makes it easy to connect people with meaningful and unique nature-based travel experiences all over the world.
Because we only work with independently eco-certified tour operators and sustainable tourism accommodation providers, these vacations not only offer distinction and quality in pristine natural surroundings, but they have also been independently verified as focusing on the triple bottom line of economic viability, social empowerment, and environmental responsibility.
Greenloons offers eco conscious travelers, as well as other nature and wildlife enthusiasts, with a one-stop shop for trusted information about responsible, sustainable, and certified eco vacations both in the U.S. and internationally.
It is the only website that recommends authentic ecotours led by third-party certified ecotour operators and brings transparency to the different ecotourism certification standards.
