WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL?

Sustainable travel is about making choices on the road that minimize the negative social, environmental and economic impacts of your visit. Below is a simple guide to sustainable travel.

  • Avoiding the exploitation of animals

  • Buying locally produced food

  • Minimising waste (reduce, reuse, recycle)

  • Being mindful of limited resources, including water and energy

  • Choosing public transport where available

  • Staying in locally owned accommodation

  • Carbon offsetting those unavoidable long-haul flights
