An eco adventure is how we combine being environmentally responsible with challenging and fun escapades. Destinations and activities can range from desert marathons to rafting the Grand Canyon to Everest Base Camp expeditions, and everything in between.
Here are 5 eco adventures that we recommend…
Wim Hof Retreat at Alladale Estate in the Highlands of Scotland
The world famous Wim Hof (a.k.a. The Ice Man) Method is based on three pillars: cold therapy, breathing and commitment. What could be better than immersing yourself in the wilderness whilst embarking on your own personal, mindfulness journey?
Take a Raft Trip Down the Grand Canyon
Perhaps not for the faint hearted, but what better way to see how 2 billion years of evolution has carved out the most famous red rock on the planet?
A Trip to the Island of Vanuatu
According to Lonely Planet, you’ll be met by deserted beaches, ancient culture and world class diving. But what makes Vanuatu an eco adventure, I hear you ask? Well, the island is the first place in the world to completely ban single use plastic!
One of the most stunning places to visit on earth; we would thoroughly recommend visiting Iby’Iwacu Cultural Village (which employs hundreds of former poachers). “The land of a thousand hills” has come a long way since the 1994 genocide: the benefits of ecotourism include fueling political stabilization, dramatic infrastructure improvements, and impressive economic growth.
Voted as one of the happiest countries to live in, Norway is also one of the greenest. No less than eight tourist attractions have been certified as sustainable by the International Sustainable Tourism Initiative.
