Ecotourism is traveling to captivating eco-friendly destinations with conserved natural environments and wildlife. Wild Ark Travel offers ecotourism with thrilling adventures to the most exotic destinations in the world. They give tourists the opportunity to directly benefit the people and places they visit by supporting conservation and contributing to protect the cultural heritage and economic development.
Here are a few eco-friendly destinations;
- The Blue Mountains, Australia
The Blue Mountains is a rugged mountainous terrain west of Sydney in New South Wales, composed of 7 national parks and 8 conservation reserves stretching across 2.5 million acres. This region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has an incredible combination of heathland, canyons and rainforests, with the most exotic plants and an abundance of fascinating animals and birds.
The Blue Mountains got its name from the natural blue haze produced by its extensive eucalyptus forest. The distinct blue color is formed by tiny droplets of oil released from the abundant eucalyptus trees combined with the water vapor and sunlight.
- Sian Ka’an, Tulum, Mexico
Sian Ka’an is a Biosphere Reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986. Situated on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in México, this reserve is so pristine and biodiverse, and home to thousands of flora and fauna species. Sian Ka’an is also the largest protected area in the Mexican Caribbean with so many eco-friendly activities such as exploring the Mayan ruins, diving in the deep cenotes, swimming in the Caribbean, or just laying on the soft white sandy beaches.
Cenotes are natural crystalline sinkholes formed by the collapse of the ceiling of limestone caves, exposing spectacular turquoise freshwaters of underground pools.
Belize is an ideal eco-friendly destination for adventurers, with some of the best locations for scuba diving, kayaking and snorkeling. The Great Blue Hole, an underwater sinkhole off the coast of Belize, is a perfect circle that is 480 feet deep and over 1,000 feet wide. This hole is a diver’s paradise with over 500 rare plants and animals found only in this area.
- St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
St. John, located in the Virgin Islands, U.S., has 2/3 of its island protected as national park lands. This island is a nature lover’s dream with many exciting activities such as snorkeling, sailing, scuba diving, hiking and much more, or just relaxing on the pure sand of one of the most breathtaking beaches.
