Ecotourism is a form of tourism involving visiting undisturbed natural areas. Typically ecotourism involves travelling to destinations where flora, fauna, and cultural heritage are the primary attractions.
Travellers who prefer to be immersed in nature rather than surrounded by buildings, cars and people, would usually head to ecotourism destinations.
Sweden, like New Zealand, has been declared as one of the world’s top ecotourism destinations. Indeed, the country presents several ‘green spots’ that offer tourists an insight on the impact of humans on the environment, fostering a greater appreciation of our natural habitats.
