The Netherlands is another eco-responsible tourist place with its 15,000 km of cycle paths in Europe. The focus is reducing carbon emissions, air pollution, and waste in rivers. Moreover, the capital of the country: Amsterdam, was elected the 5th most environmentally friendly city in Europe. There are also more bikes than cars inside the city. This destination makes you dream with its long bike rides along the canals of the country or the beautiful walks in the small alleys. Switzerland, located in the heart of the Alps, is also embarking on eco-responsible tourism with projects that go in this direction, including 1200 km of cycle paths to discover its incomparable beauty or rental offers to revitalize isolated Alpine regions. In Portugal, tourists are attracted by its coastline, historic architecture, and its heritage of the maritime empire. The country has adopted a policy of optimizing water management, waste, and the elimination of single-use plastic. Among the outermost regions of the European Union is the Azores, with its exceptional fauna. This archipelago of nine islands is located more than 1,000 km off the coast of Portugal in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The spectacle is breathtaking, with mountains, lush valleys, volcanoes, waterfalls, and hot springs. Then, the fauna is magnificent, with whales, dolphins, and rare birds that are preserved. On the Azores Islands, locals and travelers must respect the environment, and there are no seaside resorts in this destination. You should also know that the food is mainly of local and organic origin. Australia stands proudly as an incredibly eco-friendly destination in the planet's southern hemisphere. For many years, it has been fighting against carbon emissions, and today a good part of the energy comes from solar, wind, and geothermal sources. This country allows tourists to discover its splendid barrier reef, Gondwana rainforest, and Fraser Island. Palau is a little further in the Pacific Ocean but is paradisiacal and eco-friendly. This republic has more than 200 volcanic and coral islands surrounded by clear waters and abundant marine species. To observe them, you have to snorkel or dive. The forests on the various islands have remained almost intact, and the beaches are immaculately white. In Palau, it is forbidden to fish in the reefs, thus making this destination eco-friendly. For a slight detour in America, you must go to Costa Rica to enjoy an eco-friendly place. It is one of the first countries in the world to adopt the ecotourism movement. Thus, it protects all its national parks and biological reserves. In Costa Rica, more than twelve ecosystems represent about 5% of the world's biodiversity.

In North America, you must linger on the Canadian side to enjoy dense forests, exceptional lakes, or incredible national parks.

Then head for Central Asia and, more precisely, Mongolia, a destination that divides its territory between mountains and steppes.The population's way of life is traditionally nomadic since the inhabitants are mostly herding farmers. Tourists are immersed in the locals' lives because nomadic herders host them. Thus, they can participate in the nomadic life of livestock while discovering local customs and life in yurts. In West Africa, Benin is a country highly focused on sustainable, respectful, and eco-responsible tourism. In the country, the protection of the environment is honored by the project of reintegration of rhinoceros in Pendjari Park. There is also the preservation of Beninese culture and its promotion among tourists. In the Indian Ocean, it is unthinkable not to visit the island of Reunion, located east of Madagascar. A large part of the island is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site between volcanoes, tropical forests, and beaches.
