I travel sustainable!
Switzerland is a beautiful country, but as far as Arosa is concerned, it is absolutely stunning with its lakes, ski slopes, and astounding trails. It has a beautiful Alpine resort village in the Schanfigg Valley, which is also the home to Hotel Valsana. The USP of the place is that it is an energy recovery system which uses excess heat energy. Also, there are a number of other resorts in the village which have electric car charging points.
This region in the northeast of Spain is well-known for its beach resorts and it is also the region to bag the Biosphere Responsible Tourism certification by the UNESCO and the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). Also, all the previous coal, lead, and salt mines in the region are now proper cultural and environmental areas.
There is another attraction – the Cardona Salt Mountain Cultural Park, and this offers tourists a chance to dive deep into the region’s unique natural geology.
Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
This one is a remote volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean and will provide you with the best possible scenario away from the constant chatter and humdrum of city life. Also, the eco-friendly surroundings will gladden your heart and keep you yearning for so much more at all times. There is this unique Pikaia Lodge on the island which is also a carbon-neutral hotel and is made with steel, and hence, can be easily recycled. This hotel also has its own reforestation programme and the water which is supplied is acquired from rooftop rain harvesting systems.
