Ecotourism In Sardinia

On a changing planet, it’s important to tread lightly when we can. Putting the word eco in front of tourism is a small but profound change. It opens new opportunities for conscientious travel. More and more people of an eco-conscious nature, are looking to enjoy their holidays in the sun while minimizing their effect on the natural environment, and culture.  

The opportunities that arise often bring us back to a more straightforward way of life, though giving us all that we require from a holiday. In Sardinia, the environment has in large stayed protected for thousands of years. Sardinians have always lived closely with nature, safeguarding their land, and praying for a good harvest. 

Sardinia is growing as a desired holiday destination in Europe. Tourism is an excellent avenue for creating future employment for an island deep in recession, but an environmental cost often lurks behind popular tourist destinations. I believe Sardinia can offer some of the best ecotourism in Europe, centred on the traditions, and ancestry of Sardinia.

I have handpicked some of the best sustainable travel experiences in Sardinia. From here you will be able to find all sorts of ecotourism experiences in Sardinia. 

Ecotourism is…

“responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education” 

– The International Ecotourism Society

Ecotourism Is Great For Sardinia And You

Throughout Sardinia, you can find many types of ecotourism, showcasing the most authentic side of the island. Ecotourism is a responsible way of travelling, that doesn’t exploit the natural environment or the culture of Sardinia. The grassroots nature of ecotourism directly supports the local people.

Ecotourism offers the most memorable experiences in Sardinia, exploring many of the hidden gems across Sardinia. Such as walking tours, cooking classes, cycling tours, and archaeology tours. Sardinia is astoundingly beautiful in all corners welcoming you to explore. 

Finding a balance between environmental protection, and sustainable, but constant growth is a necessary step for the future of the Sardinian economy. Fortunately, on the island, there’s a wealth of ancient sites, preserved culture, and beautiful nature. The tourism industry in Sardinia is becoming aware of this, and each day, many more entrepreneurs are creating ecotourism excursions & events, for the benefit of all.

Sardinia is a place beyond time. I visited the island for the first time over five years ago to volunteer on a farm. Now, I am living in the United Kingdom, working in regenerative agriculture, and education. Eevery time I have a holiday it will be in Sardinia. And maybe one day I will be able to combine my passions for agriculture and Sardinia together once again. Thanks for reading the article I hope it was useful to you.
