Travelling sustainably: Lonely Planet’s guide to not killing the earth while you holiday

Man airport plane travel

Think off-grid camps, community stays, responsible wildlife encounters, cultural immersion tours, conservation opportunities, green hotels and more, the new guide book by Lonely Planet, available this March, has the Earth’s back.

“While the global tourism industry has made great strides towards sustainability in recent years, achieving sustainable tourism is a continuous process,”¬†Lonely Planet¬†says.

“This process is reflected in our book. When we asked travel writers from around the globe to tell us about their favourite sustainable travel accommodation and experiences, their top picks covered the spectrum of sustainability. Some options had sustainability at heart from conception, while others have made a concerted effort to improve. What unites them, is a commitment to enacting positive change.”

How to use the book…

There’re five chapters, each alongside a theme of escape: Nature, Relaxation, Culture, Urban and Learning.

Within each chapter, the profiles are labelled with the key sustainability features you can enjoy while staying at the hotel or participating in the tour.

Check it all out and get your own at the Lonely Planet website.
