Everyone is more aware of the impact of everyday things having an effect on the earth and the local environment. More and more people are being green and because of this eco-tourism has now evolved. Eco-tourism is a type of special interest holiday, where tourists are more aware of the impacts they have on the Earth. They try to reduce waste etc by taking holidays that are new, different and helpful to the cause. Eco friendly special interest holidays can educate the traveller or further their knowledge as well as help to raise funds for ecological conservation. With these types of holidays becoming popular it also raises awareness of the importance and causes to others that many have not thought about before these unique holidays. Many people were not aware of the damage caused to some areas because of mass tourism and eco tourism holidays address this issue.
Taking a holiday is a time when you try new things, enjoy yourself and live out your dreams. Special Interest Holidays could be anything from conquering a monumental mountain, indulging in whisky or wine tasting or even becoming one with the wildlife. Activities have become a major part of holidays and many opt for at least one activity during their holiday and it is also possible to try a number of activities as well. Combine all your loves and interests together and tailor your holiday to exactly the way you want it. There are no rules with special interest holidays; it is up to you and what you like. You don’t have to go far for one of these holidays as there are many on offer throughout the UK, Ireland and the rest of Europe. With eco-tourism taking off, many tour operators and holiday centers are embracing it and offering environmentally friendly holidays for all interests.
