Eco-Journeys: The World Guide to Ecologically Aware Travel and Adventures

  • Noble Press, Chicago, 1992

Sure to be the definitive resource for environmentally conscious travelers everywhere, Eco-Journeys gives lively, detailed descriptions of over one hundred eco-travel destinations worldwide. From exploring the Amazon by dugout canoe to dogsledding in remote Minnesota, from hiking New Mexico's Gila Wilderness to challenging the rugged slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, Eco-Journeys contains trips for everyone for whom the word "vacation" means more than a trip to the local amusement part or two uninterrupted weeks in front of the TV.

Eco-Journeys is for people who want to get the most of of a wilderness vacation, but who are aware of the devastating impact irresponsible travel can have on wildlife and the environment. The book includes only environmentally responsible tours that promote ecological awareness as well as fun and adventure. Some tours even allow hands-on participation in local conservation efforts, such as researching dolphins in Belize or tracking grizzlies in Alaska.

The book is divided into six sections based on comfort level (including trips for people with physical disabilities), so you can easily find the eco-journey that best suits you. Each listing describes the tone of a particular journey, outlines its general agenda, and gives details on accommodations and other practical information.
