Sustainable tourism is about re-focusing and adapting. 2017 was the year for sustainable tourism.
There are many organisations like the SImpact Travel Alliance and Sustainable Travel International, which are actively working to mobilise tourism professionals to make places best in sustainable management.
There are ten factors to measure how places are working towards sustainable development: safety, natural resources, holistic health, entrepreneurship, environmental wellness, adventure activity resources, crime, terrorism, humanitarian initiatives, cultural resources, infrastructure and image. TTW picks some of the best destinations which follow sustainable regulations and make destinations livable and green.
Faroe Islands, Denmark
Faroe Islands is truly cinematic. This destination offers sustainable fisheries, unique gastronomy and preservation of culture. Explore hidden grottos, green rolling hills and spectacular waterfalls and immerse yourself in solitude and tranquility. Located at the heart of North-East Atlantic Ocean and open on all sides, Faroe Islands creates a unique eco system. Large masses of ocean water flow constantly over the shelves and banks around the Faroes Islands, and pollutants have no chance to accumulate anywhere in the environment. This is why the sea around the Faroe Islands is so clean and fish from the Faroese shelves are the cleanest in the world. All these traits make Faroe Islands best to study marine life and ecosystems.
