Geotourism: The Future of Travel (video)

Tourist travel increases throughout the world every year, often threatening to destroy the things tourists come to see. Geotourism is a new word for sustainable tourism, which helps to protect sites, help communities, and develop local skills.

This National Geographic video explains the concept and takes us to three local businesses in different parts of the world where these principles are followed.

Before you plan your next trip, you might want to consider how you can contribute to these goals. Is this something you think might be an important consideration in your travel planning?
