Do you bit for the planet while you travel

Do you bit for the planet while you travel

Here are 5 exciting ways to see the world, without costing the environment...

1. Hiking

Lace up your hiking boots, pack up your tent and take to the peaks. Whether you're pitching up in the Scottish Highlands or heading to the Himalayas, a hiking holiday is a great way to get active and explore the outdoors without leaving a carbon footprint.

2. White-water rafting

Prepare to get wet as you take to the rushing waters of the rapids. Make a holiday of it by booking waterside lodges or pitching a tent along the way. Salmon River in Idaho, USA and Rio Futaleufu in Chile are just a couple of our favourite rafting spots.

3. Mountain biking

Fancy yourself as a bit of daredevil? Europe has some of the most challenging mountain bike routes just waiting for you to tackle. From the breathtaking peaks of the Dolomites in Italy, to a stunning 3,000-metre climb along the western Portuguese coastline. Wherever your destination, you can be sure to steal some unforgettable views without any cost to the planet.

4. Snorkelling

Discover a new underwater world of eco-friendly snorkelling at a destination focused on sustainability. With 75% of our world's reefs at risk, it's important to find the right location for your dive. Luckily, there are a number of resorts including those in the Maldives, Hawaii and along the Red Sea in Egypt, putting the health of their reefs front of mind.

5. Volunteering

Go all the way by embarking on a sustainable volunteering venture - donating your time to help give back to the planet. Sustainable volunteering programmes get involved in any number of community or environment-conscious projects, from working in wildlife conservation to helping poor communities get access to clean water.
