About Greentraveller's Guides
This website (greentraveller.co.uk) is the home of our Greentraveller's Guides.
Researched, written and produced by our team of travel writers, bloggers, photographers and videographers, the guides contain fresh, original content that aim to show readers how to make greener holiday choices by minimising their impact on the environment and maximising the benefits to local communities.
The guides include easy to read articles and selected listings combined with professional photography and short videos filmed by us that aim to bring sustainable tourism alive.
Working with local partners to select about 50 experiences in each guide, we promote characterful places to stay, local, seasonal food and drink, attractions, heritage, craft and cultural attractions, wildlife, and low impact activities, including walks, cycle rides and marine-based ecotourism activities. We also provide information on how to get around destinations by low carbon transport, such as by bike, bus and train.
The listings are linked to the relevant review on Google Maps so readers can gain an informed understanding of what the experience is like, from both the reviews written by our professional travel writers as well as from the most recent feedback from the general public.
Greentraveller has been featured in curated lists of the 'Best Travel Websites' in the Telegraph, Times, Independent and Guardian, and has been featured in The Sun, The Irish Times, The Sunday Times, The Ecologist, Family Traveller, and as 'Website of the Week' in the Mail Online.
We have two more Greentraveller's Guides planned for publication in late 2019 in two fabulous destinations in Southern Europe... watch this space!
