Nature tours and nature tourism is defined as a type of travel experience that bring travelers up and close with natural areas and wildlife. It also involves the promotion and understanding of the conservation of the natural environment and its resources. This type of travel is referred to as ecotourism.

Other aspects of nature tours and nature tourism include endorsing eco resorts and lodges and the welfare of the native peoples: their cultures, their livelihood and their artistry.

Some adventures to be enjoyed during nature tours and nature tourism outings include birdwatching, mammals and amphibians tracking, nature photography, rainforest hiking, stargazing, kayaking, zip lining, and exploring caves and geological sites.

Travelers who engage in nature tours and nature tourism are oftentimes people who are interested in the natural, the cultural, and the historical experience that the region offers.

In terms of conservation, operators of eco resorts, lodges and nature tours do so in a manner that is sustainable to the local land, wildlife, and the environment. This means that great care is taken not to deplete lands’ resources in the names of profitable developments. Wildlife animals and plant species’ habitats remain intact or are refurbished when damaged. Conservation efforts are also directed at improving the local economy. Associations maybe set up to provide a collective support to farmers and local artisans. Other opportunities for training and self-development programs may be implemented and utilized.

Nature tourism and ecotourism goes hand in hand. Since nature tours and nature tourism introduce travelers to natural areas, ecotourism represents a set of environmentally principles. Ecotourism can be defined as a type of tourism that serves well the environmentally, culturally and economically consciences of a region.

As are sustainable tourism and responsible tourism, ecotourism is fundamentally sustainable in that it meets the needs of the present without compromising or depleting natural resources and environment so that the need of future generations can be met.

Nature tours take travelers through dense rainforests and jungles such as the Amazon Rain forest and Great Bear Rainforest. Mountain tours guide hikers up some imposing peaks such as the Andes, the Alps, Blue Mountain Peak, Denali, and the Rockies.

Ecosystems are (or should be) protected areas of importance. They serve to protect (and preserve) certain wild animals, insects, plants, and geological sites etc. These areas are referred to as nature reserves, bioreserve, biological reserves, wildlife corridors, national parks, or simply protected areas. Ecological community and biomes are oftentimes managed for conservation or the study of a set of animals or plants. Our nature tours of nature reserves provide a way for travelers to see some species that might otherwise not be available for observation elsewhere.
