World travelers are increasingly choosing a sustainable way to travel!
According to Booking.com’s latest report, as many as 71 percent of global travelers say they want to travel sustainably.
An ecologically responsible tourist will rather choose a tourist offer that directly includes various forms of work with local residents and the purchase of authentic and organically grown products from local producers, than an inauthentic offer. The point of sustainable tourism is to actively and responsibly participate in the life of the local community and to respect the cultural principles and sights of the destination. In addition to the authentic experience of the local community, sustainable tourism includes activities that are carried out in harmony with nature, such as cycling, running, climbing or hiking. If we forget about nature and the preservation of its resources and focus everything only on making a profit, the consequences for the tourist destination can be irreversible.
Traveling sustainably isn’t just important to global travelers. The conducted research showed that 75% of Croatian travelers would prefer to choose sustainable accommodation for their vacation – regardless of whether they are specifically looking for it or not.
Croatian tourism is mainly focused on the coast. However, for the further development of sustainable tourism in Croatia, it is necessary to evenly distribute guests within all regions and types of accommodation in order to balance the life of the local community and tourists. The rural areas of Croatia also have a lot of content to offer, and this is evidenced by the increasingly popular rural eco-tourism.
