Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Retreats are well-thought-out travel getaways that enable you to connect with yourself and nature through a combination of yoga and meditation, outdoor activities, sustainable dining options and eco-conscious accommodation.

This perfect harmony of travel, sustainability and the natural world not only works to improve mental clarity and wellbeing but it also helps you to tread lightly on the planet and give back to local communities.

Each sustainable retreat has been chosen for its tranquil setting and cohesion with nature to bring you into the present moment and help you release the stresses of daily life. These retreats allow you to fully immerse yourself into nature, connecting with Mother Earth and showing gratitude and love for her wisdom and power.

Eco-conscious travel is a new type of tourism that focuses on the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, social and economic. This type of travel weighs up the effects it is having on each of these pillars and works alongside the industry and the local communities to address the current needs within society and lessen the future impact on the environment, the economy and the community.

Sustainable travel aims to enable explorers like you to continue discovering different corners of the globe long-term, in a meaningful, conscious manner. Instead of putting the needs and profits of global corporations first, eco-friendly travel brings nature, longevity, wildlife and community to the forefront instead.

grid farm, these days it can be anything from staying in a luxurious treehouse or a lovingly-restored barn to experiencing a carbon-neutral retreat or enjoying a yogi lifestyle in the countryside.Each eco-friendly retreat has its own focus with some centred around forest bathing or meditation while others include vegan cookery courses, outdoor Hatha or Kundalini yoga sessions or serene sound baths.The factors that overlap between each sustainable retreat are the environmentally-friendly accommodation choices (think: solar power, water and energy conservation and minimal waste), locally and ethically sourced materials and produce, and the preservation of local biodiversity.

Eco-friendly retreats can now be found in a variety of beautiful countries around the world, but it’s fair to say that some countries such as Costa Rica, Slovenia and New Zealand have been leading the way in terms of sustainable tourism. Not only do these countries have stunning landscapes and climates in which to host eco-friendly retreats, but their governments have also put strong eco-tourism practices and policies in place that have helped them pave the way.

Other incredible destinations for sustainable and eco-friendly retreats include Tuscany in Italy (with an awesome local food scene), rural France, Marrakesh and the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and the Greek Isles – absolute hubs of natural beauty!
