The Struggle of Finding an Eco-Friendly Vacation Spot
Just a quick note on....
Eco traveling. Don’t you find it annoying that when you’re planning a trip, it’s always such a struggle finding those amazing spots that are not only in the right location, but lives up to the same sustainable standards, and aesthetics, you’re trying to maintain in your everyday life (or better, right?). How many hours, days or weeks of one’s life is it reasonable to spend on google searches and Instagram hunts (does anyone use Pinterest anymore?) before confirming an actual booking?
What you would want is a curated space, on the Internet, for only the coolest hotels and—in a dream world—restaurants, spas and yoga places, or whatever you like to do, that are all sustainably operated; and no greenwashing. Maybe we should just create this place ourselves?
In the meantime, you should check out I Love Eco Hotels, where they present a small selection of sustainable spots located mainly in the Nordics. We’d love to check in at one of the Guldsmeden hotels, like Bertrams (above) located in Copenhagen.
Please share your best eco hotels or vacation spots with us, and we’ll start working on a list!
