Taming the Gobi Desert has never been more exciting and accessible. Picture yourself stepping off a flight across the Pacific and onto Mongolian soil. Far beyond the beaten path, this vast country offers everything a true world-traveler could hope to find, and the most diverse of climates, wildlife, and outdoor activities that could possibly be fit into a single country. Yet even in such a remote corner of the world, amenities abound with the region's premier outfitters, Nomadic Expeditions.

Ecotourism in Estonia is simply enchanting, whether it's nature-based or cultural-based.

Ecotourism in Barbados. Barbados is one of those jewels in the Caribbean where every postcard looks idyllic, and every activity yields adventure.

I have dreamt Cuba for years and finally I managed to go there! It was like be carried 50 years ago....see things and a way of life I just heard about from my granmother's tales. A big shock considering our way of life but simpler and more genuine.
We stayed few days in La Habana where we stayed and eat in a lovely Casa particular in Old Havana (simple place but really really nice as well as the host family!)
Latvia is one of those rare treasures that seems to have it all: an impressive ecosystem, captivating culture, dedication to ecotourism, and the air of being unspoiled, yet ideally poised for ecotourists. The country, with its small population and well-developed infrastructure, has flown under the radar since its behind-the-Iron-Curtain days, despite having more than enough diversity to satisfy any type of tourist.
I have been there in 2006, but I will never forget it.Rocinha is one of the biggest 'favelas' in South America. It counts up to 200.000 inhabitants in the size of a few soccer fields. People live very near to each other, even though the reputation of the place makes it a hard neighourhood to live in. Despite this, some amazing kids have worked to improve cultural awareness and a bit of sensibility.
Pristine waterfalls, surprising beaches, dramatic fjords and fairy tales type wooden houses: that's just a part of what you can see while biking in Norway, an unforgettable ecotourism experience. So, leave your stress and busy life at home, jump on a bike and start pushing your feet on pedals, the terrific beauty of Norway is waiting for you!

Between 2003 and 2006, a National Tourism Development Programme was developed, and a marketing strategy was developed shortly after that. Some of the areas in which Lithuania wanted to focus on were national parks, local tourism, and seas and inland waters.
