Bora Bora - French Polynesia

A couple of thousand miles east off the coast of Australia lie the French Polynesian islands. One of these islands is that of Bora Bora. Surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef this island is beautiful and a virtual haven for the ecotourist.

The island is very much self-sustaining with most of its produce coming from the sea, thus ensuring that every penny spent goes directly back into the local economy.

Lapland - Finland

Any ecotourist planning on visiting Lapland is in for a wonderful experience. For many people Lapland inspires images of thick snow, reindeers and a very festive atmosphere. Whilst it is true that this area of Northern Finland has more than its fair share of snow every year, there is more to do than go skiing or to take your children for a Christmas experience.

One of the so-called Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, it is located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, and north of Barbados.
