and Lebanon Lovers,
Eco-Lebanon is a guide promoting all kinds of nature based travel
and supporting the sustainable development of local communities
This guide is looking to attract individuals and groups who love
nature, seek an authentic Lebanese experience, and who want to
travel and have fun whilst helping to save the planet. We invite
you to visit this beautiful country and experience for yourself
the splendid biodiversity, diverse local communities and awe inspiring
cultural heritage that make Lebanon so special and unique.
Eager to position Lebanon as a premier eco-destination, the Ministry
of Tourism and other related government agencies, along with the
private sector, are working hand in hand to develop and promote
‘responsible tourism’. The purpose of this guide is
to provide travelers with information on nature and culture-based
touristic activities in Lebanon, that can concurrently help generate
income for local communities, support natural and cultural protected
areas, and minimize the negative impacts of tourism on Lebanon's
Due to the growing popularity of environment-centered adventure
travel, there has been in recent years, an increasing tendency
to classify various types of trip or holiday as ‘ecotourism’.
However, most of these trips cannot truly be identified as ecotourism,
not least because they do not emphasize conservation, education,
low impact travel, or social and cultural participation in the
locations being visited. We are aware of the reality, and although
this guide gathers and presents many initiatives and services
that may not be 100% eco-friendly, one of our primary objectives
is to begin to build environmental awareness and to contribute
to the well-being of local people across Lebanon.
Instead of being an ordinary tourist, we invite you to make a
real difference by playing the role of a tourist who seeks to
benefit a community in some way; someone who can leave a positive
footprint on the world. Being an environmentally friendly tourist
is not just about reducing consumption, it is about making a real
and lasting difference in local communities: socially, environmentally
and economically. An eco-trip that is properly planned, and taken
with due thought and care, can often have an impact that can last
far beyond the end of the trip.
We often wonder what the words ‘ecotourism’, ‘responsible
tourism’, ‘rural tourism’, ‘agritourism’,
‘nature based travel’, ‘adventure travel’
and ‘alternative tourism’ mean, and the problems associated
with defining these terms have led to confusion amongst tourists
and academics alike. With the assistance of experts, and section
by section, we will provide clear and succinct definitions of
these different types of tourism.
We invite you to be
more than just an ordinary tourist whilst enjoying the beautiful
and majestic splendors of Lebanon: make a change, leave a positive
footprint, and become a responsible tourist, with the help of
If you are already
a lover of Lebanon, you will no doubt also love the nature on

with which to plan eco-trips, organize sporting activities, and
experience Lebanon responsibly, at its finest.
