WHAT IS ECOTOURISM?
Ecotourism is defined as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people” (The International Ecotourism Society TIES). Ecotourism focuses on ecologically and socially responsible, nature-based tourism that fosters environmental appreciation and understanding while contributing to the local economy.
Our environment is fragile and it is our aim to encourage a respect and sense of wonder that working in and visiting our local environment brings.
At Hook lighthouse we are committed to ecotourism principles and aim to have a minimal impact on our environment.
