Greek nature - Ecotourism

 
 Greece due to its geomorphology is endowed with an intriguing rich and variable natural environment, with a lot of contrasts and areas of great ecological value. The coasts, the rocky massifs, the caves, the gorges, the lakes, the rivers and the biotopes in combination with the mild climate, make it be one of  the most suitable destinations for ecotourism and alternative forms of tourism. Travelling in Greece, is a powerful experience for the admirers of nature as they will have the opportunity to  wander through forests or explore national parks both at mountainous regions and regions by the sea. Visit natural monuments, gorges, caves and waterfalls. Admire rare bird species nesting or seeking refuge in coastal ecosystems and wetlands. Also,  allows the environmentalists to study the highly diverse floral life of the Greek countryside and visit the unique marine parks near the islands of Alonissos and Zakynthos, which provide shelter to two protected species, the Mediterranean monk seal “Monachus-Monachus” and the Mediterranean green loggerhead turtle named “Caretta- caretta”. For those who are fond to do extreme sports like canoe-kayak, rafting, monoraft, hydrospeed, canyoning, mountain biking, etc, it is a certainty that will stay satisfied.
Additionally it is a great experience staying in agrotourist units which are being developed all over the country and bring the visitors close to vernacular architecture, cultural and gastronomic tradition, local products, farming activities and mainly to the daily life of local inhabitants.    
Visitors of ecologically sensitive areas must observe all rules for the protection of the environment against pollution, the non-disturbance of natural habitats and the preservation of the various ecosystems’ equilibrium. Information on visiting protected areas and participating in special programs can be obtained from local information centres, local authorities, and specialised agencies.
