Nature Travel

Whether it's a cruise through the Galapagos Islands, a soar over the Amazon rainforest, a descent into Vietnam's vast cave systems, or a trek in the Himalayas, nature travel gifts sights and experiences you simply wouldn't see or feel anywhere else. Hand in hand with that is ecotourism, a type of travel that simultaneously drops tourists into stunning natural environments and funds conservation efforts to protect them. Travel + Leisure evaluates nature-oriented tour companies, outfitters, and accommodations based on their value, quality, and environmental stewardship. Whether it's an outdoor adventure or a glimpse into a destination's wildlife you're after, the news, tips, and recommendations here will prepare you for the adventure ahead.
