The responsible accommodation of Greece

All the addresses of eco-friendly hotels in Greece

With 15,000 kilometers of coastline, a multitude of islands scattered across the Aegean Sea and an ancestral history, Greece is a popular country for travelers. Offering heavenly beaches and charming villages, it is easy to understand the success of the Greek islands. The Greek mainland is not to be outdone, with its thousand-year-old capital Athens and the Peloponnese region full of ancient sites. But with the crowds of travelers come the problems of mass tourism. Forest fires and the gradual extinction of marine biodiversity threaten the country. However, ecotourism in Greece is possible. Discover how to visit this Mediterranean country differently with our selection of eco-friendly hotels in Greece.

Sustainable tourism in Greece

Greece is gradually taking the step of responsible tourism and its nature could use some help. Some species, notably the monk seal and the loggerhead turtle, are threatened with extinction. To fight against this phenomenon, an environmental program for marine protection has been set up. Cleaning projects are also launched on several islands. This is particularly the case in the Cyclades archipelago or in some Ionian islands. The island of Paros is going even further with the launch of the Clean Blue Paros program: its ambition is to become the first island in the Mediterranean without plastic.

On the mainland, forest fires are the problem and are ravaging nature. To preserve its trees, Greece has written into its constitution the compulsory reforestation of burned areas. This is good news for the mountainous areas of the country. They are ideal for certain activities and for contact with nature, and European travelers are increasingly choosing them to enjoy a mild climate, even in winter.
