如何可持续地体验自然

2017年是联合国的任务 旅游可持续发展年,这促使国际旅行界之间进行了至关重要的对话。 How can we continue to enjoy a wide variety of international travel while still ensuring that the places we visit aren't affected by our recreational activities?我们如何继续享受各种各样的国际旅行,同时又确保我们游览的地方不受我们的娱乐活动影响?

There are many dimensions to this question.这个问题有很多方面。 Most notably, how to continue adventure tourism while ensuring accessibility yet preventing environmental degradation.最值得注意的是,如何在确保可及性同时防止环境恶化的同时继续冒险旅行。 Let's explore some ways that we can sustain this effort.让我们探索一些可以维持这一努力的方法。

商业承诺以尽量减少影响

One of the most important questions people need to ask travel providers directly is if they have taken responsibility for the damage they cause, both directly and indirectly, and how they are mitigating it.人们需要直接问旅游提供商的最重要的问题之一是,他们是否对直接和间接造成的损害承担责任,以及如何减轻损害。 For example, are their buildings green certified?例如,他们的建筑物是否获得绿色认证? Are they a member of an organization working directly with sustainability initiatives?他们是直接与可持续性倡议合作的组织的成员吗? Do they participate in 'leave-no-trace' principles?他们是否参与“不留痕迹”原则? Or do they utilize energy-efficient transportation options?还是他们利用节能的交通方式?

Of course these are just a few strategies that existing companies can employ when tackling the 'greenification' of their business.当然,这些只是现有公司在解决业务“绿色化”时可以采用的一些策略。 Yet ultimately, it may be a matter of changing the way that tourism is perceived at a micro-level.但最终,可能要改变微观层面上对旅游业的看法。

例如,在 Outdoor Norway, 公司的愿景 for travel is about simple joy and appreciation for life.旅行是关于简单的快乐和对生活的欣赏。 With a desire to immerse travelers in regional culture and support local businesses, they are trying to do their part to help curb the negative aspects of global tourism.为了使旅行者沉浸在区域文化中并支持本地企业,他们正在尽自己的力量来遏制全球旅游业的负面影响。 A major part of this is avoiding the hotspots made famous by the internet, and allowing travelers to enjoy a more authentic and unique experience in Norway.其中一个主要方面是避免因互联网而闻名的热点,并使旅行者在挪威享受更真实,独特的体验。

注重有机体验

Moving away from the ordinary and oversold is one way to ensure a memorable experience not had by many others.摆脱普通和超卖是确保许多其他人没有的难忘经历的一种方法。 For example, on a backcountry ski adventure, between the beautiful landscape and perfect powder, one gains a deeper appreciation for the purity of living for the simple moments.例如,在野外滑雪探险中,在美丽的风景和完美的粉尘之间,人们对简单时刻的生活纯度有了更深的欣赏。

同样,通过花一些时间来放松自然并与大自然保持联系,而又不会分散日常生活的注意力,我们不仅减少了进行高浪费活动的可能性,而且还更有可能采取以生态为中心的旅行方式,最终帮助我们专注于为子孙后代保留这些空间。

批判性地思考我们的做法

How many times have we chosen plastic takeaway bags and containers over dine-in, washable plates?我们选择用餐或清洗盘子上的塑料外卖袋和容器有多少次? How many times have we opted for the cheaper,我们选择便宜多少次了, 国际快餐选择s,吃一些当地准备的食物? If we are to be critical to the way we travel across the globe, it is just as important to be critical of the daily decisions we make, as long as our ultimate goal is to make long-lasting and impactful change.如果我们对遍及全球的旅行方式至关重要,则对我们做出的日常决策也至关重要,只要我们的最终目标是做出持久而有影响力的改变。

We understand that making the change from being a mainstream tourist to an avid low-kay nature goer isn't easy.我们知道,要从主流旅游者转变为狂热的低俗自然游客并不容易。 There's a lot that happens in between, but the key is to两者之间发生了很多事情,但是关键是 现在做些小改变,并观察他们如何随着时间的推移积极改变您的旅行体验。

可持续发展始于对新的做事方式开放并确保每个人都受到欢迎,这是我们的口头禅 Outdoor Norway。 Our adventures, low key or high thrill, can be the first step you take to being a more eco-friendly tourist in Norway.无论是低调还是刺激,我们的冒险之旅都可以成为您成为挪威更加生态友好的游客的第一步。
