Green travel

Today is Blog action day – bloggers are asked to post something about the environment. For tourism in Canada that’s not too hard. I just had to put together a media itinerary around eco lodges in Canada, and found some great environmentally friendly lodges in Alberta/BC. ONe of my favourites is Purcell Mountain Lodge. It is true that one has to fly in by chopper, but once there, there are endless alpine meadows to hike in.

Shadow Lake lodge in Banff NP is even better, you hike or snowshoe in, and stay in simple, historic cabins.  Lake O’Hara lodge ain’t bad either.

Of course, if you really want to rough it eco-style,  then glamping in Clayquot Resort is the ticket.
