Eco-Friendly Travel

Explore, Discover, & Revel Responsibly

An eco-friendly vacation is one spent exploring extraordinary outdoor spaces while being mindful and respectful of your personal impact on the environments you visit. This might take the form of ensuring your vacation activities have a minimal impact on the land, thoroughly researching and preparing for an outdoor adventure, ensuring you leave no trace while hiking or camping, supporting Door County businesses and industries when you shop, or volunteering for a cause while you’re in town.
