Estonia is a small country, situated on the Baltic coast between Russia, Finland, Latvia and Sweden. Estonian territory is about same as the Netherlands, but the population (1.4 million) is eleven times less, which means that there is lot of space for nature. About 50% of country is covered by forests and woods, and is home to eagles, wolves, brown bears and lynx. People of Estonia often call themselves the "forest people", and have lived on these lands since Stone Age. ecoDestinations Estonia



Sweden takes ecotourism seriously. The Scandinavian country known for its natural beauty is home to one of the world's leading ecotourism quality labels, Nature's Best, which, when it was first established in 2002 was the first of its kind in the Northern Hemisphere. Ecotourism, to the tourism stakeholders and communities in Sweden, is also an important and practical tool - "an efficient way to add economic value to threatened natural areas and cultural sites." Ecotourism in Sweden, however, is not just about its social, economic and environmental benefits; it's also, just as importantly, about fun. Organizations such as the Ecotourism Society of Sweden offering and promoting a selection of the best nature tours from across the country means that travelers can experience and enjoy the best of Sweden, while at the same time having the peace of mind that their stays and activities leave a minimal footprint and contribute to conservation efforts and the local economy. ecoDestinations Sweden
