Travellers may want to consider heading to the stunning Blue Mountains in Australia. The location has been a UNESCO World Heritage site for the past 11 years and is a great destination for ecotourism. Vacationers will have the chance to explore vast valleys, swamps, canyons and more. Active vacationers can also enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing, rappelling and horseback riding, according to the Huffington Post.

Another fabulous destination tourists can check out is the Amazon in Brazil. There, vacationers will have the opportunity to explore the 485,622,770-hectares of rainforest and discover several exotic animals and plants. Adrenaline junkies will have an amazing time as they can walk along the treetops of the Bahia Atlantic forest and try their hand at canoeing, fishing for piranhas and much more, the news source reported.

Alaska is another wonderful destination for ecotourism. It is America's biggest state and is home to a number of rare animals, including humpback whales, brown bears, sea otters and lynx. In addition, there are more than 100 campsites that vacationers can choose from. Travellers who vacation here will never run out of animals to spot and sites to see.
