Green hotels, environmentally responsible eco-tour operators, carbon neutral and ecofriendly airlines, hybrid & eco-friendly rental car agencies, Oceanwise restaurants, attractions and activities that maintain sustainable practices… with so many resources available at your fingertips, where is a would-be green traveller go to start? The Victoria Sustainable Tourism Alliance is about letting people know what we do and why we do what we do to promote sustainability. We believe that in this way we can better engage a wider group of travellers than just the `green`minded or better yet the “responsible traveller and in doing so help support Victoria in its goal to be the greenest city in Canada.
