The Ecotourism Society defines ecotourism as "responsible travel to natural areas which conserves the environment and improves the welfare of the local people".  A walk through a forest or a rafting trip is only ecotourism if it raises both awareness and funds to help protect the environment and  benefit the people who live there.

The Ecotourist Code of Conduct as your guideline, Ikama proposes that you explore Lebanon's natural diversity through the natural spots that we have selected.  While some of them (the protected areas) benefit the local community, others constitute as "nature-based tourism", which is a more generic term for any activity or travel experience with a focus on nature.

To locate some of these places select one of the following regions listed to the right or click on the map below;
