Example sentence(s):
  • Et iøjnefaldende problem ved økoturisme er, at det ofte blot er gammel vin på nye flasker. Den traditionelle turistsektor bruger økoturisme som et nyt ord i markedsføringen af turisme, og rejser lanceres som økoturisme, blot der er minimal kontakt med naturen. - NOAH  
  • Økoturisme er en form for turisme, hvor man gerne vil sikre lokalbefolkningens indtægter og indflydelse. Desuden søger man også at begrænse skadevirkningen på miljøet. - Randers Regnskov
