Eco Tourism in the Middle East: Syria

Now that we’ve toured Lebanon, Jordan, and even Iran, let’s make an online eco-visit to Syria. Since Syria has not yet experienced a wave of mass tourism, its sites are still well preserved and relatively undisturbed. That, combined with the fact that Syria has a wide variety of landscapes ranging from forests to beaches to mountains, makes Syria a perfect spot for eco-tourism.

Like other Arab countries in the region, eco-tourism in Syria mainly consists of environmentally friendly tour operators offering a range of wildlife-focused trips.

Here are some of Syria’s top green tourism companies:

Ecotourism Syria: This tour company, which also keeps a great blog, is devoted to supporting biodiversity conservation while practicing responsible tourism. The company’s tours focus on Syria’s many protected areas, observation of unique biodiversity, and birdwatching.

TLB Destinations: TLB Destinations leads eco-tours all over the Middle East and offers a variety of sustainable tourism options in Syria. Their different themes include adventures, biking, cultural tours, discovery, and family trips. We think the biking tour of Syria’s coast sounds pretty beautiful.

In other Syrian eco-tourism news, Lebanese environmental consulting company Envirotech Ltd. is working on developing sustainable tourism in Syria’s Palmyra region so that the damages to local flora and fauna are not worsened by visitors.
