Ecotourism first grew out of our love of being outdoors, from mountaineering to trail rides.

Now you have the chance to do what you love with Ecotourism by building your own business or working with someone to assist them in providing eco tours and activities for customers.

Throughout the Ecotour Management course you will determine the ethical and legal considerations for your business, along with the safety and management requirements of your business.

There is the chance for further studies after completing this course.

The course is self-paced to fit around your work and family commitments.
