Biosphere Destinations in Catalonia. A commitment to sustainability.

Catalonia is an area rich in cultural diversity, charming landscapes and a history that goes back centuries. It has become a benchmark in sustainable tourism thanks to the Biosphere Destinations.

These destinations not only offer a unique tourist experience, but are also committed to environmental preservation and sustainable development.

Biosphere Destinations are recognitions granted by the Institute of Responsible Tourism (ITR) and endorsed by UNESCO. In Catalonia, these destinations are characterized by being places that not only stand out for their beauty and cultural value, but also assume a firm commitment to the conservation of their natural resources and the improvement of the quality of life of their inhabitants and visitors.

From coastal areas to the highest peaks of the Pyrenees, sustainable destinations are actively working to protect local biodiversity and ensure that future generations can enjoy these natural wonders.

In addition to nature conservation, Biosphere Destinations in Catalonia also place a strong emphasis on the sustainable development of their communities. This involves encouraging the use of renewable energy sources, promoting energy efficiency in buildings and ensuring that tourism activities benefit local economies.

Responsible tourism not only contributes to the well-being of the local population but also strengthens cultural identity and preserves local traditions.

Gastronomy also plays a prominent role in the Biosphere Destinations in Catalonia. Visitors can enjoy the wealth of local products, which are obtained through environmentally friendly agricultural practices. Sustainable restaurants offer dishes made with local products, promoting a healthy diet and encouraging sustainable production.

Hospitality also plays a key role in the success and positive impact of Biosphere Destinations. From the implementation of energy efficiency practices to responsible waste management, the hospitality industry actively contributes to the preservation of the environment.

Biosphere destinations also stand out for their responsible tourism initiatives. From the use of public transport to the promotion of travel on foot or by bicycle, these destinations seek to reduce the carbon footprint of tourism. In addition, visitors are encouraged to raise awareness of the importance of respecting cultural and natural heritage, and adopting responsible behavior during their stay.
