France écotours offers themed trips and reality tours which subscribe to the principles of responsible and sustainable tourism. Our aim is to allow visitors to discover the many facets of the country by taking them off the beaten path and getting them in touch with its nature and residents, while ensuring that their visits do not have a negative effect on its natural environment and people. As such, our trips are built upon low-carbon mobility such as hiking, bike tours, train and bus rides as well as family-owned accommodations, traditional and often organic foods and local tour guides.
In addition to our guided and self-guided tours, we offer customised corporate trips such as incentive, client or anniversary getaways. These trips are customised according to each company's individual wishes – ranging from themed city tours to team building events in nature reserves involving social or ecological activities. A detailed carbon emissions calculation allows you to assess your trip's contribution to your company's carbon footprint and help you achive your environmental goals.
As a responsible tour operator, we are a member of the German sustainable tourism association forum anders reisen and we have been awarded the “CSR for tourism certificate” by the German certification office TourCert.
