There is a lot to experience in the nature, but even the outdoors can be crowded with visitors during the peak of the summer season. To counter overtourism and avoid putting excessive strain on the nature’s resources, it is an excellent idea to vacation during the off-season. Many popular attractions are just as enjoyable to visit during the off-season, because each season comes with its own charm.
Sustainable tourism also encompasses social and economic factors. By traveling during the off-season, you contribute to the sustainability of the local economy. With a more balanced influx of visitors, restaurants, shops, and other businesses find it easier to operate year-round. This creates more full-time jobs and employment opportunities.
