//Do you want an active holiday with fresh air and lovely rides? Then I can recommend the ski resort Val Thorens. Val Thorens is located in the French Alps and is Europe’s highest ski resort. The area has won many prizes as Europe’s and France’s best ski resort, and there is something for everyone, both novice and experienced off-piste skiers. It is easy to rent equipment on site, the slopes are long, the sun shines often and there are world-class cuisine. For example, test restaurant Jean Sulpice.
Season with snow guarantee runs from November all the way forward to 8th of May. The ski resort is working with the aim to preserve the environment and the practical work with this is for example that the lift system is powered by renewable energy, recycling, new sewage system, tree planting and street lights with energy saving light bulbs. Here you can read more about the ski resort’s environmental efforts.
Would you like to do something for the environment yourself you can think of these things:
//After 4 months of travelling in Panama and Cuba I started the new year in Brazil where I had stayed since november. Ethical traveler have this year awarded Panama as one of the worlds top ten ethical destinations! I travelled with bus north from Rio de Janeiro. I celebrated christmas in beautiful Morro de Sao Paulo in Bahia. The hosts were so friendly and they even picked cashew fruits from their garden for me and mixed a nice smoothie. The I tried the mud bath in the beach! The most funny thing was when a family of apes came and tried out my hammock ;). The highlights in Brazil are many but the island Fernando de Noronha was the best with beaches that have won several of Lonely planets awards which is not so hard to understand. The island is a huge protected area where you can swim with turtles, small sharks and colorful fish. Go there! It is wonderful.
