Ecotourism is traveling to places with relatively untouched nature, in order to get an idea of the natural, cultural and ethnographic features of the area, without violating the integrity of ecosystems.

The uniqueness of the Belarusian nature allows us to develop such areas of ecotourism as travel to nature reserves, scientific tourism, natural history tours.

The basis for the development of eco-tourism is a network of specially protected natural areas and national parks, where unique landscapes and absolute reserves of wildlife are preserved. A special place among them belongs to the National Park Belovezhskaya Pushcha – the oldest of the forests of Europe, included in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.

Other national parks are also unique – Braslav Lakes, Pripyatsky, Narochansky, as well as the Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve.

For nature history amateurs, Belarus can provide tourist excursions that run along specially formed ecological routes. Ecological trails and routes allow you to appreciate the unique beauty of the country, get acquainted with its rich natural potential, picturesque landscapes, the richness of flora and fauna, natural sanctuaries and unique species of flora and fauna.

Landscapes of ancient homesteads and monasteries are also objects of ecological tourism.

In addition, Belarus has more than a thousand specially protected natural areas, including areas with unique, etalon or other values, natural complexes and objects that have ecological, scientific, historical, cultural, aesthetic and other significance.
