Estonia among world’s most sustainable destinations

Seven locations in Estonia – three towns, two islands, a county and a national park – have been included in the Sustainable Top 100 Destinations 2020 list.

The Sustainable Top 100 Destinations competition, organised by 12 international organisations under the Green Destinations umbrella, aims to showcase sustainable tourism stories and good practices of destinations, as inspiring examples to others, to tour operators and to travellers.

The 2020 list includes seven locations from Estonia – the islands of Hiiumaa and Saaremaa, the towns of Pärnu, Rakvere and Tartu, Järva County and Lahemaa National Park that is split between Harju and Lääne-Viru County.

By publishing the annual list, the initiators acknowledge the steps taken towards making tourism destinations more sustainable, responsible and more attractive from a visitor experience point of view.

The Sustainable Destinations Top 100 selection is conducted each year as part of the Top 100 Partnership with Green Destinations, QualityCoast, TravelMole, Vision on Sustainable Tourism, Travelife, ITB Berlin, Asian Ecotourism Network, Ecotourism Australia and GLP Films.
