It was acknowledged that the variety of descriptive terms such as nature travel, adventure travel and cultural travel which are largely activity based and also the value-laden terms such as responsible, alternative and ethical tourism which underscore the need to consider impacts and the consequences of travel.

Conversely ecotourism is much more difficult to attain owing to its overall comprehensiveness. A form of tourism inspired primarily by the natural history of an area including its indigenous cultures.
