Roseau, Dominica

The island of Dominica offers an alternative to the standard white-sand-and-surf Caribbean setting: rocky, black beaches at the edges of an untamed jungle; gnarled banyan trees that line the pathways to secluded waterfalls; volcanic gases that belch into mud cauldrons and underwater bubble streams...

If you're so inclined, you can also find a patch of white sand on which to place your...

Algonquin Park, Ontario Canada

Whether the season is spring, summer, or fall, Killarney Lodge never fails to enchant. Drive to the southern end of Ontario's Algonquin Provincial Park on Highway 60 in the spring and you'll no doubt spot moose licking the salt from the leftover snow. Come summer, the wildflowers are in full bloom and the gray jays and chickadees practically eat out of your hand. In autumn, foliage's fiery...

SAN JUAN DEL SUR, Nicaragua

In 1998, when the Ponçon family purchased the 2,500-acre Nicaraguan farm where Morgan's Rock now stands, the land was occupied by squatters who were cutting down old-growth trees, stealing eggs from nesting sea turtles, and generally living in a way that threatened the sustainability of the rainforest.

Now many of those individuals are on the lodge's payroll, working to protect...

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

When Minnesota natives John and Karen Lewis sold everything they owned in 1990 to buy 930 acres of Costa Rican rainforest, they had a unique vision in mind: an ecotourism destination that would conserve the country's last lowland tropical rainforest, enhance nearby communities, and offer travelers a luxurious escape to nature.

By all accounts, they succeeded beyond even their own...

Greenville, ME

Opened in 1873 as a timber camp for those tough-as-bark men who chopped down trees and then rode atop the logs on rapid-churning rivers to the paper mill, Little Lyford made the transition to a sporting camp at the turn of the 19th century. "Sports," as they would call them, would take the long train ride from Boston and New York to fish for native brook trout on the waters of the West Branch...

Port Hardy, British Columbia Canada

The wildlife show begins before you even leave the lodge: barn swallows zoom in and out of their mud nests in the roof; a family of common mergansers glides across the glassy water off the deck; two harbor seals—one named Bob, and the other Not Bob—sun themselves on a floating log nearby.

But the main attraction is the bears. Twice a day, wildlife biologists lead grizzly...

Cameron, MT

When word spread that Papoose Creek Lodge in southwestern Montana was shutting down in late 2007, the eco-lodging community gasped that the first of the country's luxury green resorts was closing its doors. But the mourning was short-lived when it was announced that the nearby private residence of Papoose Creek's founders, Roger and Cindy Lang, was being remodeled and renovated into a lush...

Guangdong, China

When a Chinese development company initiated meetings with Keija villagers in the Nankun Mountain Nature Reserve, it signaled the start of a different sort of tourism project than China had ever seen: a collaboration between developers, community leaders, local craftsmen, and international experts in fields ranging from bamboo architecture to feng shui.

The result was a five-star...

Patagonia, Chile

Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chile is a twisted mass of monoliths and hoodoos that rise some 10,000 feet from the dry Patagonian steppe, seemingly piercing the clouds overhead. It's a dramatic glacial landscape where The Horns, a block of sweeping granite, rise majestically...

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

All it takes is about an hour of driving in the back of a jeep at Kenya's magnificent Masai Mara National Reserve and visitors are mesmerized by the wealth of wildlife. Mara is Swahili for "dotted hillside" and if you look across the savannah, you'll spot giraffes, elephants, Cape buffaloes, zebras, baboons, lions lounging under tall acacia trees, impalas, and hordes of wildebeests, especially...
