Distinctly in keeping with the surroundings and the local culture, 26 guest rooms at Fellow Member @feynanecolodge are designed around internal courtyards reminiscent of the ancient inns on the silk routes through the desert. Lighting comes from candles tucked in alcoves around the room and the lodge runs on solar power as part of the goal to minimise the environmental footprint of each guest. #init4thelongrun #feynanecolodge #jordan #ecolodge #ecotravel #environment #hotelroom #design #planetearth #solarpower #candlelit #sustainability #sustainabletravel #desert #travel #instatravel #travelgram

If you’re keen to explore this area then Grootbos is one of our favourite places to stay. Some feedback (and this gorgeous photo) just in - “Grootbos was amazing and surpassed our expectations with its natural beauty, activities and fantastic staff, who all went out of their way to make our stay special. We were very taken with the Stanford/Walker Bay/Hermanus area in general and would like to return there at the earliest opportunity for some whale watching...”

Tourism was never a goal in itself for Fellow Member @huilohuilo_reservabiologica in the temperate Patagonian Rainforest under the Chilean Andes. Tourism was implemented as a way to conserve the unique environment of the 240,000 acre biological reserve for the future generations. Traditional handicraft and architecture are displayed in the various accommodation options for tourists. Nothofagus Hotel, for example, was built to live in the treetops and was built to highlight cultural practices.

And the coziest linens from @cuddledown (which we loved so much we bought them for our home bedding).⠀ _________⠀ I was thrilled to read that the Inn is still going strong and has continued its commitment to green practices.

Working in harmony with nature, Jordan architect Ammar Khammash designed Fellow Member @feynanecolodge was designed to blend in with the surrounding rocky environment. Dana Biosphere, where Feynan Eco Lodge is located in Jordan, is an area of tremendous wildlife, geological and landscape variety. The diversity of flora and fauna, natural, historical, and cultural sites is unique in Jordan. There is global importance to the biodiversity found here and the reserve has helped to protect important populations of a number of threatened species. #init4thelongrun #feynan #feynanecolodge #Jordan #nature #architecture #design #lodge #ecolodge #goJordan #natgeo #adventure #mountains #landscape #eco #travelgram #landscapephotography #travel #sustainabletravel #instatravel #picoftheday #desert #sustainability #conservation #danabiosphere #environment #danabiospherereserve #biodiversity

The historic 1920’s cabins at Fellow Member @flatcreekranchwyo may be surrounded by snow now, but when summer arrives the horses return and there’ll be 144-acres of meadows to roam again. As long as those cabins have been standing, Flat Creek Ranch has been dedicated to conservation. Their unique location is part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, home to wolves, mountain lions, black and grizzly bears, bighorn sheep, moose, elk and deer. #init4thelongrun #flatcreek #jacksonholewyoming #unitedstates #america #yellowstone #ecosystem #conservation #wildlifeconservation #winter #winterseason #snow #landscape #landscapephotography #sustainability #sustainabletravel #travel #travelphotography #travel4good #instatravel #travelgram #ecotravel #environment

At Tahi, we are both proud and humbled to be a member of The Long Run and be considered among the most sustainably-minded organisations in the world. 🌲

Anole lizards will make it very clear to you that you are trespassing on their territory. At the very least the fierce posture and bright colors impress the females! at Puerto Jiménez

It's the summer season at GER® Member @tahinewzealand and a spectacular time to experience the secluded sanctuary in New Zealand’s North Island. The Tahi walks offer visitors the opportunity to explore the 800-acres where golden sands and South Pacific surf meet estuaries, wetlands and native forest. The walks are guided by a member of the local Maori community and visitors are led through ancient trees, local history, and legends of the area. The restoration that has taken place at Tahi focuses on both the land and the community. #init4thelongrun #conservation #Tahi #tahinewzealand #tahihoney #manukahoney #newzealand #travel4good #travelgram #instatravel #landscape_photography #nature #natgeo #ecolodge #ecotravel #nature_shots #sustainability #sustainabletravel #community #the4Cs

Gifts aren't just for Christmas at Fellow Member Kicheche Mara, part of @kicheche_safari_camps Located in Kenya's Mara North Conservancy, the 74,000 acres of community-owned conservation land is a vital part of the Maasai Mara ecosystem. Managed volume and strict land-use plans have been designed to benefit all parties with the result being one of the lowest tourist and vehicle densities in the ecosystem. Wildlife roams freely through the unfenced area on traditional routes. #init4thelongrun #conservation #safari #kicheche #kichechemara #maranorth #maasaimara #magicalKenya #kenya #ecolodge #ecotravel #sustainabletravel #sustainability #planetearth #environment #travel4good #instatravel #travelgram #wildlife

Season is in full swing at Fellow Member @basecampoulanka where the winter wonderland programme is a highlight at this award-winning Arctic destination. It's the time of year when visits to the local reindeer farms are possible, part of the local traditions that are promoted through their work with the community. Situated in a rural area near a village called Juuma in Finland, Basecamp Oulanka has brought back life and jobs to the previously underpopulated area. Guides are all from the local area and are able to work year round as the programmes that have been created ensure there is no time of year when visitors are not attracted to Oulanka. #init4thelongrun #basecampoulanka #oulankanationalpark #finland #travel4good #wintertravel #winter #snow #travelgram #instatravel #sustainability #sustainabletravel #community #culture #conservation #commerce #the4Cs #ecotravel #environment #planetearth

A former shark-finning camp is now a high-end private island resort, thanks to the founders of Fellow Member @misool.resort. The resort is tucked away on one of the Misool Private Marine Reserve’s multiple islands in Indonesia’s remote Raja Ampat. Here 300,000 acres of the world’s most ecologically significant coral reefs are being protected with some of the funding being provided by tourism activities. 📷: Tobias Zimmer #init4thelongrun #misool #misoolecoresort #indonesia #rajaampat #conservation #travel4good #sustainability #sustainabletravel #ocean #naturephotography #landscapephotography #oceanconservation #coralreef #travelgram #ecotravel #ecolodge #planetearth #environment
