Sustainable Tourism Label

Following the need to offer sustainable tourism services, Cévennes Tourisme is developing its Engagé(e)s Tourisme Durable label to complement the Esprit Parc brand, which applies only on the territory of the Cévennes National Park.

The objective of this certification is to promote a more environmentally friendly tourism to preserve natural areas and the living environment.

Our partners who wish to do so can apply for the label. Following a thorough audit, a commission determines the level of “commitment” of the professional: 1 eco-motivated; 2 eco-involved; 3 eco-exemplary. You can filter our label holders in our partner lists.

A label to complement the Esprit Parc brand of the Cévennes National Park

Inspired by nature, the Esprit Parc brand allows you to choose for your vacation, an accommodation, a tasting or an activity to disconnect from your daily life and get closer to the essential. This network of committed actors allows to enhance this beautiful territory while preserving its resources.

This brand applies on the territory of the Cevennes National Park. You can also get closer to the professionals of the Label Engagé(e)s Tourisme Durable, who share common values to move towards a tourism that is more respectful of its environment and living.

The Cevennes National Park and the Tourist Offices of the territory are committed to act around common and shared values to preserve our natural areas and our living environment.

Bathing in the Cevennes

Eco-gestures to adopt

The Cevennes are a destination of choice for river lovers.

Turquoise in color in spring, it reminds us of its vulnerability in the summer season with lower water levels. Adopt the right reflexes to ensure that this precious asset is preserved.

River swimming spots in the Cevennes are numerous. You will not find large stretches of water but small corners (of paradise) here or there to refresh yourself in an exceptional and protected setting.

Take the time to enjoy!
