Dark Sky Tourism “consists of visitors travelling to remote, unlit areas to observe celestial objects such as stars, planets, moons, nebulae, star clusters and galaxies. Visitors can look at the sky with the naked eye or with the help of binoculars or telescopes. The experiences can also be accompanied by other activities like storytelling or astrophotography” (Dalgleish et al., 2022). It should though also be kept in mind that there exist dark sky opportunities even in towns, build-up areas and cities, but only if light pollution is managed.
Ecotourism is “Travel with a primary interest in the natural history of a destination. It is a non-invasive and participatory form of nature-based tourism that is built around learning, sustainability (conservation and local participation/benefits), and ethical planning, development and management.” (Fennel,2020).
