Travel Planning

Green Travel can take on many forms, but the general idea is to find ways to lessen your impact on the planet. Instead of using a car, it’s easy to walk, bicycle and use public transportation in Gatlinburg.

Here are some easy ways to reduce your environmental impact:

  • Renting hybrid cars
  • Walking, cycling or using public transportation instead of driving your car
  • Use of biodiesel fuels
  • Taking advantage of ridesharing and carpools
  • Choosing lodgings that have earned green ratings and awards
  • Booking with a green organization or green travel provider
  • Volunteering time by giving back to the community you visit
  • Offsetting your carbon footprint by making a donation to offset the amount of carbon that your trip expels into the atmosphere.
