MEET is a conservation project at its core, designed to support parks in the Mediterranean which play a critical role in protecting the region´s threatened biodiversity.
We design travel products that make a positive contribution to conservation and local communities and provide visitors to the region with meaningful, market-ready alternatives to over-developed coastlines, crowded beaches, and all-inclusive resorts. Our partners are the protected areas themselves. Each park has collaborated over several years with a team of local travel suppliers to design and refine the products you´ll find in this guide.
Itineraries in the MEET Guide have achieved high standards of quality and sustainability. Suppliers have implemented tangible measures to reduce negative impacts on the local environment and way of life.
The MEET Network was initially formed at the end of 2015. More than 35 protected areas along with highly respected travel and conservation organizations across 10 countries, have worked together to develop a high-quality eco-travel portfolio for the Mediterranean region.
