Justraveling has developed world’s first Alternative Travel Index to help identify the “most travelable” countries for those who avoid mass tourism and prefer to embrace original and more sustainable forms of travel.
To be listed here, a country needs to ensure a good level of security and sanitation, to excel in terms of convenience and basic infrastructure, and to be interesting from the naturalistic and cultural point of view. Click on each country name to access the corresponding travel guide. To learn more about how the Alternative Travel Index is calculated, please refer to this detail page.
