With an energy system powered by the elements, fluorescent light bulbs throughout and incredibly well insulated rooms, Hotel Terra continues to preserve and protect the indoor and outdoor environment of Jackson Hole.

Siwash Lake Ranch, British Columbia

Taking care of the land is the guiding philosophy at Siwash and the priority is preserving the pristine piece of land the resort was built upon. Whilst earning its reputation as a luxury guest ranch, Siwash is now considered as a world class eco-resort too, having been given the highest possible rating for sustainability. From monitoring the water levels of Siwash Lake, maintaining vegetation and nesting boxes and taking care of species counts, much of which guests can get involved with, to using cutting edge environmental technology and running solely on solar energy, the ranch is well equipped with many aspects to promote environmental protection.

Wickanninish Inn, British Columbia

The Wickanninish was built with sustainability in mind. The owners wanted to preserve the oceanfront area in front of the hotel as much as possible and ensured all vegetation outside the building was left in its pristine state (the position of the Pointe restaurant was adjusted by a few metres to protect an ancient cedar tree). Any trees chopped down now form the walls of the lobby, library and café and stocks only ecological and organic products in its spa.
