The extensive growth of the tourism sector entails both beneficial economic contribution and negative environmental and socio-economic impacts. In order to protect the resources tourism is based upon, greater levels of sustainability are needed (Swarbrooke 1999, Budeanu 2007, Gössling 2009, Pomering et al. 2011). The UNWTO defines sustainable tourism as “tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, and the environment and host communities” (UNWTO, 2013). Sustainable tourism products intend to respect and protect the environment and the culture of the destination travelled to. Also, they involve socially acceptable working conditions and bring socio-economic contributions to the destination (Belz/Peattie 2012; Wehrli et al. 2015).
