When the word ecotourism is brought to mind, many think of Lonely Planet with treks into the rain forest of Costa Rica or sailing in a felucca down the Nile. However, this term also pertains to support conservation for even modern or nearby urban surroundings.

There are many destinations that are designed for lovers of ecotourism. One is located  just 35 miles from Los Angeles. Santa Catalina Island has been known  for yachtsmen and Hollywood stars as a quick getaway retreat.

The island holds a special place for those who seek an ecotourism trek along the Trans-Catalina Trail also. This hike and bike trail is 37 miles long from the northern tip of the island to the southern tip. A visit from end to end need not be done by foot with camping gear in tow.

One of the main attractions is a Jeep Eco-Tour, which rides on vehicle roads, wide valleys, hills of two thousand feet and beaches. There are also guided tours of the majestic Wrigley Memorial and Botanical Gardens, with 50 thousand square feet of gardens with native plants, and exotic animal species in danger of extinction.

With all this exploring, carrying an authentic Louis Vuitton Ellipse Backpack is in order. After all, this is the chic Catalina Island for those who need an escape from LA.  Leave it to Louis Vuitton to come to the rescue with not only a functional bag to trek the globe with but also one that radiates true fashionista style.
