This chapter discusses how ecotourism is not only about environmentalism but also about power. Ecotours can work to structure vision, separate nature, and culture, and proffer discourses of science and romanticism that have the effect of “truth”. Ecotours offer a kind of visual grammar for natural beauty, backed up by a long history of romantic encounters with wilderness and narratives of a national nature. The ecotour also offers an opening to think about the relationship between the human and nonhuman in different ways.
