|HIKING EUROPE – Discovering Rural Europe|
Naturefriends International is responsible for the sustainable implementation of the EU project “Hiking Europe”. Together with the different project partners, concepts and products for sustainable hiking tourism in Catalonia, Emilia-Romagna, Donegal and Dubrovnik-Neretva are being developed. The overall aim is the creation of tourism offers that support small and medium enterprises in rural areas. The new hiking packages will be promoted through „Roadbooks“ and a website after they are finished, in order to draw attention from hiking lovers from all over Europe. To support regions with little know-how about hiking tourism in implementing the concept, a management plan will be developed within this pilot project. Trainings with local stakeholders will accompany the implementation as well.
Once the project is finished at the end of 2017, the Hiking Europe label will help regions with sustainable hiking tourism to promote their packages on a European level.
