Its core aim targets to market and further develop alternative forms of tourism such as eco-tourism, nature/landscape, cultural, gastronomic, off the beaten track trails, hiking, sports, cycling and various others that add value in destination marketing such as digital tourism. Sustainability and nature preservation are NATTOUR’s top priorities.
Its first project in cooperation with Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature (HSPN) the new label «Bike Friendly Hotel» is introduced to serve the vast increase in cyclist tourism demands for sustainable tours when traveling.
The activities of the “A.M.K.E.” NATTOUR for the Cycling Tourism with the label “Bike Friendly” has been placed under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism.
BIKE FRIENDLY HOTELS
“BIKE FRIENDLY HOTELS” network has been launched to meet the continuously uprising demand for the so called “slow” tourism products. Cycling tourism enables the visitor to really discover the area by stopping by at all points of interest and finally resting at the closest bike friendly hotel. Besides the obvious wellbeing benefits of exercise and environmental awareness, the project also initiates social and economical impact to all related areas.
The labeled hotels of the network will be a benchmark for all Greek and international cycling related tour operators and travel agents.
All types of lodges can join the network by a simple and straight forward process that requires fulfillment of some basic and eligible criteria that will guarantee a solid cycling experience for guests and visitors alike.
