Giving Back to Our Communities 

Sustainable tourism aims to give back more than it takes from local communities. An example of a sustainable tourism product aimed at delivering community benefit is the Juliana Trail in the Soča Valley. This 270km long distance trail was developed to disperse visitors away from honeypot locations to underdeveloped rural areas. The trail has had a huge impact on these rural communities since launch, with one village alone establishing 8 new businesses due to the new tourist trade. Eurotravel Solutions will include projects like these in your proposal to support the local communities and grow sustainable tourism in Slovenia.
