Tourist activity that respects the environment

The type of tourism that shows responsibility towards the natural environment that is promoted by the network favours visits to natural, relatively unspoilt areas, to be able to enjoy, study and appreciate the nature and the culture of the past as well as the present, promoting its preservation, generating a low impact of visitors and tourists and, at the same time, ensuring that the active participation should be beneficial for the local population.
