ECOROUTES – Ecotourism Routes in the Cross-Border Area for the Promotion of Alternative Tourism
Kukës and Rahovec abound with attractive natural and cultural destinations, however, a diverse and comprehensive tourist offer combining the best of all tourist destinations in the cross border area is still lacking. This has limited the area’s potential for becoming a tourism hotspot. The unexploited natural beauties, insufficient awareness and information on existing routes/trails, inadequate mapping, lack of qualitative services, trained workforce and experts in eco-tourism and lack of eco-tourism mentality among locals, has hindered the development of the tourism industry in this area. This project aims to facilitate cooperation and encourage the sustainable exploitation of the attractive sites of the Kukës-Rahovec area to boost the growth of the tourism industry in the cross border area.
