Ecotourism

 

La Bianchina is affiliated with ECEAT, the European Centre for Eco- and Agro- Tourism. ECEAT promotes small scale tourism in rural areas and tries to maintain valuable natural and cultural areas. The only way to save nature is to give it economic value. Ecotourism (small-scale tourism in nature) is the way to help to preserve nature.

 

If natural areas are protected and there take place small-scale ecotourism activities, the surrounding residents can earn money with the lifting of the entrance fees, tour of the visitors and the provision of accommodations and restaurants. This way residents work for their source of income: the nature. It is therefore that ecotourism is the way to protect nature reserves.
