LLI-483 Use of Unique Geological and Geomorphological Nature Values in the Development of Green Cognitive Tourism (GEOTOUR)

Zemgale, Šiauliai and Panevėžys regions are rich with unique geological and geomorphological objects that have been formed over the centuries. However, tourism potential of such unique natural objects as hot falls, caves, rock outcrops and many other is not used in full. The overall objective of the project is to increase the number of visitors to this territory. Thus, new possibilities for sustainable and cognitive tourism focussing on geological and geomorphological objects and expositions will be created and promoted, and at the same time knowledge and competences of the persons involved in tourism sector will be enhanced.

During the project it is planned to identify unique geological and geomorphological objects in the partner regions and elaborate new cross-border tourism route. Also, multifunctional cognitive velopark in Aizkraukle, informative stands and cognitive expositions near the geological and geomorphological objects in the Biržai Regional Park, museum of Skaistkalne and Aizkraukle will be established.

For the promotion of the new route visits for media and tourism professionals and three video- clips promoting regional geotourism will be produced, as well as a number of such public events, like trekking in Vecumnieki, Conference about geological objects in Žagare and seminar about karst processes in Biržai will be organised. Local professionals of the tourism sector and stakeholders will have a possibility to improve their skills in study visit to one of the countries – Austria, Czech Republic or Slovakia, and within trainings for guides and tourism sector.

The project aims to create sustainable and cognitive tourism offer, increase the flow of visitors in regions and enhance the knowledge and awareness of the unique nature values around us.
