Reconnect with nature with protected natural areas, with the agricultural countryside and its unique landscapes. Integrate yourself as a part of the community life, connect with its people, its heritage and culture. Get involved in projects, enjoy exchanging common experiences, travel in a slow mode (train; bicycle; walking…). Preserve the environment and with yourself. Make a positive impact to light up the new way of tourism, the durable tourism.
