DigiHike

Shaping sustainable local development in outdoor sports through volunteers’ skills development

DigiHike was designed to support new forms of tourism, with remote and rural areas at the centre of the traveller’s interest.

It aims to promote the so- called Adventure Tourism, a type of niche tourism, involving exploration and which may require special skills and physical exertion.

Adventure tourism is connected in its core with the natural environment, it can be a means for the creation of sustainable communities, encouraging tourists and travellers to visit remote areas and supporting to local economies.

As a matter of fact, not all the adventure tourists are experienced explorers or trekkers, on the contrary many of them are regular tourist looking for some exciting and unusual trips.

The growth of Adventure Tourism represents a huge opportunity for both organizations and communities active in mountain areas or in areas that attract tourists looking for outdoor activities.

However, small organizations often witness not only the lack of hard skills related to trekking, but also the lack of digital skills useful for their own promotion and that of the areas they are active in.

DigiHike intends to respond to the needs of the staff and volunteers of organizations active in the field of outdoor and rural development through: 

IO1

DigiHike Guide for the development of basic hiking skills

IO2

DigiHike Toolkit for the digital promotion of outdoor activities

Results

Trails

With the final aim to promote the natural and cultural heritage through outdoor experiences, project partners mapped and described 15 trails across Europe. Users will be able to get to know rural areas in each country and to get information regarding the trekking trails.
