Hiking offers are in demand as never before. Tourist resorts in hiking regions have been enjoying increasing demand for years.
The conditions for winter tourism are becoming increasingly difficult:
When climate change causes temperatures to rise, interest in winter sports declines. After all, artificial snow bands instead of snow-covered landscapes are no longer attractive to many. Added to this are rising prices, war and uncertainty.
Therefore, offers away from winter are more future-oriented. Hiking as a leisure activity is particularly well suited to the zeitgeist.
It is sustainable, inexpensive and suitable for all age groups.
In addition it needs neither previous knowledge nor expensive equipment. But “only” good, creative hiking offers!
For decades, hiking in the local mountains could not compete with diving vacations in the Maldives.
Hiking was only something for the retired and their grandchildren.
Hiking offers were therefore limited to marked trails and the corresponding hiking maps.
Today, hiking is atttarctive again, for young and old. So there is a need for completely different, more exciting hiking offers to meet the expectations of these new target groups:
For adventurous youngsters and adrenaline junkies, for families with young children, for people with disabilities, for nature lovers thirsty for knowledge, and of course for the 50+ generation.
Each group certainly has different expectations. Therefore, it is important to first select the target group that “fits” the hiking area. And then tailor the hiking offers to them. This offers a great opportunity to attract completely new target groups for the summer and mid-seasons.
