Tour d’horizon 2011: Slovak Karst / Aggtelék Karst

A trans boundary exploration journey to the Landscape of the Year 2010/11

Experiencing nature, information, getting to know the region's culture, people and stakeholders – these are the core elements of a „Tour d'horizon“, which has established to a Naturefriends' brand for cross-border tourism.

As it was in former Landscapes of the Year, Naturefriends International as well developed the "Tour d’horizon" – a model tour for sustainable and border-crossing tourism - to the Landscape of the Year 2010/11 Slovak Karst – Aggtelek Karst. The exploration journey, which was organised in the end of June, focused on tour guides, group guides and hiking guides of the Naturefriends, who were interested in planning a journey to visit the Karst region with their own travel groups in future.

True to the motto "Caves and more ..." of the Landscape of the Year 2010/11 Slovak Karst – Aggtelek Karst, the participants of the seven-day journey were convinced by an entertaining program. Ágnes Szöke, the local German speaking tour guide of the Gömör-Torna foundation informed – with great commitment and specialised know-how - the participants on both sides of the Slovak-Hungarian border about nature, culture, and the local people of the region.
