Green rural tourism has appeared in Europe earlier than in Ukraine. It is a new and unusual form of resting in Ukraine, but it is developing now.
In the wide sense green rural tourism means rest in the private farmsteads. Farmsteads may make you surprised by interesting and different activities and touristic objects.
If you’d like to rest in the village, you will have a lot of possibilities of different resting, except relaxing settings and delicious national dishes, such as walks in the forests, picking berries, fishing, swimming in the cleanest water.
European tourism usually practices living in the private farmsteads, taking a part in the villager’s work, such as harvesting, looking after cattle, etc.
Our tourists don’t ready for changes of usual form of the resting. We propose a lot of excursion programs for tourists, which may take a small period. Excursions let them try rural way of the life and feel all its amenities.
Happily, there are a lot interesting places on the map of Ukraine. Even the most exacting tourist will be surprised by the new interesting nice places.
You can admire amazing birds, enjoy their singing, walking through steep forest roads, taste delicious fresh dishes or make picnic on the open air.
You will get a chance of being in solitude with nature; enjoy its unstinting generosity and hospitality. This trip will be memorable and you will be sure, that green tourism is the best rest for you and your family. You won’t be indifferent to alive world after being alone with nature! One, who has been a member of green rural tourism, will be its admire forever!
If we talk about resting in the village as a separate form of the resting, we can make a supposition, that a lot of people won’t understand it. One part of people usually rests in villages and it is an ordinary way of their life. Other part thinks, that it is unusual resting.
Rest in the village is very popular and its popularity is increasing. Here are a lot of admirers of such form of resting. It is an unquestionable fact! The reasons of its popularity – our usual rest in the seaside became boring, the mountains couldn’t make us surprised. The daily routine of hotel or sanatorium makes us boring, and we need something unbelievable. It is the reason of village tourism’s development. “All of genius is easy!”- is a motto of the rest in the village.
Rest in the village may be compared with the exotic tourism, because population of the cities and towns considers village way of the life an exotic, and villagers don’t represent other live.
Rest in the village is the calm life style unknown to many people, it keeps a lot of surprises. The food includes fresh vegetables, fruits, berries, which is an ecological pure products, raised by the farmer’s hands. Rest in the village includes daily picnics and heart-to-heart talking near the fire to near to your heart people.
Rest in the village is the other world, returning us to the past. During village rest you must change a bath on summer shower, alarm-clock on rosters song. And it is the charm of the rest in the village!
Ecological tourism is associated with green or village (rural) tourism. This form of tourism lets contact between people and nature, such as resting in environmentally safe places of our country, trips and overnight stays in encampments, trips on foot, visits to the parks, closed woods or reserves.
If we talk about ecological tourism, we should remember about state of environment in over the world and in our country. State of environment is the most important fact in development of such form of resting, as ecological tourism.
“Ecologically pure” way of life has become the most popular in the most of developed countries from over the world. This fact lets ecological tourism became so popular.
In the high-tech century we usually forget about picnics, open air walking, we don’t think about importance of resting for our body.
A half of our life we spend at work, we try to earn money and forget about our health.
Ecotourism includes not only trips in the far villages or trips with rucksack. We need only to spend weekend in the cottage, to wake up with sunrise, to listen for the bird’s singing, to look to the stars, to eat a fish soup made with our own hands.
After such rest ecotourism will be your favorite form of the resting.
