    Description

    Visiting wild areas as motivated by man’s desire to be in close contact with nature and to contemplate its beauty is an old recreational practice, done through activities such as hiking, hunting and picnicking. With post-war economic changes and technological innovations in multiple fields, there has been a significant increase in spare time, leading to a corresponding increase in the number of visitors to natural areas. As a consequence, recreation in those areas has been presented as an alternative to the social and economic development of their surrounding regions
