    Description

    One of the factors in local tourism could be nature tourism promotion for disabled people in protected areas. This social group is more sensitive to long-distance travel; therefore, it is likely that local tourism is especially attractive. The disabled population may possibly have more free time, which also makes local travel particularly attractive. The main focus while developing disabled people's opportunities in nature should be imposed on three parallel tracks: 1) a consistent segment-oriented policy, 2) assurance of its feasible implementation, and 3) promotion of the motives to travel. One of them by itself wouldn't be enough.
