In spring, the Pallars Jussà organizes numerous events and activities aimed at groups specializing in tourism, national and international. Specifically, between May and the beginning of June, three activities of this kind have been organized in the region, in which the GPS Tourism project has been made known:
On Saturday, May 4, the objectives and actions of this Interreg POCTEFA project were presented to a group of twelve American journalists and travel agencies. On its route through the most outstanding landmarks of the Pyrenees in the field of Romanesque art, a stop was established in the Pobla de Segur, where the installations of the new image of the Sports and Nature Station, rehabilitated thanks to the project, were shown. They also carried out activities related to sustainable mobility such as the kayak ride through the Cellers swamp.
On Thursday, the 23rd of May, the celebration of the XXV days of the tourist offices of Catalonia took place in La Pobla de Segur. On this occasion a visit was again made to the space of the rehabilitated station, which houses the tourism office of the municipality, the center for attention to walkers and cyclists and the exhibition space of the region. During the visit, a presentation of the GPS Tourism project was presented to the public of more than 60 OOTT workers.
On Thursday, June 6, the rural houses of Girona met in La Pobla de Segur and the multifaceted space was presented again, together with the GPS Tourism explanation, as a pioneering project in the region in terms of sustainable tourist mobility. This group of about twenty entrepreneurs was very receptive to the project and generated a debate on the importance of the sustainable vision of tourism and the interest of cross-border work.
It is expected to carry out more related activities, aimed at the specialized public, in the coming months. The GPS Tourism project is also scheduled to be present at the TourNatur tourism fairs in Dusseldorf (Germany) in September and at the International Tourism and Travel Fair (SITV) in Colmar (France) in November.
