Due to their natural conditions, their tourism tradition and the rich cultural heritage, the Alpine region has an enormous potential to sustainably use and develop it and at the same time to satisfy human needs for health, regionality and authenticity.
Nowadays people are increasingly willing to take responsibility for their own health. A growing number of health science studies show the positive influence of exercise in Alpine nature on specific diseases or their prevention. This scientific basis offers a variety of opportunities for the valorisation of the Alpine natural environment through the development of evidence-based health tourism offers. This trend creates a promising market for health tourism and opportunities for sustainable growth..
