Feautured Activities

Around 60 companies in the rural tourism sector could benefit from this work, aimed at boosting the autumn campaign in these tourist establishments.

Within the framework of the competition of ideas promoted by the Cluster of Tourism of Galicia, the Galician Federation of Rural Tourism (Fegatur) and the Galician Association of Rural Tourism (Agatur), are developing a pilot experience of developing a catalogue of products in the rural tourism sector for the next autumn campaign 2018. To this end, during these months of the summer season, a series of working meetings are being held with the different members in order to make progress in the articulation of these proposals for complementary activities.

The objective is that the accommodation offer in Galicia is completed with an attractive proposal of complementary activities that allow the traveller to offer a more complete and enriching experience. Throughout the month of July, the first working meetings have already taken place with the associations Mar de Compostela, Campo y Mar, Ribeira Sacra Rural and Agatur, with the participation of around thirty establishments. The creativity and enthusiasm of the participants are being one of the characteristics of the process.

“The objective is to be able to articulate a multiplicity of tourist proposals aimed at revitalising rural houses between October and November, so that the different initiatives that both local rural tourism associations and individual establishments usually carry out during this period of reduced activity are valued”, explains the secretary of the Tourism Cluster of Galicia, Cesáreo Pardal, president of Fegatur. It is also planned to incorporate new proposals that will allow us to verify the degree of acceptance between Galician travellers and those from outside Galicia on an experimental basis.

Once all this information has been gathered and this catalogue has been drawn up, the campaign to promote rural tourism in Galicia will start at the end of September with an action called “Come on weekend with rural tourism in Galicia”, which the participating establishments are planning in a participative way in the working sessions and which seeks to draw the attention of the public to the experiences that can be lived in Galicia with the help of rural tourism establishments.

Meeting in Compostela
Throughout the month of August, contacts and meetings with different entities of the Galician rural tourism sector will continue, but in addition, a meeting open to the entire sector has been scheduled for 30 August in Santiago de Compostela. The open day to publicize this initiative will take place at 5 pm in Classroom 1 of the library of the Cidade da Cultura. Any rural tourism establishment or rural tourism association interested in participating in this initiative can contact estudos.fegatur@gmail.com or telephone 667445596.
