Impressions of DestiMED's ITO Training in Albania

From 9 to 10 April, DestiMED project visited Albania to offer a training session for ecotourism tour operators and tour leaders focused on interpretation and guiding.

The ITO training event was attended by professional tour guides from many different protected areas, such as Circeo National Park, Sierra Nevada, Menorca, Provence Evasion, Nomada Viatges, AAO Birdlife, Bureau des Guides Naturalistes, Colline Metaliffere, Torre del Cerrano and Il Viaggio di Kilroy.

During the training sessions, participants had the opportunity of spending a full day learning from expert trainers, including Nanda Rivera from Costa Rica, who shared her perspectives and experiences working with the international ecotourism market.

They also spent a second day in the field, putting the training into practice with a guided visit in Divjake-Karavasta National Park. Thanks to our hosts at NAPA (AKZM Agjencia Kombëtare e Zonave të Mbrojtura) for a great training event!
