In addition to preserving and promoting the value of geological heritage, geoparks also focus on environmentally-friendly ways of supporting tourism - the development of the specific branch of geotourism. Geotourism is now a popular trend in tourism. It provides an authentic experience, does not harm the environment, gets the local community involved and promotes the development of local services.

Geotourism enables people to learn more about the development of the landscape by actively spending time in rock towns, mining areas, tunnels and at fossil find sites, with explanatory information and the active involvement of the visitor.
