Ecotourism implies a great opportunity to develop areas that have the necessary resources and conditions, a safe alternative for integrating natural landscapes and biodiversity in tourism activity. Romania has an important ecotourism heritage, with great potential for capitalization. However, this domain faces many problems related to poor cooperation at the local level, poor development of ecotourism infrastructure, lack of qualified workforce, insufficient promotion. The main priorities for the development of ecotourism in Romania aim to improve the institutional and associative framework, development of visitor infrastructure, education and awareness of the visitors and the local communities, human resource development, local business development, nature protection and conservation, marketing and promotion of ecotourism product.
