Hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, kayaking…Outdoor Sports take place in versatile environments. Their benefits on human health and wellbeing are undeniable.

Another undeniable fact is that Outdoor Sports have an impact on nature. The good news is we can minimise those impacts by raising awareness through education, cooperation, and open dialogue.

That is why EUROPARC is working towards building a balanced relationship between Outdoor Sports and Protected Areas through versatile projects and initiatives.

In this section of our website, you will learn more about our cooperation with the European Network of Outdoor Sports (ENOS) and 10 Good Principles for Outdoor Sports in Protected Areas.
