ABSTRACT. – The Sustainable Development of Tourism in the Land of Beiuș through Recreational Activities and Tourist Animation. The issue of sustainable development has lately encroached several areas including tourism, due to the strong impact it had on this environment and local culture. By linking the concept of sustainable tourism with recreational and tourist animation we wanted to highlight a new way to change the concept of tourism as a “destructive factor” of the natural environment and highlight an area less known for its elements that targets tourism. What Beiuş Land has to offer to become a sustainable tourism destination is reflected in the outstanding cultural values, crafts still well-preserved, natural resources that can be exploited through hiking, speleology, cycling and, not least, dowry-related people and ancestral traditions. Habitat development strategy targets the idea of meeting the needs of present tourists keeping in mind the protection of the environment and providing opportunities for future sustainable development strategies under the auspice thought of durable development.
Keywords: sustainable tourism, tourism animation, entertainment, Beiuş Land, cultural values.
