Slow Tourism: a cross-border and transectorial approach in the Butinier Pays du Mont Blanc

The ‘Butinier au Pays du Mont Blanc’ encourages slow tourism. It is a network of product and service providers across the French, Italian and Swiss sides in order to allow for a slow-pace, authentic discovery of the natural, cultural and social wealth of the region. It facilitates liaison between small-scale local actors across regional as well as branch frontiers, linking agriculture (cattle owners, pasture managers and local product producers – mostly cheeses, yogurts, honey, jams and wine), artisans (bell-making, wood sculpture), independent certified nature guides and small scale hostelry (mountain huts and B&B) with the local cultural heritage (little museums, including a bell tower and a mill, as well as art galleries) in order to create themselves a sustainable tourism offer complementary to the mainstream tourism catalogues and to international mass tourism on the popular Tour du Mont-Blanc

To know more on Good Practices about sustainable tourism in mountain areas, please have a look at:
The Alpine Convention Report: “Sustainable tourism in the Alps, report on the State of the Alps”, published in 2012 (page 56), which among others, describes this Good Practice.

Mountains are being strongly modified by climate change. In the Alps, glaciers decreased by half b/w 1900-2012. Thus, conditions for mountaineering are deteriorating, leading to more danger & technical difficulty of routes. How are Alpine guides adapting? https://t.co/kf9gl7XAds
