To develop Amazon of Europe Bike Trail as a flagship Sustainable Tourism product and Unique Brand, the Project Partnership will firstly establish the Organisational and Information System, resulting in a joint Bookable Product with clear Unique Selling Proposition of incredible Riverine Landscapes. Based on Nature-oriented Visitor Guidance, existing Cycling Routes will be equipped with commonly designed Infrastructure (resting areas, info points), resulting in more than 1000 km of a joint Bike Trail along both sides of the rivers Mura, Drava and Danube.
