Plan your next holiday

Traditional European natural areas and landscapes are highly popular tourist destinations, making these resources an important consideration in tourism development. However, data about preferences for landscape features have so far been missing but is crucial to develop a successful tourism policy. 

Now, you can help with collection of this data and plan your next holiday at the same time, in three very easy steps. Alterra have developed an interactive website,, which allows visitors to use the Landscape Holiday Planner to input their holiday preferences and then receive a personalised map of destinations in Europe to suit. The map can then also guide to local hotels in the area. Have a go!
