Title

Health tourism in low mountains: a case study


Abstract

Health tourism is a specific type of tourism with great prospects. Most people do not have time for long trips, but there is a great need for a change of scenery and restoration of strength. There are many examples when in the regions in order to improve health and relaxation, nearby areas are being developed. It is most promising to create programs for such tourism near existing resorts that have the necessary infrastructure and medical facilities, while individual client requests must be taken into account. It is proposed to research health tourism as a territorial tourist complex, which includes not only specialized infrastructure but also territories adjacent to resorts. It is noted that low-mountain areas have the most suitable spaces for tourism development. By the example of the Belokurikha resort, the goals of visiting and tourist satisfaction are identified, as well as the possibilities of developing health tourism. A model for designing individual programs for health tourism is proposed.
