City of Wetlands
Tourism and Conservation in the city of Llanquihue
The tourist activity of Llanquihue has presented an important development in recent years, however it is still a diamond in the rough. The recent implementation of various public infrastructure projects and a set of initiatives for the conservation of the city’s wetland network have helped to strongly position this place as an important destination in the region.
Today, the community of Llanquihue is at a key moment to define what type of tourism it wants to favor and promote. Due to this, initiatives by Fundación Legado Chile arise to help the lack of regulation of the sector, increase subsistence alternatives in the local economy and empower the community towards its city.
The project “Tourism and Conservation in the city of Llanquihue” aims to train 10 tourism entrepreneurs in the city to enhance tourism as a tool for conservation and enhancement of biodiversity and natural heritage of Llanquihue.
The project included 5 training instances focused on market analysis workshops, good practices of sustainable tourism, associativity and appreciation of flora and fauna of the area together with experts in the area of sustainable tourism, communication, design and development of tourism material
The project culminated with a milestone open to the community where the final result of this project was invited: the first “Llanquihue Sustainable Tourism Guide” along with a short tour of Llanquihue through the project participants.
