Georgian protected areas earn 5 mln GEL in revenue in 2021
22 October, 2021

The Agency of Protected Areas of Georgia has reported 5 million GEL in revenue from ecotourism in 2021.

In the first three quarters of 2021, revenue earned from visitors reached 4.87 million GEL, up 5.8x from the 845,000 the agency earned in the same period in 2020. 

The protected areas of Georgia, which reopened on May 26, had been closed for seven months due to pandemic-related regulations. From May to September, the country’s multitude of parks and canyons received over half a million visitors.

The Agency of Protected Areas expects to receive even more visitors next year, when the epidemiological situation improves.

This month, Georgia presented a 10-year ecotourism strategy which aims to make the country a leading ecotourism destination in the Caucasus region by 2030.
