Legislation on walks beyond the beaten path
Lawmakers are working on ways to ensure responsible and sustainable travel in the countryside
 

The Ministry of Health and the Interior has announced that work has officially started on creating a legal framework for walks in rural areas.

As the number of locals and tourists venturing beyond the beaten path in the countryside continues to rise, the need for a detailed plan on how to coordinate this has also become increasingly clear.

The Ministry of Health and the Interior, the Ministry of Fisheries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Prime Minister’s Office are now preparing a proposal which will include provisions on walking, preservation, consideration and fees relating to travel in the countryside.

The overall objective of the new legislation is environment conservation – to help farmers in their daily work, preserve the rights of local citizens to travel in their own country while also respecting the rights of tourists.
