Interreg ALCOTRA

Tour Science Project

Description of the project

Torgnon municipality is participating with ARPA Valle d’Aosta and CREA Mont-Blanc (Centre de recherches sur les écosystèmes d’altitude) in project TourScience – development of sustainable scientific ecotourism around Mt. Blanc, co-funded in the framework of the Programme INTERREG Italy-France ALCOTRA 2014-2020.

The scope of the Project is to create an innovative and sustainable tourist offer based on the observation of nature and its changes, to make the most of the environmental assets of Mt. Blanc and of Valle d’Aosta, areas that possess a wealth of history and scientific findings about which visitors often know nothing.

CREA Mont-Blanc and ARPA VdA contribute nature-related know-how, while Torgnon Municipality, with its experience of tourism and a strong territorial background, is experimenting with a route for visitors and new products that can make the most of the land and its specific scientific information.

The e-bike service – funded by TourScience as part of the INTERREG Italy-France ALCOTRA 2014-2020 program – is part of the project.
