Overall aim

In Psiloritis UNESCO Global Geopark, digital visiting has become available. By providing the opportunity to tour the geopark from a distance, locals, as well as non-locals, are now able to visit even the most distant parts of the geopark, directly from their home. Local food and craft producers have also gained promotion through this initiative.

Brief description

The geopark has developed an interactive online map presenting all the natural and cultural features of the geopark together with local products and activities. The online tools include also a storytelling map that offers stories and information of the geopark through videos and traditional songs. The digital visitor can go on virtual tours along trails and discover the most hidden aspects of the geopark through a 360° panorama view.


The replicability aspect is finding new ways to maintain and spread interest and knowledge of local heritage through digital solutions. By being creative and using multiple different ways of engaging the visitors, from virtual walks to music, the community can maintain and perhaps even widen its’ reach.
