Abstract

The paper notes that ecotourism as “good” tourism can take place only in the presence of legal restrictions based on proper monitoring and assessment of the impact on the environment. The purpose of restrictions in ecological tourism is: to ensure the harmony of the relationship between man and nature; to establish human responsibility for the preservation of nature; to create conditions for recreation tourists in the natural environment; etc. The state, of course, should contribute to the development of “good” tourism, including through the legal regulation of tourism activities. It is proposed to classify tourism into types on the basis of the scope of legal restrictions. Gradation of tourism from tourism with minimum legal restrictions to tourism with maximum legal restrictions is carried out. It is important that the legal restrictions set in the state would be fair and not excessive. The paper analyzes the existing legal restrictions in the field of ecotourism. It is noted that an important regulator of tourism activity is self-regulation of tourism. According to the authors, the effective restriction of tourism, including environmental one, is the human internal civic duty. It is emphasized that with a rational approach to the organization of tourist routes, it is possible not only to preserve nature in a pristine, but also to provide significant support for its protection.
