The study trip took place last March and it was organized in collaboration between the businesses and development organizations of Lauhanvuori – Hämeenkangas UNESCO Global Geopark and Kraatterijärvi Geopark areas. The organizers were the GEOfood – Local Food and Geological Heritage (Satafood) project and the GEOfood and Kraatterijärvi GEOpark (ProAgria South Ostrobothnia) project.

During the trip, we visited four Geopark areas in central and northern Portugal: all GEOfood partners: Naturtejo UNESCO Global Geopark, UNESCO Global Estrela Geopark, Terras de Cavaleiros UNESCO Global Geopark, and Arouca UNESCO Global Geopark.

The trip focused on exploring the successful implementation of the GEOfood brand and the experiences offered by the Geoparks from a tourism perspective. There were 16 entrepreneurs and stakeholders participating in the trip to learn and gather ideas for developing their own Geopark areas.

Be proud of your region, your production, and do not hesitate to share it! This was undoubtedly the most significant takeaway the group gained from the trip.
