Visitor Education

Responsible travel starts with awareness and education.

Destination Management Organizations, tourism businesses and community groups have an important role to play in ensuring our destination can be enjoyed by generations to come. With the unprecedented growth of rural travel and outdoor recreation, now more than ever, it is our collective responsibility to ensure visitors respect the nature, the places and the people and contribute to the stewardship efforts.

Kootenay Rockies Tourism (KRT) has developed visual information pieces and compiled key messaging to educate residents and visitors on how to behave responsibly while travelling and recreating in the region. KRT tourism businesses can access, download and print the infographic piece to post at their property or share via their website and through their digital channels, at no cost.

Consistency in Messaging is Key

A clear and consistent message, displayed through many channels along the visitor journey – from trip planning to in-destination experience to post-trip reminiscing on social media – can significantly influence visitor behaviour.

Tourism businesses, DMOs and community groups
interested in including the
Responsible Travel Messaging on their website
can conveniently choose from
the various digital web tiles displayed below.

Visitor Code of Conduct Poster

The Visitor Code of Conduct infographic was developed in an effort to compile and summarize the various aspects of responsible travel that are relevant to our tourism region.

It is based on official sources and provincial, national and international standards and resources through collaboration with lead organizations such as BC Adventure Smart, the Invasive Species Council of BC, Wild Safe BC, Avalanche Canada, Leave No Trace Canada, the BC Wildfire Service , the BC Fish and Wildlife Branch, Trails BC, the BC Forest Safety Council and others.
