Santa Susanna participates in a Workshop organized by the Generalitat with the main operators in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland specializing in quality tourism

Santa Susanna has contacted the main sports tourism operators of Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland to provide an ideal place for this type of leisure. The action was carried out during the Sports Tourism Workshop organized by the Catalan Tourism Agency (ACT), which brought together the main operators in the Nordic countries. The municipality, which has the Certificate of Sports Tourism Destination granted by the ACT, has had the opportunity to explain to the main players in a market that is looking for quality spaces, the possibilities that Santa Susanna offers for the practice of sports such as football, handball, mountain biking, swimming, triathlon and even paddle tennis.

Santa Susanna has two essential assets that make it attractive in the eyes of the Nordic market to host a large number of athletes throughout the year; it has excellent infrastructure and sports facilities and can offer a range of hotels specialized in this type of tourism where to stay. In addition, the municipality is located in a place that has an optimum climate throughout the year, is halfway between Barcelona, Girona and the Costa Brava and is at the bottom of the Parc del Montnegre and El Corredor.

This promotion action between the various operators in the Nordic market and companies in the tourism and sports sector is part of the set of strategic lines to be carried out in the framework of the 2020 Year of Sports Tourism declared by the Department of Business and Knowledge of the Generalitat.
