Start of the Thematic Network - MTB and Surf/Board sports.

Partnership for West Coast Tourism is a network-based and project-oriented organisation.

The goal of the partnership is to be a platform and catalyst which should work to explore further development in already established organisations and collaborations.

One of the focus areas of this is the establishment of a network which is to focus on growth and development, while also create cohesion and local anchoring.

The Partnership for West Coast Tourism has been working with descriptions of five project-oriented thematic based networks, with the focus on active nature experiences / outdoor-tourism. 

The five thematic networks are MTB, Surf/Boardsports, angling, horseback riding and hiking. The first two networks to be implemented are the MTB network and the Surf/Boardsports network.

The first meeting for the network of MTB-tourism was held at Slettestrand Holiday Center.
