Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The study explores understanding of ecotourists' experience in the ecotourism environment - an under-researched area. The paper points out that the evaluation of quality of experience appears to involve both attributes - functional elements that are provided by the service suppliers and affective/emotional elements that are brought about by the ecotourists themselves.
