While coronavirus affects many sectors negatively, tourism is the leading one. Tourism professionals are of the opinion that even if the threat of coronavirus has disappeared, wounds will not be healed for many years in tourism. On the other hand, it is thought that tourists will stay away from popular abroad cities, big hotels with thousands of people and crowded tours. Camps, caravans and extreme sports will be at its peak instead.

Countries closed their borders, flights were canceled, curfews were imposed. Tourism has stopped completely. ”
Pointing out that people who have been in their homes for months after the epidemic has finished will want to travel more than ever, Olgar said, “Because traveling is a need. However, although people want to travel, they will not be as comfortable as before. They will avoid popular overseas cities, crowded tours, big hotels with thousands of people for a while. ” Orkun Olgar “At this point, there will be an increasing interest in holiday options such as boutique hotels and personalized packages. We expect the most increase in nature tours and adventure sports. ”
We are part of nature

The caravan is getting popular
According to Olgar, another type of tourism that will increase interest will be a caravan. Stating that the caravan is getting popular day by day due to their beauty such as being able to go wherever you want, waking up to a different view every morning, Olgar said, “When people wake up in the trailer in the forest, people will experience the magnificence of the smell of the forest.

Risky sports are now safe
Adventure lover Orkun Olgar, who also does extreme sports, is of the opinion that the interest in extreme sports will increase after coronavirus.
“Extreme sports such as mountain biking, diving, windsurfing, and paragliding can be of great interest, as they are usually done individually in nature. These sports are minimized in the extreme sports category in terms of the risks they carry, but because they are made away from people during the epidemic period, the risk of viruses is minimized. This makes them safe, at least in terms of coronavirus. ”
