Partir Ici

a free information service for your customers

What if you used  to provide your customers with ideas for sustainable activities around your site? is an initiative by Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Tourisme, to help develop local tourism in collaboration with tourist offices and socio-professionals, in a qualitative way, across the entire region and throughout the year.

Accessible via a simple search engine, the Partir Ici online guide offers ideas for outings for local residents and visitors to the region.

Its promise: to suggest unusual activities that set you apart.

The guide offers certified sustainable activities, with a choice of themes (well-being, the outdoors, gastronomy, culture, etc.) and off the beaten track! It highlights activities conducive to encounters with local players, in the aim of creating a special visitor experience.
Thanks to its geolocation feature, your customers will be able to find all the possibilities in the vicinity of your accommodation. As for the “Tested for You” articles written by the Partir Ici community, these inspire visitors to try out new activities and immerse them in an atmosphere before they even get here. They’re the best way to persuade visitors to come.
