What is enjoylocal?
Enjoylocal is an app for local experiences that is going to be launched, it is created to provide unique activities in Abruzzo and around the world.
Experiences have revolutionized the world of travel. This is the reason why we want to give the opportunity to travelers and those who want to take advantage of their free time in their territory to find and book experiences with locals . We want them to feel protagonists of the activity they will carry out together with locals and at the same time to express themselves by creating their own activities, guided independently in the place where they live.
What is an enjoylocal experience?
An enjoylocal experience is an activity that is not necessarily related to your profession, rather with your passions as long as they value the region where you live.
It’s a different activity than standard and impersonal tours, it will involve you in person because you will create, organize and guide your experience.
What kind of experiences can be offered?
All enjoylocal experiences enhance the territory and are linked to the beauties, products, traditions and customs of the region where they take place.
What’s obvious to you may not be obvious to another person. Do you know the secrets of where you live and would you be able to tell them to a group of people? Do you organize trekking and excursions in breathtaking places? Do you know a historical craftsman and would like to introduce him and his art to your guests? Do you love cooking, and would you be able to teach other people how to make traditional dishes of the place where you live? Would you like to organize horseback riding?
Each place has a lot to offer, so if you also love your territory and know the truest aspect, create your local experience and open the doors of your location to new guests.
I have ideas in mind, but I’ve never led experiences. Can I still propose my activity?
Sure. Enjoylocal hosts are not only professionals of tourism but also of other sectors that thanks to their skills and passions are able to offer an experience that reveals the authentic side of their place. An example? There are hosts work in the field of agriculture and offer experiences in their garden making live an unprecedented and truly authentic experience in their city.
