The aim of this paper is how and in what way to stimulate and activate the villagers bordering areas of
Northeastern Macedonia, in order to revive the country for sustainable rural tourism. It is emphasized that
tourism can greatly improve the lives of people who live in those areas. When it comes to rural households,
often ignored is the fact that many of them in addition to dealing with agriculture and other complementary
activities, such as forestry, handicraft processing, services and even tourism. This is especially important
for small farms, which are not able to achieve a high enough income with just dealing with agricultural
activity, and their education should include these additional activities. With traditional manufacturing and
food preparation, equal and rural tourism activity should be included as a supplementary activity and in the
restoration of these villages and the overall development of rural areas. When agriculture and tourism are
connected, the number of young people not leaving the rural areas would be growing, and the ones already
there would rearrange their homes for accommodating tourists. Tourism can be considered as the most
appropriate activity that will contribute to the increase of various economic activities in these areas.
