Forests have many ecotourism attractions. Ecotourism can be defined as an opportunity to promote the values in the protected areas and to finance for related stakeholders. However, ecotourism can be classified as a possible threat to ecosystems because of ecotourism's attractions are based on fragile ecological relations. Activity selection regarding ecological, social and economic dimensions is important in forest and tourism management. Ecotourism activities were selected using a multi-criteria decision model based on an ELECTRE method. The model that was applied with a participatory approach consists of 19 alternates and 28 criteria. While horse-riding was determined to be the best activity, shooting and sportive fishing activities were determined to be the worst.
