Abstract

Sustainable tourism is a tourism concept that provides sustainability for tourist destinations in the future, where geo-tourism is part of it. Geotourism development in conservation is an action to protect the geo-site from damage. The research area is located in Silalahi Village on the coast of Toba Caldera, rich in geodiversity and historical-cultural suitable for young visitors. The factors of this study, i.e., Environmental Conservation Activities and Cultural Conservation Activities, were investigated using the mixed method. This study shows geotourism development based on the conservation aspect for youth tourists during the COVID-19 pandemic in Silalahi Village.
