Abstract: The initiation of projects concerning the delimitation of areas that should be protected against any economic activity is fully justified, regarding the amplification of the human pressure on the components of the geographical environment. Therefore, any study about such protected areas (and all the more National Parks) should be realized with all responsibility, including every aspect that may influence these areas. Furthermore, such studies must elaborate specific strategies, whose implementation will support the sustainable development of the region. The Rodnei Mountain National Park (RMNP) became, beginning with the 1st May 2004, a protected, functional area, and its administration, based in Rodna, tries by special strategies to encourage the development of ecotourism, as a fundamental part of the concept of sustainable development. The absence of an consistent and coherent educational system, along with a poor financial support for the protected areas in order to promote the values of their biodiversity, effected a small percentage of eco-tourists among the total number of tourists visiting the RMNP. For this reason, the contrast between aspiration and reality remain significant.
