The article examines tourist and recreational resources in the Republic of Dagestan and identifies development prospects of the new type of tourism, for which the region has all necessary recreational and infrastructural opportunities. The subject of research is motorcycle tourism as a promising type of outdoor activity in Dagestan providing a person with a unique opportunity to make an unforgettable trip to the most beautiful and inaccessible protected areas which are impossible to reach by other modes of transport. The purpose of research is to study world practices, analyse modern trends and methods of organising motorcycle tourism in order to substantiate further development of this tourism in Dagestan. The strategy for the socio-economic development of the North Caucasian Federal District until 2025 involves creating a mountain recreational cluster in the North Caucasian republics. However, today, despite Dagestan’s unique natural, historical and cultural resources, its tourism sector lags far behind Russia’s leading tourist destinations. The reasons are underdeveloped tourist infrastructure, the state of the road network and accommodation facilities. But for motorcycle tourism some challenges and a certain archaic local lifestyle can become a significant advantage of the tourist route. New tourist programs and original motorcycle routes based on the professional and safe content can attract additional tourist flows and give impetus to the socio-economic and tourist development of the region.
