Abstract: 

Rural tourism is developing in a lot of countries and is becoming increasingly more important day to day. Perhaps the reason lies in stagnancy of rural agriculture economy. The villages of Iran are not an exception and their income sources need to be considered serious since tourism is becoming more important due to agriculture stagnancy during the recent decades. The main goal of this study which is a case study of Sorin village in Baneh is to present applicable strategies for making the best use of this income source using strategic technique and SWOT model that is ultimately compatible with sustainable development. The research type was a field study. In the study, it was found that, despite the historical, natural, religious and cultural attractions of the village, positive effects of tourism on the economy and the village had no role. Undoubtedly, with proper planning, creating infrastructure services, residency improvement and catering facilities, advertising on rural tourism, the economy of this village as well as other villages will be changed dramatically. Accordingly, tourism can be incorporated into other economic activities as a complementary one so that the subsequent social status, physical and environmental conditions of the villages in the area can be improved.
