Abstract: 

Nowadays tourism industry, especially ecotourism, as a new approach has a significant role to extend the adaptation of man and his surrounding nature as well as economic development. In this regard, Mazandaran province due to its pristine and beautiful nature has significant advantages. The purpose of this study was to introduce Mazandaran province as one of the poles of ecotourism. The research findings showed that this region due to having its unique geographical position and pleasant climate, especially in spring and summer, as well as the interesting scenes of nature has the potentiality to be one of the greatest poles of ecotourism in our country. However there are some barriers to achieve this goal the most prominent of which are various decision makers, management of the province, and weak infrastructure. Additionally, the main purpose of this research was to recognize and analyze the attractions of the province and also recognizing the capabilities of this province based on the various branches of this industryto determine the level of the province according to the 9 main factors related to the attraction of ecotourists. The method of this research is a descriptive one as far as the scope and nature of it requires. Bing information about the ecotourism of the province and sorting the data on the basis of TOPSIS model, the researcher has categorized the potentialities of this province. Based on the final TOPSIS grading cities such as Sari, Chalus, Savadkuh, Ramsar, and Noor were considered to be good places for ecotourism while cities like Joibar, Noshahr, Neka, and Ghemshahr do not have such a potentiality. As a result, the study shows that the province is in a good condition as far as the ecotourism indexes are concerned.
