Abstract: Alienation describes the mood of people who have become the tool rather than the goal in the functioning of the capitalist society. The man has alienated to product, business and most importantly himself because of depreciating against materials. The topic of the study is the man (tourist) who is looking for this spiritual poverty in leisure activities. The aim of this study is to demonstrate the socio-psychological relationship between alienation and tourism. Following the review of the literature demonstrating the relationship between alienation and tourism, the Alienation Cycle in Tourism was created. The cycle of alienation explains how a tourist, psychologically, participates in tourism activities and behaves in touristic life besides clarifying sociological environment of tourism.
