Abstract: Agritourism is a rather marginal but growing form of tourism across the globe, which seems to constitute a new market trend. However, agritourism is not very well known, its outlines remain unclear and are the subject of a scientific debate. How to define agritourism and what are its outlines? The aim of this research is to propose a formal definition of the concept, as well as a positioning in relation to the related fields of ecotourism and gastronomic tourism. This synthesis reinforces the extended view of agritourism which takes into account the new forms of agritourist activities observed in the field. It has theoretical and practical implications.
