Due to land constraints on the planet, most facilities are located in urban areas. As such, the importance of the development of ecotourism has gradually been highlighted. According to this, the purpose of this study was to identify the intensive and extensive tourism sites in the three categories of suitable and semi- suitable and unsuitable areas based on ecological ability for warm seasons in the city of Nowshahr. In this regard, the ecotourism tourism model was used with climatic criteria of temperature, rainfall, hill shade and slope, geology and land use. Then, tourism sites were identified using GIS technique and conditional methods and algebraic composition. After analysis, 519 suitable sites were identified with a total area of 4,838 hectares and often in central altitude (1300-1800 meters) and east-west along the road and rivers of the city of Noshahr. Approximately, 158 tourism sites were identified with an area of about 74.8 hectares in the middle and upstream (about 2550-4000 meters) in the city of Noshahr. In general, extensive suitable sites have a wider distribution and less area than intensive suitable sites.
