The article considers specific features relating to compositional arrangement of excursion routes. The practical significance of the results is that they enable one to use the proposed principles and techniques for improving excursion routes taking into account the restoration and preservation of existing historical and cultural objects. The study reviews practical experiences in excursion route organization, existing classifications of routes and factors that influence them. The article outlines a theoretical model of excursion route for identifying internal organization principles of scenario perception. An algorithm for tackling excursion route improvement challenges is proposed, and recommendations are provided for optimal use of arrangement principles and techniques (or their combinations). In their selection, one should be guided by the existing classification of routes and factors that affect them.

Key words: excursion route improvements, route scenario, route composition, landscape
