dc.description.abstractMacro-level issues such as climate change and heightened efforts for sustainable future life have focused attention on the Arctic. It is not uncommon to be presented with comparable before-and-now photos of some Arctic scenes to demonstrate fast-melting ice and snow in the region and the subsequent effects such as rising sea level (Hodell et al., 1991), changing flora and fauna (Chapin et al., 2012), and subsidence and other changes associated with rapidly melting permafrost (Romanovsky and Oster­kamp, 1997). In tandem with these macro-level climatological and geophysical trends, the Arctic has also been increasingly in the limelight as a tourist destination (Pashkevich, 2014). Much of the attention given to the Arctic in tourism studies, indeed, can be attributed to the omnipresent effects of climate change, which is felt imminently and acutely in the region. However, the bigger and more ominous matter of global climate change and sustainable future life seem to occupy most research and business efforts, so that parallel efforts to understand their implications for Arctic tourism are still rather limited.
