Main Description

Interest in ecotourism in Scandinavia has seen recent growth. Extended forests, rivers, and lakes allow for a great variety of nature-based activities, such as hiking, mushroom collecting, kayaking, snow mobiling and bird watching, making Scandinavia a unique region from a nature-based tourism perspective. Ecotourism in Scandinavia: Lessons in Theory and Practice is the first book to comprehensively describe, analyse and evaluate aspects of Scandinavian ecotourism and will appeal to researchers and students of ecotourism.
