New Issues in Polar Tourism traces and analyzes a decade of growing interest in the polar regions, and the consequent challenges and opportunities of increasing tourist traffic in formerly remote and seldom-visited places. The book arises from the recently-formed International Polar Tourism Research Network?(IPTRN), and documents the outcomes of its 2010 conference, held at Swedens Abisko Scientific Research Station.

This book surveys and analyzes a decade of growing interest in polar regions, and the consequent challenges and opportunities of increasing tourist traffic in formerly remote and seldom-visited places which are especially vulnerable to disturbance by visitors.
