Abstract [en]

Remote areas of the Russian Arctic has being increasingly utilized as pleasure peripheries for the more affluent residents of the Russian urban areas during the past decade of the 2000s. Even previously closed military settlements along the coast of the Barents and Kara Seas are now being open to the tourists. The study is based on the qualitative analysis of the experiences of two tourist companies specializing on the development of the adventure tourism experiences. The participants shared their stories on how the representatives of local political elite are trying to oppose themselves to the changing realities of the tourism development. The arguments put forward by the local residents are, however, in favor of this development claiming that tourists’ visits represent a necessary addition to their ordinary life and as one of the forces for further revitalization of the service provision and facilities that would benefit local community at first place. These opposing views should be taken into account in order to develop a strategy allowing the consolidation of the stakeholders’ viewpoints. Another serious concern, is the absence of the functioning system for the community planning that is both socially and environmentally sensitive. The reliance on nature as the source for the adventure tourism development needs to be reconsidered and adjusted to the pressures of changing climate and realities of every-day life of the Arctic rural communities.
