Bibliographic description: Konyshev, E.V., Lutoshkina, A.K. Economic consequences of the COVID-19 impact on the tourism development in Arctic regions of Russia. Arktika: ekologiya i ekonomika. [Arctic: Ecology and Economy], 2021, vol. 11, no. 4, pp. 504-518. DOI: 10.25283/2223-4594-2021-4-504-518. (In Russian).


The authors assess the economic impact of the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on the components of tourism and recreation system in the Arctic regions of Russia. They propose the estimation method, which includes indicators of changes in the sale volume and structure of the tourism industry services, changes in the revenue volume and share of tour operators, changes in the monopolization level and the distribution structure of market shares of tour operators in the Arctic regions. The study results can be used to adjust policy and strategic documents for tourism development in the Arctic regions of Russia.
