Bibliographic description: Moroshkina, M.V., Vasilieva, A.V., Kondratyeva, S.V. Methodological approach to the study of tourism systems in the Northern and Arctic regions on the Russian Federation (on the example of the European North). Arktika: ekologiya i ekonomika. [Arctic: Ecology and Economy], 2022, vol. 12, no. 3, pp. 376-386. DOI: 10.25283/2223-4594-2022-3-376-386. (In Russian).


The paper discloses the study aspects of tourism systems in the northern and Arctic regions according the proposed author’s approach. Via the proposed approach, the authors reveal a significant development of the tourism systems of the European North of the Russian Federation (except the Nenets Autonomous Area). Taking into account the vulnerability of natural ecosystems of the studied regions of the Russian Federation, the article shows the prospects for the tourism development based on the resources of specially protected natural areas as a compensating factor in socio-economic development. The authors formulate recommendations for the development of ecological tourism in specially protected natural areas, namely: to take into account the specifics associated with the conservation status; be guided not only by parameters related to recreational capacity and value, but also by infrastructure tourism provision, to introduce effective models of interaction between the administrations of protected areas and companies providing tourism services in the region and beyond; to intensify marketing programs in the field of promotion of ecological forms of tourism.

Finance info: The study was carried out within the framework of the state task of the KarRC RAS Comprehensive study and elaboration of management principles for sustainable development of Russias northern and borderland belts in the context of global challenges.
