Experts discuss travel routes in the Arctic.

The online conference Arctic Tourism: New Challenges for Business discussed the unique development of Arctic Tourism.

There are 539 hotels and 126 tour providers in the entire Arctic Region. Before the pandemic, traveller flows had shown a positive growth dynamic for two years, and the earnings of tour providers increased accordingly. With the launch of the national revitalisation plan for the Arctic, Russia will trigger a new cycle of infrastructure improvement in the region, according to experts.

Russia’s revitalisation vision for the Arctic places a strong emphasis on tourism. The corresponding document was approved by the President of the Russian Federation on 5 March and provides for the development of the Arctic until 2035.
