|"Tourism in Antarctica"
A Multidisciplinary View of New Activities Carried Out on the
Tourism in Antarctica has rapidly increased in recent decades. In
terms of technical practice and visitor guidance, the management
of the tour operators is determining whether tourism has a negative
or positive impact on the environment.
This book aims to offer new elements for the debate, how co-exis-
tence of tourism and environmental protection could best be
guaranteed by shedding light on the latest trends and the modus
operandi of all parts involved. While some chapters deal with the
development of polar tourism in numbers, forms and activities,
others will focus on the apparent expansion of new activities
carried out in Antarctica and the focus amongst Treaty Parties on
the perceived challenges posed by such adventure tourism.
