Abstract [en]

This chapter introduces the SAINT project and the slow adventure concept. The core pillars of the ‘slow adventure’ brand include elements such as human-powered slow journeys, inspiring connectedness with nature, wildlife watching opportunities, nature interpretation, local, wild or slow food as well as the honing of outdoor skills. These core pillars (or themes) are highly relevant to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) involved in the SAINT project and constitute the essence of ‘slow adventure’ as a product concept. Typical nature-based activities available across the project area include expeditions into nature, overnight stays combined with nature experiences, wildlife viewing, hiking, recreational kayaking, canoeing and rowing, outdoor photography, as well as slow cooking and foraging. Most importantly, the ‘slow adventure’ product concept shapes the marketing message of the transnational cluster and brand, which companies can use to develop their product and reach the market. The chapter concludes by discussing the implications of these marketing and cluster activities within the Nordic tourism context.

Abstract [sv]

Rapporten redovisar en nationell enkätundersökning över svenskarnas friluftslivår 2018. Friluftsliv i olika former är en populär fritidssysselsättningbland svenskarna, vilken kan beskrivas som ”vistelse utomhus i natur- ellerkulturlandskapet för välbefinnande och naturupplevelser utan krav på tävling”.Målet för den av riksdagen antagna friluftspolitiken är att stödja människorsmöjligheter att vistas ute i naturen och utöva friluftsliv där allemansrätten ären grund för friluftslivet. Åtta av Sveriges 16 miljömål innehåller också preciseringarsom berör friluftsliv. Dagens friluftsliv har dessutom nära kopplingartill en växande naturturism. Syftet med undersökningen är att ge ett bra underlag för uppföljningar avfriluftsmålen och friluftslivet i miljömålen. Detta sker genom att dels redovisastatus för friluftslivet i Sverige år 2018, dels genom att visa på förändringarsedan år 2007. Ytterligare ett viktigt syfte är att erhålla data över friluftslivbåde nationellt och i respektive län, för att på så sätt få ett underlag till analyserav friluftslivet på olika geografiska nivåer. Undersökningen genomfördes i form av en postal enkätundersökningriktad till personer bosatta i Sverige i åldern 16 år och äldre under periodenseptember – november 2018. Mittuniversitetet utformade frågorna i samrådmed Naturvårdsverket och i dialog med andra myndigheter som ingår i nätverketför friluftsliv. Datainsamlingen genomfördes av Statistiska centralbyrån(SCB) och rapporten är framtagen av Mittuniversitetet på uppdragav Naturvårdsverket.

Abstract [en]

This chapter aims is to review trends in some of the main winter recreation activities in the Swedish mountains in order to discuss associated challenges and opportunities through the lens of such mega trends. To do so, it takes advantage of previous studies of mountain recreation in Sweden and analyses participation trends with a special focus on downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

Abstract [en]

This study contributes to the development of knowledge on transferring the concept of customer-based brand equity to a tourism destination context. Keller’s (2009) brand equity pyramid is utilized as the comparison framework to reveal similarities but also overlaps, differences and gaps on both the conceptual and measurement level of existing brand equity models for destinations. Particularly, the inner core of the model depicts the complex mechanisms of how destination resources transform into benefits for tourists overlooked by prior research. This study proposes a customer-based brand equity model for destinations, which consists of five dependent constructs, including awareness, loyalty, and three destination brand promise constructs constituting the inner core of the model, namely, destination resources, value-in-use and value-for-money. The model was repeatedly tested for the leading Swedish mountain destination Åre, by using a linear structural equation modelling approach. Findings confirm the path structure of the proposed model.

Abstract [en]

The present study contributes to the discussion on transferring the concept of customer-based brand equity (CBBE) to a tourism destination context. The core component of the proposed CBBE model for tourism destinations (CBDBE) considers customers’ evaluation of the destination promise in terms of the transformation of destination resources into value-in-use for tourists. The introduced CBDBE model consists of six interdependent constructs, including awareness, tourists’ perception of functional, tangible and social destination resources, value-in-use disclosing the purpose and benefits of consumption, value-for-money, satisfaction and loyalty. The model was tested for the leading Swedish mountain destination Åre for the summer season by using customer-based survey data and a linear structural equation modelling (SEM) approach. Findings confirm the hypothesized relationships and the hierarchical structure of the proposed model. Managerial implications are discussed and the agenda for future CBDBE research is outlined.
