Abstract [en]

The focus of this study is a comparison over time between two visitor surveys

(1980 and 2003) conducted in northern Sweden. The aim is to analyze possible changes and

similarities over time in what attracts hikers to visit protected areas and if the type of visitor

has changed. Since comparisons over time are rare in tourism and outdoor recreation

research, this paper contributes to valuable empirical insights. Long-term data on tourism

and recreation is essential to assess visitor experiences and visitor impacts on the resource,

and for nature conservation management. The results reveal several variables that have been

stable over time. However, many changes have also occurred. For the visitors, it has become

more important with adventure and perils, services, marked hiking trails and accessibility,

and the average age among the hikers has become higher and they have reduced their length

of stay. In the second study, the hikers also accepted infrastructure to a greater extent. The

paper discusses possible implications of the changes found.
