    A knowledge destination framework for tourism sustainability2013In: Tourism, ISSN 1332-7461, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 121-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on Grant's (1996) knowledge-based view of the fi rm, Jafari's (2001) knowledge-based platform ofthinking and Schianetz, Kavanagh and Lockington (2007a) Learning Tourism Destination, the KnowledgeDestination Framework (Höpken, Fuchs, Keil & Lexhagen, 2011) is introduced and a Web-based DestinationManagement Information system (DMIS) is presented. It is illustrated how knowledge creation,exchange and application processes can be improved by applying a Business Intelligence approach. By focusingon Online-Analytical Processing (OLAP), exemplarily for the Swedish tourism destination of Åre, it ishighlighted how DMIS can be used as a monitor for measuring the proportion of tourists with the smallestecological footprint (Dolnicar, Crouch & Long, 2008; Dolnicar & Leisch, 2008). After a discussion of studylimitations, future research steps are outlined. Th e paper concludes by providing some critical remarks on thepolitical economics of sustainability on a global scale and by outlining policy implications for the governanceof sustainability at the level of tourism destinations.

    Trails for Tourism and Outdoor Recreation: A Systematic Literature Review2017In: Tourism, ISSN 1332-7461, Vol. 65, no 4, p. 488-508Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Trails are important elements in the natural and cultural landscape, and many ancient pathways have developed into routes of great significance for recreation and tourism in contemporary societies. By conducting a systematic quantitative literature review, this paper report on the status of international trail research and analyzes some of the key content with focus on trails for tourism and outdoor recreation in non-urban settings. For this purpose, we reviewed 195 research papers published in peer-reviewed academic journals. Results show that research on trails for tourism and outdoor recreation is primarily from English-speaking Western countries. The most studied trail-based activity is hiking, but there has been an increase in the number of studies researching multiple activities. Results also show that international trail research to a large extent is based on the natural sciences, and focus on environmental and managerial aspects of trail use. This review identifies gaps in trail research, especially in a socio-cultural context on topics such as heritage and public health. Research on conflicts between different recreational trail-based activities is also relatively scarce, as well as studies concerning conflicts between trail-based recreation interests and other land-use interests. We also identify a need for an exploration of the trail concept, as research has not yet articulated a clear definition of what a trail is. The paper also includes analyses of changes in trail-related research over time.

    Travelling for nature?: On the paradox of environmental awareness and travel for nature experiences2014In: Tourism, ISSN 1332-7461, Journal Tourism, Vol. 62, no 1, p. 5-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change is widely regarded as the major environmental problem facing the world today. Due to this, transportation, including traveling for recreational purposes, is now being thoroughly examined. Still, and despite a growing awareness of the impact of traveling, the demand for nature based tourism holds its position in general and, paradoxically, also among environmentalists. To understand this paradox, a qualitative study was conducted of Nature and Youth Sweden, to explore an organization that combines a profound commitment to the environment with a great outdoor interest. Data were gathered through focus groups with district boards and by a content analysis of the organization 's magazine. Results show that recreational traveling of environmentalists may be explained by the practice of placing nature in remote and "pristine" areas. Preferences for places characterized by biodiversity, natural quiet, an absence of other people as well as human impact reflect a desire among environmentalists to distance themselves from contemporary urban society. This desire outweighs one of their most important environmental concerns: global warming. Even though the members of Nature and Youth Sweden reject traveling by air on environmental grounds, it is concluded that environmentalism appears to be a reason for traveling, rather than a barrier.

    Germans' tourist behaviour in Sweden2008In: Tourism, ISSN 1332-7461, Vol. 56, no 2, p. 143-158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism research has identified a number of factors that influence tourist behaviour, among them socio-demographic characteristics and the number of previous visits. This article argues that also tourists' spatial mobility, the time period within the holiday, the characteristics of the places visited, and the access to information act as important determinants for the level and choice of tourist activities. Focus in this analysis is lying on German car tourists in Sweden. For this study, a combination of methodologies is employed. This includes travel diaries on access to information as well as on type, place and length of activities, which were written by the respondents during their holiday in Sweden, and personal interviews, which were carried out after the respondents had returned home. Tourist behaviour was found to be similar to the respondents' behaviour at home, and place in combination with a limited time period and the absence of externally imposed routines was a major factor for this. In general, tourists took part in an activity for a relatively short period time before moving on. The level of spatial mobility was found to positively influence the level of tourist activity, and was to a great part responsible for the succession of activities. The time period within the holiday did not specifically influence activities, but so did access to tourist information, which affected the choice and duration of activities. Guidebooks were found to constitute the most important tourist information for the analysed tourist group.
