Abstract [en]

Relatively little has been written on the geographical location of tourism since Walter Chistaller’s seminal work “Some considerations of tourism location in Europe: the peripheral regions‐underdeveloped countries‐recreation areas” in 1964. This neglect of location may come as surprise considering the great interest of communities in remote areas to develop tourism as response to decline in other industries. This paper focuses on geographical explanations of tourism success and failure. Not least inspired by the work of Jan Lundgren, the article claims that accessibility is a major factor for success that often is underrated in discourses of destination development. Moreover, other industrial development justifying the provision of accessibility entailed important steps for the development of northern tourism destinations. Hence, it is argued that extractive industries often considered a threat to nature-based tourism in the far North, create vital preconditions for the development of tourism. This is done by reviewing the literature on location and tourism and secondary data sources on tourism development in northern Sweden.
