Abstract [en]

The internationalization of second home tourism has been mentioned as a major reasonfor the renewed interest in the issue of second homes after a period of scientific disregard. Still, fewstudies have addressed the international flows of second home owners. However, cultural differencesas well as a recently limited relationship with the destination can imply that foreign second homeowners have a more consumptive approach to the destination. This paper addresses particularlyNorwegian second home owners in northern Bohusla¨n, a region in western Sweden, and aims atanalyzing whether foreign second home owners present a challenge for sustaining ruralcommunities. The analysis is based on the results of a mail survey and indicates that foreignsecond home owners are attracted by low price levels as well. This implies that macroeconomicchanges can quickly erode this attraction, making international second home tourism a lessreliable strategy for sustaining rural communities.
