Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses how urbanisation in the north is affecting the prospects for tourism development in rural hinterland destinations. Using examples from northern Sweden, Australia and Iceland, this chapter identifies how destination hierarchies may change as a result of urban growth in the north. While northern cities function as 'gateways' to the hinterland, they may also emerge as competitors to rural destinations, limiting regional visitor dispersal to day excursions or 'crowding out' tourists from rural areas. The cases finally emphasise the importance of northern cities as generating markets for hinterland destinations. This relationship may offer more stable development opportunities in the longer term, thus requiring more attention in northern tourism planning.
