Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Tourism has become a development catalyst for promoting social and economic welfare in many regions. The phenomenon of the sharing economy has radically changed the tourism and hospitality business even in peripheral tourism destinations. Finnish Lapland in the Arctic Circle is an example of a peripheral destination where the growth of tourism is significant, and the relative proportion of the sharing economy is remarkable. A case study presents the current situation of tourism and the sharing economy in Lapland and how it contributes to sustainable and holistic destination management.
