Tourism

The popularity of adventure tourism continues to increase, and every year the Arctic and Antarctic regions receive a significant and growing number of visitors. Operators strive to satisfy the appetite for the polar wilderness experience, leading to more activity in and close to sea ice. As numbers increase, the adventure tourism companies’ area of operation will spread to include new and more remote localities. Safety of navigation and environmental protection are priority goals for these operators.
