Abstract
As a climate-dependent and nature based industry, tourism is closely linked to climate change. In Arctic and dub-Arctic regions like in northern Sweden, changing climate is synonym of both chalenges and opportunities for tourism professionals. This study in and around the Jokkmokk and Arjeplog settlements, where tourism professionals were interviewed, allow us to compare scholar projections and informants field experiences. This study also aim to determine how the tourism professionals community feel, face and adapt to climate change. In northern Sweden, climate change does not represent a fatality for tourism professionals. Challenges brought by changing climate seems surmontable, and new opportunities will appear during summers. However, climate change will bring close socio-cultural, economic and physical limits for societies in the two northernmost Swedish counties of Västerbotten and Norrbotten.
