Yksityiskohdat

The purpose of this thesis is to improve understanding of nature-based and wilderness tourism experience in Iceland and analyse the conflicts that could occur between tourism and the power production industry in natural areas. The thesis introduces a methodological framework to evaluate the effect of proposed power plants on nature-based tourism which was developed in a project called Master plan for geothermal and hydropower development and was carried out for the Icelandic government. Mixed methods were used in the thesis with empirical case studies that combine questionnaire surveys, semi-structured interviews and diaries as well as a system approach, the Delphi method and the Analytic Hierarchy Process.
