Monitoring Outdoor Recreation in the Nordic and Baltic Countries

This is the final report of the project "Visitor Monitoring Methods in the Nordic and Baltic Countries". The goal of the project was to develop visitor monitoring methodologies for Nordic and Baltic land management agencies, the work of which is related to visitor management in protected and recreational areas. The report provides an overview of the visitor monitoring methods and guidelines currently available, including state-of-the-art reports and case studies from the Nordic and Baltic countries. The report concludes that there are certain common variables related to monitoring outdoor recreation that are important to all the Nordic and Baltic countries and that could be standardized. Therefore, the project group continues its work in order to produce recommendations for a common visitor monitoring methodology in protected and recreational areas in the Nordic and Baltic Countries. These recommendations will be published in the form of a Nordic-Baltic manual on visitor monitoring practices.

Hide / Show Abstract

The state of the art reports and case studies presented in chapter 4 and in the appendices indicate that visitor monitoring is considered of growing importance in the Nordic and Baltic countries. There has been quite a bit of monitoring going on, both at population level and on site, in some countries for several decades. Consequently, methodological development has also been proceeding for a long time.
