Climate change is causing an increase in extreme weather and temperatures. As a result, some popular tourist destinations are seeing fewer visits as the weather in these regions becomes undesirable. However, in some places, the opposite effect is observed: a revival of tourism due to rising temperatures is seen, especially in places where the weather is usually cold.

Researchers predicted this outcome as early as 2006, noting that "climate change will shift tourism patterns towards higher altitudes and latitudes," and "tourism could double in colder countries and fall by 20 percent in warmer countries."

Scandinavia

While southern Europe, specifically the Mediterranean region, regularly attracts tourists, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland see a marked increase in visitors during the summer months. The northern location of these Scandinavian countries allows them to avoid the scorching temperatures experienced by some European countries.

"As travellers look for alternatives, they are discovering other countries and regions that offer great art, culture, food and wine, including the Scandinavian countries that also offer low temperatures," Helen Giontsis, president of Kensington Tours, told Travel Weekly.

Iceland

Similar to its eastern neighbors, Iceland is experiencing an increase in tourism. According to Iceland Review, the number of visitors to the country increased by 17% from June 2022 to June 2023.

"Tourism in Iceland has really grown exponentially over the past decade, and it's obviously not just the climate. It's also because most of our guests who come to us are visiting unspoiled nature, and obviously that creates pressure," said Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir.

Poland

Tourism is also expected to grow in Poland. Poland's Baltic coast has long been a popular summer destination for Poles and foreign tourists. The country's capital, Warsaw, was named the best destination in Europe in 2023 by European Best Destinations.

Canada

High temperatures could boost winter tourism in Canada as cold winters in the country will be a relative rarity for the world. In the coming years, people will need to move further and further north to experience cold weather.

"The dire circumstances of climate change could turn Canada - with its entrenched reputation as the Great White North - into a winter tourism destination," The Star notes.
