Kamchatka region is a magnet for travelers who are interested in ecological tourism. Problems of the region include inadequate tourist infrastructure, poor transport accessibility of the sights, low information support of the landmarks and low level of tourists' awareness of this tourist destination.
Kamchatka Government focuses its efforts on development of tourism infrastructure in the region and increase of tourist flow. With increasing number of tourists visiting natural attractions, man-made load on the nature of Kamchatka grows.
Each tourist area has a defined capacity in terms of tourist volume over a certain time period. It is also important to ensure tourism security and safety as most routes in Kamchatka pass through sparsely populated and uninhabited areas with poor mobile phone coverage. Technological solutions can help, for example, to calculate potential tourist flow, distribute anthropogenic load over time or control tourist adherence to safety rules.
