  • participants' satisfaction with the experience (e.g., hiking in warm, sunny conditions vs. cold rain or extreme heat).

Any changes in the length and quality of nature-based tourism seasons induced by global climate change could have considerable implications for park visitation and visitor-related management issues. Furthermore, given the diverse natural landscapes among Canada's national and provincial parks, any changes in the natural characteristics of park environments could negatively affect tourism by reducing their perceived attractiveness among local, national and even international visitors
