The Murmansk region is characterised by endless wilderness areas, taiga, forests, countless rivers and lakes, and is also interesting for various types of tourism. More than 40 countries have stayed in the region's hotels in 2018, with most foreign visitors coming from Europe. Three districts of Karelia - Belomorsky, Kemsky and Louhsky - were successfully included in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation in 2017. The Belomorsky District has an exceptionally high tourism potential, which is currently under-demanded due to the lack of an underdeveloped tourism infrastructure and tourism personnel. The Kemsky district is famous for the objects of historical and cultural heritage. In the Kemi district there are few recreation facilities and hotels, which is explained by the fact that major tourist flows of guests pass through the city of Kemi. The Assumption Cathedral in Kemi, Kuzovetsky archipelago are in great demand. The area is famous for fishing, hunting and event elements. The Louhsky region is famous for wild recreation away from the hustle and bustle. In the region there are all conditions for the development of various kinds of ecological, natural, sports and adventure tourism. All regions have a sufficient number of attractions to attract tourists, unique natural phenomena and the potential for numerous types of tourism.
