Abstract [en]

Purpose: The aim of this paper is to investigate whether there are differences between big cities and small cities in adventure tourism. The cities that are studied are Stockholm and Visby.

Methodology: The study is based on a qualitative method. We have done interviews and observation. We also used books and internet when collecting information.        

Conclusions: The study has shown that differences exist between large and small cities. People seek out the opposite, whether you're from a big city or small town. Those who traveled to Stockholm made ​​the trip to experience and see the big city. Basis of choice has been the large selection, possibilities, events and various attractions. Respondents who chose to visit Visby made ​​their choice primarily because of the beach and the feeling of being overseas that one feels when one is in Visby. They have turned to calm, to relax and get away from their everyday lives.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka huruvida det finns skillnader i hur upplevelseturismen ser ut i stora och små städer. Städerna som vi valt att studera är Stockholm och Visby.

Uppsatsen är skriven utifrån en kvalitativ metod. Vi har använt oss av intervjuer och deltagande observationer. Också internet och böcker har varit primära informationskällor. Slutsats: Studien har visat att skillnader finns mellan stora och små städer. Människan söker sig till det motsatta, vare sig man är från en stor stad eller mindre stad. De som reste till Stockholm gjorde resan för att få uppleva och se storstaden. Grund för valet har varit det stora utbudet, möjligheterna, evenemang och olika attraktioner. Respondenterna som valt att besöka Visby gjorde sitt val främst på grund av stranden och utlandsskänslan som man känner när man är på Gotland. De har sökt sig till lugnet, för att få koppla av och komma bort från sin vardag.
