          Abstract

          Since Antarctic tourism has special features because of its peculiar characteristics, tourism activities need to be controlled. By using the qualitative method, this paper argues that although there are guidelines related to Antarctic Tourism, there are an increasing number of consultative parties who question whether the Antarctic environment can be adequately protected through these guidelines. The paper reveals the reasons underlying the poor governance of the guidelines and in view of the argument that Antarctic tourism regulation is still largely piecemeal, therefore, this paper concludes with suggestions to overcome the problem in order to ensure the sustainability of Antarctic tourism
