The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, it wants to elaborate on the relationship between tourist generating areas and destinations per se, the principal objective being to make us better grasp the consequences for a tourist destination inherent in its relative positioning within the geographic confines of the travel hierarchy at large. Second, having identified the various types of destinations (through this spatial hierarchal schema), we will look at a case study — the tourist frontier of New Quebec — a wilderness destination environment with the purpose of arriving at a more accurate account of how such a destination has developed, how its present tourist services function, and how they link up with the region. More particularly, we want to look into the very much debated relationship commercial tourist operations — regional resource utilization — economic linkages between a few isolated, small settlements in an otherwise practically uninhabited and fairly inhospitable tourist region.
