The Russian Arctic is a unified physical and geographical system of land and sea areas of Northern Eurasia, within which unique natural and historical and cultural objects are concentrated. The system of specially protected natural areas of the Russian Arctic preserves vulnerable arctic, tundra landscapes under conditions of various anthropogenic activities. In the face of modern climate change, monitoring of the transformation of the Arctic landscapes in specially protected natural areas is important. The landscape map compiled as a result of our own field and office studies shows 26 natural complexes. The most interesting for ecological tourism is the north-western part of the island. .By the example of Vaygach Island, the natural and historical-cultural possibilities of organizing a protected area, including the solution of environmental problems, are considered.
