The paper examines the impact of climate change on conditions of summer and winter tourism in the Kysuce region. Based on the available regional climate change scenarios for Slovakia, model scenarios for Kysuce region are derived using four different models: the Canadian model CGCM 3.1 (SRES A2, B1), Dutch KNMI model and the German model of MPI (SRES A1B). Modified regional scenarios were used for the analysis of changes in conditions for summer tourism, summer hiking in mountain areas, winter ski tourism and conditions of new snow during the winter. The analysis suggests that in summer will gradually improve conditions for subsistence and physical activity, which may bring new challenges to the development of previously unusable summer tourist activities. In winter, the opposite will occur deterioration of conditions for skiing, particularly because of problems with the occurrence and duration of snow cover and the increased frequency of rainfall. This situation will require a certain change of strategy in ski resorts towards providing more comprehensive variant of winter tourism activities, more sophisticated artificial snow-making etc.. In the end, it made some framework adaptation measures in the field of tourism in the region Kysuce whose implementation could raise the total tourist potential of the region.
