Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Sweden biking vacation, Stockholm archipelago

Environment

All our trips are about enjoying and experiencing the natural and cultural beauty of the region, in a respectful and considerate way. Our trips are only run with small groups, most often from two people to four people, to ensure that impact on the environment is a minimum at all times, and the most personal and rich experience can be had by all.

We are a member of the Svenska Ekoturismföreningen (Swedish Ecotourism Association) which works towards an improved tourism which protects and takes responsibility for our delicate natural and cultural environment. Our company beliefs reflect this vision.

As our trips are self-guided, we make extra efforts to provide travelers with as much information about the local area as possible, including information about bird, animal and plantlife as well as historical and cultural information. This ensures that, even without a guide, we can inform travelers about the region. With additional knowledge, travelers can go one step further to protecting the environment.

We take responsibility of ensuring that rubbish is handled accordingly. both in the countryside and in the office, with a developed sorting system. Use of paper is spared with all marketing made online to avoid the production of own brochures. Travelers are encouraged to recycle as much literature as possible that they are provided with at the start of the trip.

Community

We wholeheartedly support the local economy - our guests want to experience the genuine region in which they are traveling, and our aim is to let it be seen and enjoyed.

Encounters with the locals is a fundamental aspect of our trips, and we therefore make all efforts to use suppliers from the area. With this aim in mind, we ensure all meals are provided from local suppliers with a commitment to using local produce. Where meals are not provided, we encourage travelers to visit locally-owned restaurants, take extra day trips, etc.
We prefer to use accommodation that is smaller and more personal which allows an insight into the local community. Where possible, we use local suppliers (e.g. boat and canoe suppliers). Our aim is always to promote and support the local community.

Our trips are designed so that travelers pass by cultural and historical sites en route, and information is provided about these sites. Travelers are encouraged to visit or take guided tours, and all opening times of sites, shops, facilities are indicated to allow the traveler the opportunity to maximise their visit.

We have also supported the local community by providing translation services of local websites to help encourage tourism from abroad.

Our trips would quite simply not be the same without the support of the local community.

Bring clothing and preparation for all kinds of weather!

Benefited the people on the individual islands, such as Utö, Orna Kyrka etc. where cafes and shops were reliant on tourism. We reduced environmental

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


So many wonderful moments: Cycling through the beautiful Swedish countryside, fresh air, no cars; seeing red squirrels; exploring the delights of Stockholm; discovering a wishing tree on the island of Ornö; the delicious food; excellent breakfasts; the variety of accomodation; staying out in the countryside in a farmhouse by a lake and being offered impromptu use of the sauna as the evening becomes fresher, then watching a lone cloud in the distance beyond the lake as it glows intermittently from lightening striking within.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Do a little training beforehand. Wear cycling shorts and/ or take a gel seat!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We supported some small and local businesses. For example, staying in a remote B & B. Our luggage was transported on for us, so it was just one vehicle making a trip and our exploration of the area was on environmentally friendly bicycles. Many Swedish hotels are environmentally aware as they offer minimal bath and shower products and many do not provide bottled water as the tap water is excellent, thus minimising their impact on the environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Life enhancing. The operator provided comprehensive information and organised everything beautifully. This meant we were free to enjoy the cycling and discover the Swedish culture and sights. When I returned home I was still glowing from all the memories and sensations from the vacation experiences.
