Stockholm hiking vacation

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

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 private groups to ensure that impact on the environment is minimal at all times.

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.

Hiking puts little stress on the environment and allows you to appreciate the surroundings in an environmentally friendly way as you follow established hiking trails through for example Tyresta National park. We always provide guests with information about the Swedish 'right to roam' in the nature, so that due care is taken when hiking through sensitive areas.

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. Look out for roaming red deer, fallow deer, red squirrels and moose, which can all be seen just on the edge of town. The archipelago island of Gällnö has a mixed flora and fauna including orchids and sea eagles.

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. Whether you are hiking in Tyresta National Park, on Gällnö island or along Lake Mälaren, we recommend a visit to the locally run cafes and businesses to help support the area as well as enjoy contact with the locals and sample local produce.

We prefer to use accommodation that is smaller and more personal which is why we have chosen the locally run Hellsten hotel chain. This is a a chain of four hotels in Stockholm all of which enjoy a personal atmosphere and excellent service, and a far cry from the business hotel environment.

We only run small group trips which means that we can offer our guests a more individual, personal experience that does not impact on the rural environments they visit.

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