As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe work with local guides and locally owned accommodations and restaurants. This creates jobs in rural areas and it also provides our guests with a much more authentic experience. We ask restaurants to use locally produced ingredients, for example smoked wild boar or free grazing lambs along with pickled chanterelles or sweetened lingonberries. Beer comes from local breweries.
We educate our local guides to understand the various forms of interaction between humans and wildlife. There are many conflicts that must be solved and it is important to understand the various aspects and to get the bigger picture in order to find new solutions.
WE REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE
We have applied a strict policy to reduce, reuse and recycle whenever possible, for example:
We recycle all of our waste. We separate all plastic, paper, metal, electronics and batteries and take it to the communal recycling stations.
We work actively to reduce our driving distances by staying at local guesthouses close to the points of interest.
We inform and encourage our guests to choose public transport or our collective transfer services whenever possible.
Our boats are run on electric motors and the batteries are recharged on clean hydro-power.
PeopleWe believe that nature based tourism is a key factor to save nature. Therefore we would like to see many more initiatives and businesses operating in this sector. We are happy each time WildSweden is used as a leading example by the tourism industry.
To promote the development of more nature based tourism we are actively sharing our experiences with other business through consulting, presentations and workshops. During the last 15 years we have been to more than 100 locations, now giving about 40 workshops each year.
Our development model “Ekoturism i praktiken” was awarded Swedish Rural Development Project of the year in 2010.The Save the Forest Award is granted by WildSweden each year since 2017. With this award we aim to show respect and acknowledgment to young people who stand up for the biodiversity in Sweden’s wild and beautiful forests.
We are proud members of the European Rewilding Network, an initiative made possible by Rewilding Europe. The idea is to bring rewilding initiatives closer together, empowering eachother with information and tools to be more successful in their rewilding endeavours.
Rewilding is a progressive approach to conservation. It’s about letting nature take care of itself, enabling natural processes to shape land and sea, repair damaged ecosystems and restore degraded landscapes. Through rewilding, wildlife’s natural rhythms create wilder, more biodiverse habitats.
