Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Sweden self guided cycling holiday, Stockholm countryside

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 travellers 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 travellers about the region. With additional knowledge, travellers 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. Travellers 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 travelling, 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 travellers 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 travellers pass by cultural and historical sites en route, and information is provided about these sites. Travellers are encouraged to visit or take guided tours, and all opening times of sites, shops, facilities are indicated to allow the traveller 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.

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


Cycling around Stockholm & being able to explore so much in such a short time.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Just to be prepared with enough food & drink so you can stop anywhere on your day cycling to rest & eat.

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


I think holidays always benefit the local area as tourism is such an important part on any economy, with regards to environment then cycling holidays are definitely the best & respecting the area means you can explore & take in the environment without using cars etc.

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


Excellent - Carmen our tour arranger was really good and went out of her way to make sure our holiday was a wonderful experience. We also added a trip to Gotland on our own & it was great to have the flexibility to do this. Would definitely recommend the holiday to anyone.
