As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetKorså Forest Camp is an environmentally friendly accommodation. The tents are heated by local fire wood and we use candles and LED-lights with rechargeable batteries. We have a clear water lake with a sauna instead of showers and outdoor compost toilets that uses no water or chemicals. We have applied a strict policy to reduce, reuse and recycle whenever possible. We have chosen natural materials that can be recycled whenever we can.
Our aim is to offer genuine nature experiences that support wildlife conservation and creates economic opportunities for the local society. We are proud to say that we are often used as a good example by others to prove that wild nature can be a substantial income for rural areas, and that the forest and all its inhabitants are worth more alive than dead.
For this we are an awarded ecotourism company, we won the Grand Travel Award for best ecotourism in Sweden 2009, and we are approved with the Swedish quality label for ecotourism, Natures Best since 2004.
PeopleWe work with local guides only, that is guides that live within walking distance or maximum 30 minutes drive from the camp. Korså Forest Camp is run in cooperation with our good friends at Korså herrgård, a small, family run guesthouse in the nearby Korså village. Our aim is to create local job opportunities in the village and a local experience for our guests.
The food is often locally produced, often with sustainable wild hunted meat like wild boar and moose along with wild chanterelles and sweetened lingonberries. Blueberries can be foraged in the forest along the walks and we often bring hot drinks out into the wild.
Our guides like to explain the ecosystem and the interaction between humans and wildlife. There are many conflicts that needs to be solved, and it is important to understand the details to get a bigger picture. We hope that each one of our guests returns home with more knowledge and greater respect for our wild animals.
