Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Back to nature! Färna Herrgård is an environmental friendly accommodation. Enjoy the food grown and produced by our local farmers and our own gardens. Immerse yourself in a hot bath under the bare sky after an excursion in the forest.

Encounters with wild animals is a way to connect people with nature, to educate people about the importance of biodiversity and a healthy ecosystem, and to inspire people to take action to save the wildlife and the environment. This is our contribution to make the world a little bit wilder.

In Sweden, as in most other parts of the World, forests are logged and replaced by plantations and wild animals are often just seen as problems and costs for farmers and landowners. What can we do to change this view?

It is quite simple…

When nature and wildlife provide income for local people and businesses, it is more likely preserved for the future.

We are proud to know that our small tour company is often used as a good example by others to prove that wild nature can be a substantial income for rural areas, and that wild animals are in fact worth more alive than dead.

Most politicians are already aware that tourism means substantial income. Now we just need to convince them that wild nature is Sweden’s main attraction and that is one more reason why we need to preserve more of it.

We received the Grand Travel Award as best ecotourism company in Sweden 2009. And then we received the Swedish Tourism Award as tourism company of the year in Sweden 2015. We are approved with the Swedish quality label for ecotourism, Natures Best since 2004.

• We respect wild animals by staying at respectful distance, never chase och deliberately disturb them
• We travel in small groups for less impact on the local environment
• We encourage our guests to travel by train

The Impacts of this Trip

We create outstanding wildlife holidays and tours, away from the typical tourist areas, for like-minded wildlife enthusiasts from all over the World. Our tours provide income for local people and businesses. And when nature and wildlife provide income for local people, it is more likely preserved for the future.

Our company is small, but we have an extensive network of friends that all contribute to our guest's experiences in various ways. In this way we can create multi-day all-inclusive nature holidays where we combine exciting activities with good food and comfortable accommodation.

Some guides are employed, but we also have a network of specialised wildlife guides spread out across Sweden. We have also teamed up with some of Sweden’s foremost wildlife researchers and experts. We work together with carefully selected hotels, guesthouses and restaurants.

• All inclusive tours contribute greatly to the local economy
• Local guides become ambassadors for nature and wildlife
• Local food and drinks contribute to the local community
• We contribute with data to the Scandinavian Wolf Project
• We are members of the local neighbourhood watch
• We grant Save the Forest Award each year to show respect and acknowledgment to young people who stand up for the biodiversity in Sweden’s wild and beautiful forests
