Check dates, prices & availability
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.
PlanetAll 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 six 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.
Hiking puts little stress on the environment and allows you to appreciate the surroundings in an environmentally friendly way as you follow the established Sörmlandeden hiking trail through Sörmland.
We are a member of Naturturismföretagen (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.
This trip makes use of public transport where possible, for example, to access the hike to Tunaberg & Simonberget, and shares transfers with other group members where there is no public transport available. Electric cars are growing in popularity in Sweden and many taxi companies have invested in a fleet of electric cars. We always request the use of electric cars for private transfers.
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 carried out 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.
PeopleWe 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.
This trip includes membership of the Sörmlandsleden association, which is run by volunteers who prepare and maintain the trail and the association is entirely dependent on membership and contributions. We believe it is paramount that those who have developed and look after this trail are rewarded with this financial contribution (in the form of membership).
Encounters with the locals is a fundamental aspect of our trips, and we therefore make all efforts to use suppliers from the area where possible. With this in mind we prefer to use accommodation that is smaller and more personal which allows an insight into the local community, including personal B&Bs such as Tuna B&B set in the hamlet of Tuna Kyrka and the locally run Nävekvarn Pensionat. Our aim is always to promote and support the local community.
We also aim for included meals to be provided by local suppliers, most often from the local B&B where you stay.
Our trips are designed so that travellers pass by natural as well as cultural sites en route, including local folklore museums such as Tunaberg, 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.
Our trips would quite simply not be the same without the support of the local community.
