Eco-tourism companies

Here is some information of use to businesses offering activities or other tourism services centred on experiences in nature.

Other people's land 

Seeking to operate on land owned by someone else? "Turism på annans mark” is a publication that describes how landowners and eco-tourism operators without land of their own can work together. It has been produced by the Federation of Swedish Farmers, the Swedish Nature & Ecotourism Association, Visit Dalarna and the Swedish Association of Landowners, and it also includes sample agreements. 

Download the publication "Turism på annans mark" on the website of the Swedish Nature & Ecotourism Association (in Swedish) 

Activities in nature 

If a company wants to carry out activities in nature, organisers must know the applicable rules as well as what obligations and responsibilities they and their companies have. Organisers can learn more from their county administrative boards and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
