About STF

STF – Opening the way to adventures in Sweden

At the Swedish Tourist Association, we want to get folk to discover Sweden. We want to nurture and develop our unique environment, and to guide and inspire folk to large and small adventures based on our 350 accommodation facilities. From lighthouse and mountain station to ship and hotel.

STF is one of the largest volunteer organisations in Sweden, with approximately 235,000 members. An association of committed people who seek discoveries off the beaten track, deeper into the forests, and higher up the mountain. Not least close to home, in our network of district associations. And our work never ends. Because what is wonderful about Sweden is that there is always more to discover.

STF has deep roots in Swedish tourism based on the natural world and cultural heritage. It is our objective to be a distinct voice in important environmental issues. We nurture the Swedish environment, and desire that it should be preserved for coming generations.
