STF is an organization of committed people, who seek discoveries off the beaten track – in the deep forests and up the tall mountains. Also closer to home, through our network of local chapters. Our aim is for more people to experience adventures up and down the country.
As one of the country’s largest non-profit member organizations, we are deeply rooted in sustainable Swedish tourism. In part, our work is made possible by our 250 accommodations. And our work never ends. What is wonderful about Sweden is that there is always more to discover.
