STF is one of the largest volunteer organisations in Sweden, with approximately 255,000 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.
