The Swedish Tourist Association (STF)

The Swedish Tourist Association (STF) is one of the largest volunteer organisations in Sweden and has since its establishment in 1885 been a pioneer in helping folk to discover Sweden. We want more people to have the opportunity to understand and share our joy of discovery, which we promote by guiding and inspiring small and large adventures. We want to nurture and develop our unique environments such that we can pass them on to the next generation. The association has over 228,000 members and around 250 accommodation facilities in Sweden, from lighthouses and mountain stations to ships and hotels.

Each year, thousands of activities and courses are arranged at our facilities and under the auspices of the approximately 65 district associations we have. STF publishes Turist, a magazine (in Swedish) for our members.
