Support STF during coronavirus crisis

Since 1885 we have inspired countless journeys and made it possible for more people to discover Sweden. Now STF are facing our biggest challenge to date. We are in an critical situation as we struggle to save our 135-year-old organization.

An important part of STF, and a key factor in enabling people to discover Sweden, is that we offer accommodation up and down the country. Our work is mainly financed through the income of these accommodations, as well as membership fees. Right now, the former is almost non-existent. The coronavirus outbreak presents a number of major challenges and very seriously impacts STF and our economy. We are currently forced to make many difficult decisions to save the organization. This is why we need you more than ever!
