In the spring of 2022, I joined Hållbarhetsklivet, West Sweden's collective initiative for a sustainable tourism industry. My goal is to limit the "ecological footprint" by offering an experience that is "around the corner" for many who live in Gothenburg and visitors to Gothenburg. It is easy to get here by public transportation, even by bike. The food I offer should as far as possible be locally produced and fair trade. The activities I offer do not require you to buy a lot of specially adapted equipment. The safety equipment I offer for kayaking is reused by all my clients. The hiking tours require nothing more than "clothes for the weather". Finally, in a simple but very concrete way, I want to contribute to nature conservation by always carrying a garbage bag on my tours to collect the trash we unfortunately find on the road.
I also think my tours will help you deepen your relationship with nature by getting to know it and how you are affected by it. I think there are many adults in today's urban environments who have a rather limited understanding of nature. If you develop a relationship with nature as an adult, you can then pass it on to your children. Research also shows the positive impact of spending time in nature on your health and happiness, and in this context, concepts such as forest bathing and mindfulness often come up. So, joining me on a guided nature tour, on foot or in a kayak, is nothing less than a "win-win situation"!
