Enjoy the Swedish outdoors - together with us!
Sweden is an outdoor paradise. Do you want to share your passion for the open sky, the lush forest, the mountain top view, the smell of the sea? Look no further!
Friluftsfrämjandet (rough translation: Outdoor Association) is a Swedish non-governmental organization, actively promoting an outdoor lifestyle since 1892. And we just keep going.
Our website may be in Swedish language primarily, but we welcome everyone and all languages to join us outdoors!
The core and foundation of Friluftsfrämjandet is our local clubs (lokalavdelning) and their certified and experienced voluntary guides who arrange a wide array of outdoor activities for their local community. Many activities are open to the public, membership will often be required for advanced or recurring activities. We have local clubs in every corner of Sweden.
The purpose of Friluftsfrämjandet is to further happiness and well-being in society. We offer outdoor adventures for all ages, from 0 to 100 and beyond. Competition is not part of our concept, we arrange activities to win great experiences, together. We hike, bike, walk, climb, paddle, ski and skate together. We train the best outdoor guides and instructors in Sweden. And we have fun together!
Many Swedes know about Friluftsfrämjandet from their childhood days. Our popular character Skogsmulle has taught generations of kids about the wonders of nature. We are also the leading ski school in Sweden.
We safeguard the right of public access to nature in Sweden, for all generations to come.
Our pioneering approach to outdoor pedagogy is acknowledged internationally. More than 200 Swedish pre-schools follow our concept "I Ur Och Skur" (rough translation: come rain or shine).
