Stay longer

When planning a sustainable vacation, it is important to minimize how much we use environmentally impactful transportation. Therefore, it is recommended to stay longer in one place and explore the surroundings, instead of traveling between multiple locations. This reduces the number of transports required, and accommodation facilities can reduce the amount of cleaning and laundry after each guest change. A longer stay also allows you to immerse yourself in the local atmosphere.

Trosa has a wide range of activities, offering plenty of sustainable activities that will entertain you through your entire stay, no matter how long it is. You’ll find numerous tips for activities to suit all moods and weather conditions under the “See and Do” section.

off-season

There is a lot to experience in the nature, but even the outdoors can be crowded with visitors during the peak of the summer season. To counter overtourism and avoid putting excessive strain on the nature’s resources, it is an excellent idea to vacation during the off-season. Many popular attractions are just as enjoyable to visit during the off-season, because each season comes with its own charm.

Sustainable tourism also encompasses social and economic factors. By traveling during the off-season, you contribute to the sustainability of the local economy. With a more balanced influx of visitors, restaurants, shops, and other businesses find it easier to operate year-round. This creates more full-time jobs and employment opportunities.

You are always wellcome to visit Trosa and stay as long as you like. Hope we will see you!
