In connection with the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden next summer, four local tour operators and incoming agents have joined forces to offer round trips (pre/post tours and round trips for bus groups) in Scandinavia. The Scout camp, which will take place at Rinkaby airfield in Kristianstad in the south of Sweden, is expected to attract around 50,000 visitors from around the world. The last time this Scouting Olympics took place was in London four years ago.

“We of course want to show the very best our corner of the world has to offer,” says Catharina Johansson, one of the partners in Meet In Sweden AB – the name of the newly founded company, Meet In Sweden.

Regardless whether you want to experience the outdoors by canoeing, cycling and hiking or visit the exciting capital cities of Stockholm, Copenhagen or Oslo, we offer both ready- and tailor-made packages to suit. We will be able to offer simple accommodation and cheaper travel means as well as more comfortable first class hotels and exciting culinary discoveries for groups both large and small. Travel agents and Tour operators can find interesting ideas for their customers whatever their interest and target.

Rinkaby is located, for example, two hours from Copenhagen by car or train. From Stockholm, it takes one day direct or alternatively stop and enjoy the nature and exotic excursions of the counties located en route. Skåne is a wonderful example of this exotic Swedish nature with its deep forests, picturesque coastline and shimmering lakes. Charming villages and impressive castles are not to be missed. A cycling and canoeing trip will enable you to experience a genuine and unique Sweden.

Meet In Sweden have also developed a special hotel booking site for the Scout Jamboree, since demand is expected to exceed availability of beds in at least the Kristianstad and southern region. In this way, the visitor is given a better overview of what is available in different price classes and categories.

But you must hurry if you want to live close to the camp. The hotels are almost already full today.
