Sweden Passion – Swede Stops
Free overnight stopovers for motorhome tourists in the Swedish countryside, in connection with local businesses activities (eg farm shops, producers, restaurants, artists, craftsmen and organizers of different activities in rural areas).
SWEDE STOPS’ aim is to invite motorhome tourists, Swedish and foreign, to the Swedish countryside, where local businesses provide free overnight stopovers.
In other countries there are, since several years, similar networks of hosts in the countrysides.
They are based on an idea by France Passion (1993) –

SWEDE STOPS follows the main concept of ““la formule invitations”, which means:
Stay on exclusive private grounds
Meet local producers and enjoy rural pubs
24 h free stopover with the national annual windscreen sticker
Buy fresh and tasty food on site”
