Who am I?
Fair Travel is owned by me, Jeppe Klockareson. My understanding and passion for responsible tourism comes from many years of travelling and a collective experience of operations, theory and development.
I was born and raised in Ystad, and have the Scanian blood running through my veins, although I’ve been based in Stockholm for 10 years now. I have worked for Basecamp Explorer and STA Travel in various roles, and currently sit on the board of the Swedish Ecotourism Society. In 2015 I was elected Chairman of the Steering Committee for Sustainable Tourism Management.
Of all the many experiences around the world that have most influenced me, my favourites would have to be: visiting the gorillas in Rwanda; swimming with whale sharks in Mozambique; the magnificent wildlife of the Galapagos; lurking over the edge of the magnificent Kaieteur Falls in Guyana; witnessing the mystique of Easter Island; experiencing in the hospitality of Dominica and the atmosphere in Old Havana. As a result of my many travels, my most in depth knowledge (beyond Scandinavia) covers South America, Africa, Asia and Australasia.
If I could sum my approach to travel and tourism up in one phrase, it would be this:
