What’s your company?
Hem62 was born out of our passion for Sweden. When we bought our house in Stöllet 10 years ago we decided to keep a blog so we could keep friends and family informed about our adventures. After a while, our blog got more and more followers and people started asking us general questions about Sweden. This led to a website with tourist information about Sweden and later our first travel guide Värmland, unspoiled and adventurous Sweden (also available in English). We enjoyed writing our first guide and decided to write another one: Winter in Värmland, a magical winter adventure in Sweden and Dalarna, around the Siljan (both in Dutch only).
Through our travel guides we came into contact with more and more entrepreneurs in Värmland and this eventually led to the plan to start a travel agency. Our travel agency Hem62 Travel has been in existence for two years now. You can contact us for accommodations and activities in Värmland. We work together with our partners, local experts, who know Värmland like no other and do everything they can to make sure you have a great holiday. On our website, you can compose your own holiday in Värmland. You fill your travel bag with what you like and send it to us, we’ll get to work for you and you’ll receive a no-obligation travel proposal. When our proposal is completely to your liking, the booking will be made and the anticipation can begin. A few weeks before departure you will receive a personalized travel guide with all your planned activities. This travel guide includes: directions to your accommodation, tips for hikes, swimming spots and practical information such as shop opening hours. However if you don’t want to arrange everything online or if you want to ask us a question, you can. We can regularly be found at events in the Netherlands and Belgium.
In the future, we want to permanently move to Sweden and further expand our activities in Värmland. This is why we have recently started Explore Värmland. Explore Värmland is a platform for entrepreneurs in Värmland. On this platform we present entrepreneurs who show their guests the best and most beautiful of Värmland. We work together with small-scale entrepreneurs we know personally. This is very important to us because we can tell an honest and enthusiastic story at events. We promote our partners through our website, social media, events and leaflets. We also support entrepreneurs in Sweden with the building of a website or with the design of printed advertising material.
And then there’s the question that everyone is asking: why Sweden?
We think our answer is very cliché, with first and foremost peace and quiet and space. But for us, Sweden is also “just home “. Here we do the things we like and do this together with very nice people. We could never have foreseen all this when we arrived in Stöllet almost 10 years ago. Our car was completely packed but we didn’t have a chair, table or lamp yet. Our children are still talking about the first evening when we all sat on an air mattress and had pizza and only had light from a clip-on spot that had been left behind by the previous residents.
Hem62 Travel organizes complete holidays to Sweden with crossing, accommodations and activities.
