Sports Travel - a growing trend
18/02/2014

It used to be just golf travel, but now running has become a new travelling trend for Swedes.

To travel and run marathons and other races in foreign countries is now very popular. Running has been hot for some time, both among Portuguese as well as Swedes. But for Swedes, the outdoor season is much shorter and this makes Portugal so popular, “Portugal is a favorite destination for many reasons”,  says Johanna Hoffman, VP at Springtime. “Some of them are of course the beaches, the weather and not being restricted to an all-inclusive.”

Springtime, a leading agency within running-travel in Sweden, has its training camp in Monte Gordo – Algarve, Portugal. “We started in 2005 with around 500 people coming to our camp in Algarve. This year 3200 people are already booked to come to Monte Gordo,” Johanna continues. “Springtime also offers 15 other sports activities at Monte Gordo and are considering, in the future,  to have all-year activities.”
