LOGO GLOBALRUNNERS

Welcome to our website! We, Anders and Ellika Livchitz, are thefounders behind Globalrunners 

Through our company, we are living our dream. We have worked as employees during decades with tour production, events and athletics. Since 2012, we do it exactly the way we think is best, in our own company. We focus on giving our guests the tools to achieve maximum benefit of each tour. Everyone should get unforgetable memories and we have carefully chosen the very best options. We want to put a golden flavor to your life. We also hope that you will find the atmosphere within the group inviting and stimulating. 

Globalrunners first tour 
Our first tour was to Marrakech in Marocco. The participants made their debut in an African halfmarathon. The group enjoyed the whole trip thoroughly, the Berber culture, a nice, flat track, the Atlas Mountains, the Atlantic ocean and a wonderful sun when it was at its darkest at home. We all returned very happy to Sweden, full of impressions from a different culture.

Win-win
The people who live in the countries we visit shall also benefit as much as possible from our tours. We use hotels, restaurants and activities that belong to the local people and we inform our guests very carefully how they shall adapt to foreign cultures. We offer train as an alternative to plane and we always avoid domestic flights to diminish our climate footprints. We have a zero tolerance to sexual abuse on children and prostitution and we only use accomodation with good working conditions for the employees.

Unforgetable tours for runners, crosscountryskiers, bikers and trekkers
We want our guests to enjoy difficult-to-beat, memorable and fantastic experiences. They also get a goal to strive for and keep up their physical training for, plus a better knowledge about the country they visit. We hope that our tours will be your best! 

Our most popular tour goes to Italy's famous cross-country race Marcialonga - The Long March. You are most welcome to join us in this Queen of Cross-Country Races through 13 villages. The tour is held the last week in January every year. 5 days/4 nights with plenty of time to explore cross country skiing as well as down hill skiing in the Alps.

Small groups with a hobby in common

We only allow a limited number on each tour. Our guests share a common interest which creates a nice and dynamic atmosphere. With a great passion for our destinations, we try to offer interesting and fun tours with many varied ingredients.

We visit traditional sights, but the main focus is put off the beaten track. We believe that you get your most valued impressions by meeting local people in the country you visit. There is a good balance between free time and activities.  

Globalrunners' guests

A wonderful mixture of people who enjoy being phycisally active. Several are recurrent guests. Some are couples, family or friends, others go alone when their partner or friend does not have the possibility to come along. Children are most welcome! We have travelled alot with our own children and know how fun, rewarding and important it is for children to get a perspecitve on their own lives.

What is special?

We believe our customers are loyal because we care. Our groups are usually small and we focus on each and everyone. People are different and we try to understand what everyone needs and perfers. You get to know each other quite well in the group. 

We were the first tour operator offering train instead of air plane to everone who wishes to travel in a more sustainable way. From February 2022, we only offer train when transportation to the destination is included. Taking the train gives you lots of nice experiences along the way to your desintation - it is fun! We also choose sustainable accomodation with good working conditions, owned and managed by local people to contribute to the destination financially. We feed all guests with extensive informaton about the local culture so they can adapt accordingly.

We recommend non-flour wax to our cross-country skiers and we skip meat at our "Celebration-Dinners" after races. On some tours, we connect with local running clubs and promote cultural exchange among runners. On race tours much more than just the event and accomodation is included.

Vision

We create inspiring and interesting tours for all our guests who enjoy being physically active. With an interest and hobby in common, a fruitful and dynamic atmosphere is established within the group. At the same time, the participants learn more about the foreign culture they are visiting. They get strong impressions from different parts of the world and a sound persective on their own lives in Sweden. Very important to us is also to benefit and respect our hosts in the country we visit.
