With the vision to make nature and sustainable travel more accessible, Oslo-based Campanyon has just closed €1.5 million – one year after its first round.
The funding is led by Schibsted Ventures with existing investors also participating.
The travel tech startup, founded only last year, made it onto our list of Oslo startups to watch this year for its innovative approach to sustainable travel. Campanyon provides a space where campers and hosts can create meaningful connections with each other, explore their surroundings – all while sharing and protecting the environment and nature around us.
The Campanyon platform enables campers and adventurers to explore and book a variety of experiences – from camping and glamping sites to hammocks, cabins and tents. Travellers and hosts are encouraged to interact before the trip, creating connections between like-minded people, and giving the platform a community vibe. Interactions between like-minded adventurers means that travellers can get the best insider tips and local knowledge, making their trip unforgettable.
As we enter into another phase of the pandemic, there’s no doubt the travel industry has been undergoing somewhat of a transformation (more on that is available over on FutureTravel).
More and more people are becoming aware of the importance of our natural environment and staycations, especially those that involve getting into nature, have become more popular. The sustainable tourism trend is here to stay and Campanyon is in a prime position to pioneer a new travel proposition across Europe and beyond.
The Campanyon team said: “It’s only the beginning of our journey, and we are very excited to participate in shaping the future of travel.”
Looking to the future, the young company want to continue offering local and sustainable tourism opportunities and grow the Campanyon community.
