The questionnaire covered questions regarding the overall opinion of mandatory and optional payment. The questionnaire also involved questions regarding fees’ effect on the respondents’ experienced accessibility, the expectations they have as consequence to insertionsof fees and opinions of who should cover the cost that the maintenance requires. The study substantiated the perception that fees in connection to nature is a complex matter and the opinions regarding it differ. However, the survey demonstrated that a majority is positive regarding visitor-fees as long as they are well-motivated and the process is transparent. It is visible that the “Allemansrätt” is highly defended and even though individuals are aware of the problems of nature being strained by the increasing number of outdoor practitioners the introduction of fees must be understood and clear improvements must be visible. Individuals of the survey mediated that with introduction of fees several expectations follow. KEYWORDS: Fees. Outdoor recreation. Nature based tourism. Allemansrätten.
