Venture into the wild as we explore typical Swedish pine forests, open fields, and calm lakes. In a remarkable nature reserve, we focus on spotting moose, dear, wild boar, and other native animals to witness wildlife in their natural habitat.
On this wildlife safari, we have always seen at least 2 out of 3 wild mammals: moose, deer, and boar. Birds of prey such as buzzard, falcon and others can also be spotted. We may even encounter badgers, foxes, hares, and, if we’re lucky, a lynx.
We start by picking you up in the late afternoon in central Stockholm. We then drive you in a spacious minivan away from the busy city into the peaceful forest. Starting off the trip is a cozy campfire dinner in the forest. During the meal, one of our expert guides tells you all about the rich Swedish wildlife and nature.
After dinner, we take a short hike looking for animals, their signs, and their tracks. Using these natural clues, it’s possible to see moose even this early on our excursion.
Once we finish walking, we continue in our van in order to cover a wider area and improve our chances of animal sightings. Sunset is prime moose-time when we are most likely to see males with huge antlers or a mother with her calves. We search in a forest nature reserve, so each tour varies. Every turn through the reserve brings another view and another chance to spot furry inhabitants.
After an evening traveling through the reserve, we return back to our meeting point. You end the day with new knowledge of Swedish wildlife, a remarkable journey through the forests, and possibly a moose friend.

We were so happy with our hike. Ben, our guide, made it really special for us. He's very knowledgeable, he knew wild fruits and plants, mushrooms, and was as excited as we were with the hike! We hike on and off-trail, picked lots of berries on the way, went to a couple of lakes, had lunch around a campfire and had an amazing time. I recommend this to anyone keen on experiencing nature in Sweden.
