Sweden’s Wildlife Packages
Moose, Beavers and Wolves are some of the most characteristic wild animals in Sweden. The Bergslagen forest, located just two hours out of Stockholm has proven to be one of the best regions in Sweden to experience them all. Have a look at our most popular wildlife watching packages with full focus on Moose, Beaver, Wolf and optional Brown Bear watching.
During the Summer season (April – October) we offer good chances to see Moose and Beaver and to hear wild Wolves howl in their natural habitat. Join our experienced guides for these rewarding wildlife adventures in the Bergslagen forest. Our excursions involve various walking, driving and boating excursions in combination with sitting in hides which means you will get to spend a lot of time out in nature. However, you will always have access to a room at one of our partner guesthouses where you can sleep comfortably between the guided excursions. The following packages are designed to make the most out of your wildlife watching holiday during the Summer season.
- Stay at a family run guesthouse with local food
- Big chance to see Moose and Beaver and to hear Wolves howl
- Learn more about Sweden’s wildlife from experienced guides
- Spend the night in a Wolf territory
- Slide show presentation with researcher at Grimsö Wildlife Research Station

Suitability: Recommended minimum age is 10 years for most tours and 15 years for the tour that includes the Wolf tour. Please note that the long sun hours during June and July means we have to stay out until late, often after midnight, but we often get the chance to sleep in the mornings. Participants should be able to walk in the forest without difficulties. The amount of walking is dependent on the current wildlife situation. Walking level is medium. We may walk up to 1 hour on gravel roads as well as in uneven terrain off trails, even in darkness at night. Walks include many stops along the way.
Group size: Maximum 8 participants per guide. With 2 guides there may be up to 16 participants.
Wildlife information: Please note that Wolves in Sweden are very shy and difficult to see in the wild. Our main focus is to listen for howls, to see prints, territorial markings, killed prey and to feel their presence. If the situation is promising, we will also try to see Wolves at some strategic location. Although we rarely see Wolves it does happen occasionally. Our guides work hard and spend a lot of time tracking in several Wolf territories to be able to locate the Wolves all year around.
