We want to make Sweden a wilder place

– Hello Marcus, what is WildSweden all about, really?

– Hello, our mission is to make Sweden a wilder place!

– Okay, but how?

– We create some amazing wildlife experiences and tours, away from the typical tourist areas. Nature loving people come from all over the World to join us for some days in the wild.

– Okay, but how does that make Sweden a wilder place?

– Our tours generate important income to local guides, restaurant staff and accommodation owners. And when wild nature provides an income, it is more likely saved and developed. In the long run Sweden becomes a wilder place!
