Watch and photograph wild brown bears from our safe wooden hides.

We have a very high success rate and you often see them up close, between 15-75 meters. Our guides work hard to give you the very best chances to see bears in Sweden.

  • High success rate to see wild Brown Bears up close (80-90% during the last few years)
  • Stay the night in a safe and comfortable wooden hide with chairs, beds and bathroom
  • Excellent photo opportunities, the hides are designed for photography
  • Learn more about the Brown Bear from our experienced guides
  • Local guides and small groups for a more genuine experience

 

We have hides in two different locations

You can read more about the hides at the links below.

The success rate has been equally high in both hides during the last few years. So, which one should you choose? I will try to explain the difference…

The hide in Bollnäs is large and has room for 8 persons. The location is about 3 hours from Stockholm. You need a car to get here since no transfers are available. The hide is tailor made for bear photography and our guide is an experienced bear photographer. An important aspect with this hide is that the background setting is beautiful and well preserved. Our guide has put a lot of thought into keeping the area wild and tidy, which will make your photos more authentic. The hide is located in middle of wilderness and in one of the breeding areas for bears in Sweden.

The hide in Sandviken is smaller and has room for 4 persons. The location is 2,5 hours from Stockholm, but you need a car to get to the meeting point. No transfers are available. The hide is an old forest cabin that is refurbished and adapted for bear photography. It has small windows and camera slots in three directions. There is enough room to move around which makes it more child friendly. There are even some viewing windows close to the floor. Note that you never share with other guests who are there with children. Your guide is an experienced wildlife photographer.
