In Stockholm, as is always the case in Sweden, nature is never far away. Just beyond the city limits are extensive lush forests and plenty of farming and agricultural land that are inhabited by a vast array of wildlife. Here, Moose, Deer, Foxes, Hares and Wild Boar roam undisturbed. Our Wildlife Safari runs during dusk, which is an optimal time to go in search of animals, and in particular, the “Kings of the Forest” (Moose) who usually roam at sundown to graze and search for water.
Your guide will welcome you onboard our small and comfortable minivan before heading out of the city and into one of Stockholm’s most wildlife-rich areas. Once out in nature and before starting the safari proper, get to know your safari companions and enjoy a Traditional Swedish Midsummer Meal at an outdoor camp. Your knowledgeable guide will take this time to explain more about the habitat surrounding you, and the animals that inhabit it. You will then navigate through rural landscapes characterised by traditional red cottages, classic manor houses, majestic forests and historical rune stones from the Viking age, searching for wildlife. We do so by van so as to cover a greater distance and increase your chances of spotting wildlife, we usually see at least 3 out of 5 of the animals mentioned, if not all 5! Once the sun has set you will return to the city.
You will also take a short walk through the forest before enjoying a Swedish Midsummer Meal at an outdoor camp amongst the nature.“Thank you for a wonderful evening and sharing your beautiful country with us!!!”
