Overview

Explore Sweden's forests and view the native wildlife on this 4-hour sunset safari. Departing from Stockholm with a local guide, travel by comfortable minivan from the city out into the more rural landscapes surrounding the Swedish capital. Delve into the dense forest to track wild boar, hares, deer and elk. Take a short forest hike and pause to check out some ancient Viking runes. Embarking on the safari at sunset ups the chances of coming upon these creatures, who are most active during the beginning and end of the day.
  • 4-hour evening minivan safari from central Stockholm
  • Explore the stunning, wildlife-rich forests and landscapes around Sweden’s capital
  • Watch for the elk, deer, wild boar, hares and colorful bird species that roam the area
  • Learn about Sweden’s native wild animals and natural habitats from your expert guide

Just before sunset, meet your nature guide in central Stockholm at Kungsbro strand 21. Climb into the comfortable minivan drive out of the city center to begin your safari.

The dense forests and lush meadows of Sweden's countryside are just a short drive from the capital. Enjoy the beautiful setting as you ride through landscapes dotted with red-roofed cottages and head deep into the forest. Wildlife, including birds, hares, elk, deer and wild boar are abundant here. Before setting out on your search for these creatures, enjoy a Midsummer meal at an outdoor camp as your guide gives a short intro to the area and its native flora and fauna. Keep a special lookout for elk, who are known to emerge during this twilight time for food and water.

Take a 15-minute hike through the tranquil forest with your guide. Stop to see some ancient Viking rune stones and hear about their history.
At the conclusion of your 4-hour safari experience, return to central Stockholm for drop-off.

The evening started with a drive to a pretty place for a typical Swedish meal. We had three types of pickled herring, potatoes, crackers with cheese, and a salad. So much food. We saw every kind of animal expected: hares, foxes, wild boar families, roe deer, a squirrel, and several moose. Our guide, Toya (I'm sorry that the name is probably not right), could not have been more engaging. Ten stars!

We were intrigued by the idea of getting into the Swedish countryside in hopes of seeing moose. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable .. unfortunately she could not produce a moose for us that night. Midsummer dinner authentic. Suggestion: even with small group of 5, a microphone in van needed

The guide was very nice and quite informative and the outdoor picnic was tasty but I do think this tour is massively overpriced for the content. There were 8 of us on the tour all paying around 114 per head presumeably - overheads for 1 guide, mini bus and inexpensive picnic content made it seem a bit of a rip off to be honest. Also I know the wildlife cannot be quaranteed but on a 4 hour tour we literally saw a couple of moose for 30 seconds so far away you wouldn't know what they were, then a few roe deer and one fox. We didn't do a 15 minute trek into the forest as advertised and nor did we visit the ancient runes, so all in all pretty underwhelmed and certainly felt we did not get our money's worth.

OK. Could have been better for the price if the wildlife expert had not been sick. The meal was good and a lot of fun. More information, a bit of a bush walk and explosion about plants and animals such as eating , breeding , berries edible in the forest etc. Sadly only deer around for our trip. No Moose .

Nice to get out of city and see the countryside. Saw wild blue berries and lingonberries, and a couple of Viking stone monuments. Midsummer picnic. Only one moose, but at least 15 deer.

Very nice trip to see the local animals. Tour provides a wonderful picnic dinner featuring Swedish favorites including Swedish fish. Our tour guide was terrific and personable. He made sure that we were comfortable and spoke effectively about the flora and fauna of the local area. He did a great job spotting animals for us too. The touring van was in top notch condition, it was just my wife and I and the guide/driver. We had 2 full days in Stockholm and wanted to see some of the area outside the city. this tour accomplished that and more.

A refreshing trip out of the city. Our guide met us promptly, and we loaded up and drove about 20 minutes into the countryside. Our first stop was for a delicious feast of Swedish specialties- and they even catered to those of us who were Gluten Free! Then we were all provided with binoculars and instructions on how to look for moose. We drove through lovely farm areas, looking in Rapeseed fields, and finally spotted a moose. We also saw Roe deer, hares, cranes, swans, and a hawk. Our guide was knowledgeable and had a love of the animals and the forests. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Sweden.

This tour was amazing!

We were very lucky to see 10 Moose even though it was getting pretty dark for the last 6. It was pretty amazing. The Swedish meal was great and my gluten free requirement was catered for with no problem. Only one criticism was that the bus windows were dirty and since you are looking for Moose in near darkness in the distance from inside a small bus/people mover this was surprising and a little disappointing. Otherwise a great tour and great value for money.

Fine tour and several sightings of moose, wild boar, roe deer, hare/rabbit. Knowledgeable guide who also was a careful, smooth driver, with an able assistant. Pleasant midsummer meal and good companion guests on the tour. Altogether an interesting, fine evening out, giving an indepth view of Swedish wildlife and their care for the countryside.
