Tour description provided by Viator
Discover Sweden’s rich wildlife and forests on this 4-hour sunset safari from Stockholm! Travel by air-conditioned minivan through the rural landscapes around the city and drive into dense forests in search of everything from elks, deer, wild boar and hares to a fascinating array of birdlife. Exploring at sunset heightens the chances of spotting elk in particular, as the animals emerge to feed and find water. Along the way, stop to view some Viking rune stones and enjoy a short forest hike in a bid to observe animals close up!
Meet your expert guide at Sergels Torg in central Stockholm just before sunset. Then, hop aboard your air-conditioned minivan and travel out of the city for your safari.
Just a short distance from Stockholm lies wonderful countryside with untouched meadows and dense forests inhabited by a rich array of animals and birdlife. Here, elk, deer, wild boar, hare and colorful birds roam undisturbed, all just a whisper from Stockholm’s city limits!
Before taking your safari proper, enjoy a traditional Swedish fika– a break for coffee and snacks – on board as your guide explains more about your destination and the animals you might see.
Then, enjoy the beautiful setting as you ride through landscapes dotted with red-roofed cottages and mansion houses, and head deep into the wildlife-rich forests. Watch for elk, deer, boar and the other animals hiding in the greenery. Look out especially for elk, known as the 'kings of the forest,' as these magnificent creatures often emerge at dusk to graze and search for water.
After a while, leave your minivan for a 15-minute hike. Led by your guide who knows the forests well, wander through the trees to seek out and watch more wildlife and birds in their natural habitat.
During your safari, stop to see some intriguing Viking rune stones. Listen as your guide tells you more about the ancient stones and Sweden’s ancient Viking past.
Your safari experience finishes with a drop-off in at Brunkebergs Torg in central Stockholm.
