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!
Spend an evening in Stockholm’s beautiful forest where you’ll have the chance to meet the “other” locals – our resident wildlife!  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” who usually roam at sundown to graze and search for water. Your guide will welcome you onboard our small and comfortable minivan before heading off on Safari to one of Stockholm’s most wildlife-rich areas.  Before starting the safari, enjoy a Traditional Swedish Midsummer Meal at an outdoor camp as your guide explains 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 and once the sun has set you will return to the city.Our Traditional Swedish Midsummer Meal will consist of 3 different herrings, freshly boiled potatoes, meatballs, sausages, boiled eggs with Kalles Kaviar and hard crispy bread with Västerbotten Cheese.  We will enjoy fresh berries for dessert and we will have Lingonberry and Elderflower soft drinks.
