What You Can Expect

Sunset Wildlife Safari from Stockholm

Seek out elk and boar on your evening wildlife safari from Stockholm

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 traditional Swedish 'fika', or coffee break, 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.

It's was the epic tour. We saw every thing: Moose, Rain dears, Wild pigs and even a small little Bamby.

My advice, get a good Camara with zoom and have your allergy bills ready since :)

We were lucky and saw a good bit of wildlife on our tour. Our guide, Hanna, was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and and the animals that we saw. It was surprising how much wildlife is close to the city of Stockholm.

We had a great time on the tour. We stopped for Fika coffee and sweets at a small picnic area. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and did her best to make sure we saw animals. Highlight of the trip was seeing a moose and being able to get out and get some photos of it in the field. Great experience!

I enjoyed it. Unfortunately it was difficult to take good pictures with a normal camera since most of the animals came out after twilight. We did see wildlife though.


3 star rating: Worth doing August 2014

Disappointed in the limited wildlife, which I know you can't control or guarantee. Would start a half hour earlier at 8:00 instead of 8:30. By the last hour or so of the tour it was not light enough to be worth being out there. Guide brough coffee and snacks, which was a very nice touch. But the snacks were the huge muffins like we have in the US. I wanted some authentic Swedish pastries and/or cookies, not US stuff!

This is a good tour if you want to see everything in a day.. if not I find this tour abit too rush.. There was no time for photographs at all.. they just go thru every site in a flash and explain to you as you walk through.. so basically if you want to take some photos for yourselves, it would be difficult. Good for those who only want to see and hear :)

Trip was focused on seeing target megafauna - in that respect it was very successful. Elk - about ten, some within 100 meters. Feral pigs - a mom and 3 young quite close, plus others. A fox. Various roe deer, a life species for us.
The first stop muffins were a nice touch, but having only coffee w at least 3 tea drinkers out of 7 participants was not.
The small group size (7) was ideal - the minivan w tinted windows made it difficult to see - this was, after all, a tour from 8:30 pm to midnight.
The tour guide was sweet, and knew where to find the animals - but she really didn't know all that much about them or their habitat/characteristics/etc. e.g., are these elk same species as those found in North America?
All in all, it was pleasant, and I expect those interested primarily in seeing the afore-mentioned animals would rate it higher. We're spoiled from many tours led by professional naturalists, so read this review w that caveat.
