How to Spot Wildlife in Sweden
By Viator, April 2018
- Kayak or sail around the Stockholm Archipelago for the best chance of seeing seals and white-tailed eagles.
- Head to the taiga forests of Bergslagen near Skinnskatteberg in central Sweden (two hours northwest of Stockholm) to search for moose, roe deer, owls, and wolves.
- In winter, venture to the valleys of Lapland in Northern Sweden, where moose and reindeer are known to congregate.
- Consult a professional tracker; their intimate knowledge of animal habitats and behavior patterns ensure you are in the right place at the right time.
- Be quiet and still; loud noises usually spook wildlife.
- Listen carefully; you will usually hear a wild animal before you see it.
- Bring binoculars or a camera with a good zoom so you can see the animals clearly, even from afar.
- Lay low; animals are more likely to show themselves if they are unaware of your presence so avoid brightly colored clothing and consider using a hide.
