About The Stockholm Wildlife Safari:

Stockholm is a capital so intertwined with its natural surroundings that mother nature in all her glory lies just a short bus journey from the city centre. This wildlife safari tour from Stockholm Adventures departs at sunset during the summer months and spirits its visitors away to a fauna rich wonderland of spruce, birch and pine.

The light hours will give you chance to see the majestic elk, wild boars and even do a bit of bird watching. As things get darker the life of the forest continues to flourish as creatures of the night make themselves heard, and occasionally seen. In addition to wildlife spotting from the minivan there will a bit of hiking on the nature trails, and besides the forest's animal inhabitants you'll discover ancient Viking ruins and rune stones.

Led by a professional English-speaking guide, the safari vans depart from outside the Stockholm Adventures Office at Kungsbro Strand 21. Departure times vary depending on when the sun begins to set (exact hours detailed below). When you meet up with the minivan your guide will provide a detailed itinerary of the locations to be visited and the wildlife to be seen. Enroute you will also be offered some light refreshments.

The safari also includes a traditional Swedish Midsummer meal, which you'll enjoy as the sun sets amid the great outdoors. Dinner consists of herring, boiled baby potatoes, meatballs, sausages, boiled eggs with Kalles Kaviar and crunchy bread with Västerbotten Cheese. As a simple yet delicious dessert you'll be treated to a bowl of fresh berries. Lingonberry and Elderflower soft drinks are the safaris' beverage of choice.
