Mountain and wildlife – evening tour
With its never ending mountain views this area is known for wild surroundings, friendly people and a great wildlife. Join us on this tour to our favourite mountain, a hidden gem outside the crowded tourist spots. The area is located in the south and less known part of the famous King`s trail.
With its peaceful, natural and genuinely Scandinavian atmosphere, this is the perfect place to spot wildlife or just enjoy the beautiful surrounding mountains. The chance of spotting moose, reindeer, capercaillie and ptarmigan are great in this particular area. This are a is also home to Sweden´s Big Five – Wolverine, Brown Bear, Wolf, Lynx and Golden Eagle. However, these animals are extremely shy and difficult to spot. We can´t give you any guarantees of seeing any animal at all, but we guarantee that we will give you the best of chances in doing so.
We hike uphill through the old spruce forests, passing the birches and get rewarded with great mountainview. During our hike we will scout for traces and share our knowledge about tracks and signs of wild animals that we may come across. After spotting for wildlife we take a rest together on cosy reindeer skins in front o f a warming fire. We enjoy Swedish fika with our special coffee ”kokkaffe” and traditional soft, sweet and spicy bread topped with local specialties. For those who don’t like coffee, we serve homemade herbal tea or a warm traditional juice made out of berries from the mountains. As the sun sets we head back to the cars.
