Things to do

Wildlife in Sweden

Join an animal spotting trip to see moose, bears, wolves, lynx and beaver in their natural habitat.

Moose

Moose can be found all over Sweden but are difficult to spot. The best chance of seeing one of these magnificent beasts is on moose spotting tour with an expert guide. What's the difference between an elk and a moose? Find out at Wild Sweden 

Wolves

See wolves, hear them howl. Tour operator Wild Sweden's trip Wolf tracking in Winter was selected as one of 50 tours of a lifetime by National Geographic 2015! 

Bears 

For bears you have to head north to the provinces of Dalarna, Gävleborg and Jämtland, which have the highest bear population density in the country. Bears are shy, peaceful animals and you really do want a professional guide with you if you are going to spot one.
