us for a genuine Scandinavian adventure and meet the
king of the forest, the mighty moose. Our experienced
guide Marcus Jonson will take you on an unforgettable
journey through the dense forests of Bergslagen, a region
known for its many little lakes, evergreen woods and
is the region where you are most likely to encounter
wild moose in its natural habitat. During the tour you
will get the chance to visit a moose own home ground,
a perfect environment to learn more about moose and
the other inhabitants of the forest in a practical way.
Marcus shares his knowledge of moose tracking and we
search for hoof prints, fresh droppings and bite marks.
He also shows different ways of communicating with moose,
of which some have been used by hunters in the region
for thousands of years.
the night falls the forest is brought to life and moose
awake from their daytime slumber to feed. This means
prime time for moose watching in the glades and meadows.
After years of experience in the field Marcus knows
the animals´ natural movements in the surrounding terrain.
He leads you to walk the most visited animal paths to
get to the nightly feeding grounds. Suddenly there is
a crack! Was that a moose..? The hike continues through
the woods where dark shadows reaches for us and creatures
hide just an armlength away. And suddenly, a huge silhouette
appears in the glade... it´s the king of the forest!
base camp, Kolarbyn, is a sweet collection of genuine
forest huts beautifully located by the shore of lake
Skarsjon. Kolarbyn is Swedens most primitive hostel
where you leave the modern world and comforts behind
and live in harmony with nature for a while. We cut
our own fire wood for the evening´s bonfire and prepare
a wilderness dinner together in the open. The ingredients
for the dinner is inspired by the moose´s own foods,
with many of the ingredients collected from the forest.
We also blend our own lingonberry drink with water from
the forest well.
a full evening in the open and a late night sharing
stories by the fire place we deserve a good nights sleep.
We accommodate in the huts just like forest workers
have in Bergslagen for centuries. In the morning we
are treated with a steady breakfast and singing birds.
Feel free to have a refreshing plunge in the lake before
we head back to civilization enriched by our new experiences.
