Wildlife holidays in Sweden

Tell me about Sweden …

Sweden is a Nordic country in Scandinavia. Stockholm is its capital and largest city. Sweden became a member of the European Union in 1995 and it is the third largest country in terms of area in the EU. It has a low population density – 21 inhabitants per square kilometere, and about 85% of the population lives in urban areas.

Famous for its Viking past, today the Kingdom of Sweden is a highly developed democracy and a peace loving nation.

Sweden has a long coastline to the east, while to the west is the long Skanderna mountain chain. 15% of Sweden lies north of the Arctic Circle and about 65% of the country is covered in forest. Gotland and Oland are its largest islands, and Vanern and Vattern are its largest lakes. Most of Sweden has a temperate climate.

Our Sweden specialist recommends...

"Sweden in Autumn is a great time to go in search of the migrating Common Cranes, geese, Bluethroats and other birds. We also look for mammals, dragonflies, butterflies and moths on this all round wildlife holiday."

We had a most fantastic time with our hosts, they did so much for us to make our time with them perfect. Every day was sunny and warm with wonderful views to look at. The meals served were incredible and varied, and they couldnt do enough to make our stay a memorable one. To see a bear was the icing on the cake. I know all of us enjoyed every minute of the four days. Thank you Naturetrek as always for a superb holiday, looking forward to the next time!

The venue is one of the best I have visited. The hosts soon became like friends to us all. The hospitality was probably the best I have encountered! The trips into the forest and bear hide were made very interesting and exciting. Actually being able to watch these fine creatures in their environment was thrilling! I cannot praise the quality of this trip higher ... it is at the top as far as I am concerned. The food was better than I would expect at a top restaurant. Thank you for a great life experience!
