Responsible tourism: Aurora Borealis, wildlife and dogsledding in Swedish Lapland
We have now worked for more than 10 years to take people from all over the World to see some of Swedens most remarkable wild animals such as Moose, Wolves, Beavers, Bears and spectacular birds like Owls and Capercaillies. Our aim is to offer genuine nature experiences that support wildlife conservation and create economic opportunities for the local society. We are so proud to say that our tours are often used as a good example by others to prove that wild animals can be a substantial income for rural areas, and that these animals are worth more alive than dead.
Our guides like to explain the ecosystem and the interaction between humans and wildlife. There are many conflicts that needs to be solved, and it is important to understand the details to get a bigger picture. We hope that each one of our guests returns home with more knowledge and greater respect for our wild animals.
We have applied a strict policy to reduce, reuse and recycle whenever possible. Our boats are run on electric engines and the batteries are recharged on hydro-power. We also minimise driving and use carbon offset carbon emissions for our vehicles.
We are an awarded ecotourism company. We won the award as best tourism company in Sweden 2015, we won the Grand Travel Award for best ecotourism in Sweden 2009, and we are approved with the Swedish quality label for ecotourism, Natures Best since 2004.
We work with local guides as far as we can. That is why we can take you to the very best places to see wildlife up close and meet locals in areas of Sweden where most other visitors never go. This creates local job opportunities in rural areas and also provides you with a much more authentic experience.
This accommodation has a cosy and friendly atmosphere. The food is locally produced and the dishes are mainly from the area, often with sustainable wild hunted meat and fish along with wild chantarelles and sweetened lingonberries. We often bring hot drinks out into the wild.
During this tour you will meet with the traditional Samis and learn about Sami culture and traditions. You will be invited to have dinner by the camp fire in a traditional lavvu tent and hear about Sami traditions and lifestyle firsthand.
Group size: We operate small group tours, simply because you get a better experience nature in a smaller group.
