    It was a very cool trip for me as we saw deers, 2 brown moose and 1 white moose and hares. We also had a nice swedish midsommer meal after a nice short walk in a swedish forest. Our guide Louise was very knowledgeable and informative. I learned sooooo much. Tack sa mycket. Merci Beaucoup.

    Our guide was super lovely and knowledgable. Was good to get out of the city centre too.

    However as u cannot guarantee a moose sighting- there is huge potential for disappointment, making the entire activity a bit pointless (we have deer and hare back home).

    I appreciate that others have been more successful - so I guess it's just crapshoot.

    Last night my husband and I went on the Sunset Safari, and there was nothing we could fault. Our guide was great, friendly and knowledgeable. She sent us off foraging in the forest for blueberries and lingonberries whilst she prepared a midsummer meal for us in a clearing. We then set off wildlife hunting, and were so fortunate as we saw a moose and her young, lots of deer leaping through the corn fields, crane and hares. Excellent binoculars too. The evening sped by. Would highly recommend.

    The evening started with a drive to a pretty place for a typical Swedish meal. We had three types of pickled herring, potatoes, crackers with cheese, and a salad. So much food. We saw every kind of animal expected: hares, foxes, wild boar families, roe deer, a squirrel, and several moose. Our guide, Toya (I'm sorry that the name is probably not right), could not have been more engaging. Ten stars!

    We were intrigued by the idea of getting into the Swedish countryside in hopes of seeing moose. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable .. unfortunately she could not produce a moose for us that night. Midsummer dinner authentic. Suggestion: even with small group of 5, a microphone in van needed

    The guide was very nice and quite informative and the outdoor picnic was tasty but I do think this tour is massively overpriced for the content. There were 8 of us on the tour all paying around 114 per head presumeably - overheads for 1 guide, mini bus and inexpensive picnic content made it seem a bit of a rip off to be honest. Also I know the wildlife cannot be quaranteed but on a 4 hour tour we literally saw a couple of moose for 30 seconds so far away you wouldn't know what they were, then a few roe deer and one fox. We didn't do a 15 minute trek into the forest as advertised and nor did we visit the ancient runes, so all in all pretty underwhelmed and certainly felt we did not get our money's worth.

    OK. Could have been better for the price if the wildlife expert had not been sick. The meal was good and a lot of fun. More information, a bit of a bush walk and explosion about plants and animals such as eating , breeding , berries edible in the forest etc. Sadly only deer around for our trip. No Moose .

    Nice to get out of city and see the countryside. Saw wild blue berries and lingonberries, and a couple of Viking stone monuments. Midsummer picnic. Only one moose, but at least 15 deer.

    Very nice trip to see the local animals. Tour provides a wonderful picnic dinner featuring Swedish favorites including Swedish fish. Our tour guide was terrific and personable. He made sure that we were comfortable and spoke effectively about the flora and fauna of the local area. He did a great job spotting animals for us too. The touring van was in top notch condition, it was just my wife and I and the guide/driver. We had 2 full days in Stockholm and wanted to see some of the area outside the city. this tour accomplished that and more.

    A refreshing trip out of the city. Our guide met us promptly, and we loaded up and drove about 20 minutes into the countryside. Our first stop was for a delicious feast of Swedish specialties- and they even catered to those of us who were Gluten Free! Then we were all provided with binoculars and instructions on how to look for moose. We drove through lovely farm areas, looking in Rapeseed fields, and finally spotted a moose. We also saw Roe deer, hares, cranes, swans, and a hawk. Our guide was knowledgeable and had a love of the animals and the forests. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Sweden.
