FOLLOW US INTO THE HOME RANGE OF THE OWLS IN THE BOREAL FOREST!
WHAT IS AN OWL SAFARI?
Among spruce and pine, in the deep forest of Bergslagen, lives the mysterious owl.
During spring and early summer, we will go out to look and listen for our Swedish owls.
April, May and June are their breeding months, which means that they're more or less tied to
the same place for a period, which creates the best conditions for experiencing them.
The most common owls on our tours are the ural owl, pygmy owl, boreal owl and great grey owl.
Some are stationary and stay in their home range all year round, others are vagabonds and return to their old nesting sites from time to time. The availability of food and nesting places are what rules.
We welcome a maximum of 6 guests during these tours to create as little disturbance as possible.
We always keep a respectful distance to the animals and move calm and quietly in the forest.
DAY TOUR, 16:00 - 22:00≈
We meet at 16:00 at the agreed place and go out to the forest together.
On site we will visit several of our secret locations to look and listen for owls.
If the owls nest, you will have a great chance to see and photograph hunting parents
and study what their lifes look like during spring and nesting season.
During the tour you will learn the different callings of the different owl species, their habitats, what they eat, how they live,
hunt and how you can find owls where you live.
We'll enjoy some swedish fika and coffee/tea when given the opportunity.
Later in the evening we'll have some tasty sandwiches as well.
As it's wild nature we work with, small changes can be made in the schedule, all to make your experience
as good as possible. We work all the time to ensure that the conditions are the best.
