What you'll do

I'll pick you up at 9:00 am at your preferred location in Malmö.
With my car, a comfortable and spacious Ford Mondeo SW or a minivan, we will drive for about 40-45 minutes to our destination where we will leave the car and start a walk in the beautiful nature reserve, the oldest in Sweden, surrounded by the sea.
While following the long peninsula we will have the possibility to spot some of the birds breeding in the area and when we will reach the end we will approach a large amount of grey seals.
To do not bother the animals we will keep a safe distance, but I can assure you that 50/60 meters are close enough!
We will spend some time watching these beautiful mammals, inside or outside the water, while I will give you some information about them and the area.
I will give you the possibility to use my professional gear and I will help you to optimise your photographic skills. Then the pictures will be yours and yours only, I will send them to you in a couple of days after the experience.
Depends on the weather, by the sea in winter can be cold, after 1-1,5 hour we will start to go back to the car and then to Malmö.

Please note: the area is continuously changed and shaped by the water tides and the weather, and the seals adapt to it. The place where they are outside the water can change and it can be farther.

Excellente journée aux côtés de Manuel. Passionné par son métier et par la nature, il est très facile d'échanger avec lui. J'ai eu la chance de voir de nombreux phoques. Expérience réussie !

Diese Tour war ein besonderes Erlebnis für mich. Ich habe die schöne Wanderung am Meer entlang trotz Wind und Kälte genossen. Warme Kleidung ist unbedingt erforderlich. Und am Ende dann die Belohnung. Robben ganz aus der Nähe beobachten zu können ist für jeden Naturliebhaber sicher etwas ganz besonders. Manuel ist sehr nett, hilfsbereit und freundlich. Er hat unsere Gruppe den ganzen Weg unterhalten und sein Wissen über die Natur und seine Bewohner mit uns geteilt. Am Ende gab es noch Kaffee und Kuchen. Ein rundum gelungenes Erlebnis.

Bonita experiencia. Tuvimos muy buen tiempo para ser fin de año. Pudimos observar a las focas de cerca, y disfrutar de un paseo por la naturaleza. Una playa preciosa. Manuel se preocupó de darnos una buena atención. Agradable conversación. Agradecemos que nos fuese a buscar, ya que nos equivocamos de estación. Nosotros éramos dos personas. La visita se hizo conjuntamente con otro grupo de 5 personas. Viaje en microbus. Paseo por la playa. Cafe y galletas al terminar la experiencia para entrar en calor. Preciosas fotografias. Gracias!

The experience was great. I would recommend this kind of experience, but on warm and sunny days. The cold weather was an impediment, but it showed us that we and our bodies are capable to endure a lot of things.
