What you'll do

Kolarbyn Ecolodge allows you to get back to wild nature and have a DIY experience. You’ll have plenty of free time at the ecolodge to explore the property’s wild forest, canoe and swim at the lake, relax in the sauna, and cook your meals over an open fire.

On day two, we’ll travel in the evening to a nearby lake and take a boat ride to spot beavers. The next day, we’ll drive to a nearby forest to see moose, then have dinner in the forest. While at the ecolodge, you will stay in huts in the forest with no electricity or showers.

L'avventura é stata meravigliosa ed adatta a chiunque abbia voglia di passare dei bei momenti immersi nella natura selvaggia della Svezia, tutto é organizzato nei minimi dettagli, le persone sono meravigliose e di una professionalità indiscutibile. L'avventura comprendeva due safari, il Safari in cerca di castori a bordo di un gommone e il Safari in cerca di alci a bordo di un furgone. Ottima la partitura dei due tour: le guide, molto esperte e professionali, hanno mantenuto il ritmo di entrambe i tour che sono risultati entrambi emozionanti..

Wonderful place. Had a great time wandering around gathering berries and mushrooms and fine tuning my fire building and camp cooking skills. Excellent camp host and guides on the moose and beaver safaris, and a special shout out to Jonas Landolsi and his bushcraft course - well worth it. Be aware, there were mosquitos when I was there.
