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.
Other things to note
In case you will not find availability on the calendar for the day you would like to join me in this experience, contact me anyway: I could manage to have the availability of a minibus and so hosting more people.

Was a very nice morning trip to Sweden to walk along the beach and then see native Seals. Manuel was a very nice host always checking in and being friendly. However, ultimately we went to a public reserve and so just felt that it was quite pricey considering what it was as could have been done ourselves.

Manuel is a great experience host and genuinely is a very good person, he cares about the people he takes on the trip and also deeply cares about the environment (he was picking up trash people had left on the way, that was fantastic to notice!) and discussed how it is better to approach the wild animals without disturbing their natural way of living. We had a fantastic walk, saw the seals and managed to get quite close to take the pictures and also had many meaningful conversations with the host, overall a great thing to do if you have a free day in Copenhagen or Malmo and I will definitely send friends to spend a day with Manuel and the seals! ;)

Manual was a wonderful host and guide! We were able to see the seals, get some great photos, and enjoy some coffee and pastries thanks to his planning. He was also kind enough to assist in setting us up for our next adventure by giving us more direct transportation. Highly recommend this experience and host. Thanks, Manual!

It was my first experience on Airbnb, and I am quite sure that I won’t find another one as good as this wonderful one! Manuel was very patient as our bus was delayed, he takes us directly from the bus station and drive us to the natural reserve. After a pleasure walk and many interesting anecdotes about the nature, photography and many other things, we finally saw the grey sales. We were lucky with the weather, there were so many and we took pictures (btw thanks for the advice!!) with his professional material. I definitely recommend this experience, because of the grey seals but also the great guide who is Manuel. I learned a lot thanks to him. It was a real pleasure to meet you (and the Swedish cake was so good), thanks for this moment of share and hope to see you again between Italy, Sweden and Poland!

Un paesaggio bellissimo, e già questo vale la pena, camminare sulla sabbia vicino alle onde per circa mezz'ora, scoprire lo sguardo curioso delle foche e vederle giocare. È stata una bellissima esperienza che senza l'aiuto di Manuel non saremmo stati in grado di organizzare! Consigliatissimo

Der Ausflug war etwas besonderes. Manuel kennt sich nicht nur gut mit der Umgebung, sondern auch mit dem Gebiet darum herum aus. Außerdem hat er großen Wert auf das Wohl der Tiere gelegt, und aktiv darauf geachtet, dass der Ort frei von Müll bleibt.
