Trip Overview
Overview

Deep in Sweden's boreal forests, the haunting howl of the European grey wolf can be heard at night, echoing through the towering pines and curtains of moss. Join Atlas Obscura and Tastemade on a six-day adventure where you'll have the chance to accompany experienced wildlife guides as they track the grey wolf and bear witness to its otherworldly call. We’ll journey into the wild in search of Sweden’s spectacular flora and fauna, pausing to bathe in the quiet of the woods, swim and canoe in secluded lakes, forage for wild mushrooms and bilberries, and learn the history of fire-making. Later in the week, we’ll hike into the woods at sundown to spend a night camping in wolf territory, where we’ll huddle together, waiting for the wailing of wild grey wolves to surround us.

Highlights
  • Camping in wolf territory
  • Fresh, foraged meals
  • Canoeing in secluded lakes
  • Wildlife spotting with expert guides

Additional Info

Pricing

The total cost of this trip is $3100, based on double occupancy.

Traveling Solo?

You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. We have two options for you: 

Shared Room: You’ll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender. 

Private Room: Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $160. When booking, please select the single room package option.

Accommodations

We’ll be staying at the Färna Manor for four nights of our trip, with one night spent camping in tents in the Swedish wilderness. All camping supplies will be provided, including a three-season Swedish sleeping bag. Please note that there may not be access to a toilet during the night spent in wolf territory.

Arrival/Departure

Our trip begins at Arlanda airport at 3 p.m. on Day 1. We recommend you arrive in Stockholm by 2 p.m. that day so you can meet the group and make our way to Skinnskatteberg. Our trip concludes in the morning on Day 6. If leaving Sweden directly after our trip, we recommend departing any time that evening. If you’d like to extend your trip, we’re happy to provide suggestions for things to do and see in the area on your own.

Activity Level

Travelers should feel comfortable walking three to five miles over the course of each day, spending time in nature, remaining on their feet for long periods of time, walking after dark in the woods with a headlamp, and sometimes walking on uneven terrain. Since this is a wilderness trip, you should also be comfortable sleeping in a tent for one night.
