Here you’ll find different arrangements to discover nature further, accompanied by a specialized nature guide.
In the spring there are several interesting tours possible to follow and watch specific birds in their courting game, such as the grouse and capercaillie. Or you can discover owls in the evening with their specific sounds, night jar or cranes.
Try a wildlife safari where you can discover deer, foxes, wild boar, moose and beavers.
Special boat trips in a wooden canoe to explore the area are available from May to the end of September. Another challenge for autumn is to search for edible nature and to make a real meal out of it.

There’s a thin crisp to the air and a stillness to the woods we’re walking through. A stillness only to be found in early autumn. Red lingon-berries are gleaming like rubies from the lower bushes.
All together we collect them and find ourselves a sunny bank by the small lake. There we make camp, cooking a traditional swedish Råraka (potatoe pancake) and making jam from the berries that we’ve just collected.
Stories of the past circles around the fire., while yellow leaves are falling. We can hear a black woodpecker drumming and calling. It’s a good day to be outdoors in Tiveden.
