About

This is a volunteer programme for those looking for a short break away into the wilderness. An alternative to a holiday, this tracking experience is ideal for families, couples with children, retired folk, travellers, nature enthusiasts, wildlife photographers, and so on. Living in pristine Swedish wilderness, you will be spending a week watching the wildlife in a landscape which is fast disappearing from this planet.

The itinerary for one week is fairly flexible. An example is below:

Day 1. Pick up in Sveg, possibility to do shopping for the week. Coffee upon arrival at the base camp - Dalsvallen, orientation and talk on programme, access to amenities.

Day 2. Bear tracking and viewing (local fauna & flora discovery), local map and compass reading, basic survival skills etc.

Day 3. Fly fishing course. Day 4. Canoe/beaver tracking on the river.

Day 5. Day off for hiking Sånfjället National Park, fishing, more canoeing (if interested), extra bear tracking (if interested).

Day 6. Bear Tracking and viewing (wilderness survival).

Day 7. Packing up, cleaning and lift to Sveg. The bear viewing is done with complete respect for the bears, no baits are used. Sightings are not guarantee, however the valley is home to over 30 brown bears. You will also be surrounded by other wildlife such as; golden eagles, lynx, moose, and beavers. There will also be hideouts and special areas where you can sit and scan the valleys with your binoculars or camera.
