Wildlife Monitoring & Deep Wilderness Expedition, Sweden

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

This is a comprehensive field expedition designed to teach you many skills you will need for future adventures in the deep wilderness or even for a future career in wildlife biology.

Participants will be immersed into one of the last bastions of true untouched wilderness in Europe. You will be travelling through a pathless wilderness where the only human industry has been reindeer herding. The forest will not be old, it will be ancient. The rare wildlife that can be found in this place leaves us to not fully disclose the location where this expedition takes place. We do not, for ethical reasons want people to venture into these areas with the intent of causing harm to nature or wildlife

The focus species of this expedition is the golden eagle which is considered Near Threatened in Scandinavia. And the brown bear which has been on the Swedish red list since 2015. You will also be studying beaver at close range. This is if the hut is still active which can vary from year to year. Other species in the area are moose, arctic fox, muskoxen, wolverine to name a few.

Participants should take note that this is not a wildlife safari! There is never a guarantee to see wildlife. You are in their backyard for a long time, so your chances increase greatly.
