Wolf howling with night in tent

What to Expect
Day 1: Arrive at Udden guesthouse at 1pm and meet our guide. Lunch not provided, eat before you arrive.

Before we head out into the wolf territory we sit down to learn the basics about wolves. We then head out to a nearby forest where a family of wolves keep their territory. Depending on the current situation with the wolves we may search for paw prints, droppings, killed prey and other tracks that can prove that wolves are around.

We then all help out to set up our tented camp. We light a camp fire and enjoy an outdoor evening meal.

As night falls we go closer to the wolves to increase our chances of hearing them howl. We always stay at a respectful distance as we don't want to disturb the wolves. It is of course in our interest that the wolves do not move to another area. Our guides are experienced and know how to handle any situation that may occur.

During the evening you must be prepared to walk up to an hour in rough terrain, often in the dark, in silence. Our aim is to reach some strategic location where we can settle down and spend a few hours to listen.

This can be both a meditative and thrilling experience. Imagine sitting on a hill in a dark forest, surrounded by trees and watch the night sky above knowing that a family of wolves is nearby. We wait, listen and hope to hear them howl.

Hearing wolves howl is one of the most exciting nature experiences that you can have in nature. Although we cannot guarantee that this will happen, we do actually hear wolves howl on most of our tours.

After midnight we return to our camp and sleep well in our tents.

Day 2: Morning coffee in the forest.

At some tours we choose to get up early for a short morning excursion. Whether we do this or not depends on what we experienced during the night and the current situation with the wolves.

We pack up our tented camp and head back to civilisation for a well deserved brunch at the guesthouse before we conclude the tour.

As you may be tired after a night in the forest we can highly recommend staying the night at Pensionat Udden, a great place to relax and sleep well before you leave.

Excellent guides and well organised event. For anyone interested in a true wildlife experience in Sweden, this is a must do. There are no guarantees of wolf encounters, they are completely wild animals after all, which added to the excitement when we did hear them...More
