Stockholm: Winter Nature Hike with Campfire Lunch

2. Stockholm: Winter Nature Hike with Campfire Lunch

Make your way to the meeting point and take a short 15-minute drive to a nature reserve in the Swedish wilderness. Upon arrival, put on your wooly hat and begin your adventure into the pristine snow. On the way, learn about plants, Scandinavian animals, and natural scenery. Avoid the paths as much as possible so you will get an appreciation for the depth of the forest and its secret spots. Take a break at around noon and build a fire to warm up. Cook lunch and enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee or tea cooked on the open flames. In the Swedish winter, it won't be long before the sun sets on the horizon, so torch lamps will be needed for the last part of the hike. The afternoon is usually the best time to spot animals. If the temperature allows, walk on one of the frozen lakes on your way out of the nature reserve, before returning to the city full of memories.

What people are saying about Stockholm

Wonderful hike through nature with lots of information about Sweden

The tour guide was super friendly and the meeting point was easy to find. We are about 20 minutes from here by bus. drove to the nature reserve (René gave us great entertainment during the trip). It was absolutely amazing that Stockholm has real forests right on the doorstep ... we went to a water source first and drank pure "natural water" and then hiked around a beautiful lake. Then it went up a bit and held a fika (Swedish coffee break) on the rocks. Then we went straight into the forest and discovered some animals such as deer and squirrels ... we were told a lot about nature and otherwise we had very interesting conversations. The lunch around the campfire was great (meatballs, for me a vegan version) ... everything was organic! I would recommend this tour to everyone, as a nature lover or as an alternative to normal walking tours, here you get all information about Stockholm / Sweden. THANK YOU!

Excellent! Wonderful landscapes. Hike of about 10 kilometers so no difficulty, very accessible. Very pleasant and accessible guide who stops regularly to explain the reserve, nature or even Sweden in general. What is also great is the support from the starting point to the reserve and vice versa. Plus two breaks during the ride with small snack. I totally recommend this change of scenery!

Magnificent hike in the heart of the forest, in the heart of Stockholm. Very natural landscapes, during the walk, explanations of the plants, picking blueberries and lingonberries. We even saw two deer! picnic break at the edge of the water where the sausages are cooked over a wood fire lit with birch bark, top! A big thank you to the guide. To do Absolutely!

What an experience! The walk was intensive, yet really rewarding! There is absolutely no sound of the city at all, and we spotted a lot of wild animals during our hike. The organiser gave us plenty of food and beverages to take on our trip, and the sandwich tasted like heaven!

Nice guides and knowledge of the wildlife. Walk can also be done by beginners Campfire Lunch Nice intermezzo as well
