Ecotours – Wilderness tour
How do man and animals survive in the subarctic? We travel by car to the west of Kiruna, with open views towards the highest mountains and an unspoilt river. The area is scenic with great views and a chance to see moose along the road.
We make short stops and visit exciting places in the river valley. Otter, reindeer, moose, hare, fox, wolverine, lynx and their tracks can be seen, together with some very specialized birds; grouse, capercaille, dipper, swan, Siberian tit, and Siberian jay. You will learn more about their adaptations, but also; traditional use of natural resources and history of the region, by a well educated local guide, (MSc Natural Sciences). We will also feed birds and study their behaviour. Some of the birds are only seen in the north boreal forest.
We enjoy a light lunch by the fire, in a cozy timber hut. Dinner consists of a warming fish-, mushroom- or reindeersoup with bread, mainly based on local products. After the warm meal we taste Chaga or Glögg with traditional cookies.
We work with small groups and high quality, as we wish to give you a genuine experience.
