Trip Overview

Deep in Sweden's boreal forests, the haunting howl of the European grey wolf can be heard at night, echoing through the towering pines and curtains of moss. Join Atlas Obscura and Tastemade on a six-day adventure where you'll have the chance to accompany experienced wildlife guides as they track the grey wolf and bear witness to its otherworldly call. We’ll journey into the wild in search of Sweden’s spectacular flora and fauna, pausing to bathe in the quiet of the woods, swim and canoe in secluded lakes, forage for wild mushrooms and bilberries, and learn the history of fire-making. Later in the week, we’ll hike into the woods at sundown to spend a night camping in wolf territory, where we’ll huddle together, waiting for the wailing of wild grey wolves to surround us.

  • Camping in wolf territory
  • Fresh, foraged meals
  • Canoeing in secluded lakes
  • Wildlife spotting with expert guides


Itineraries and daily schedules are subject to change. We expect to do everything listed in the itinerary, though the order may be rearranged based on weather or other local conditions.

Traveling Solo?

You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. We have two options for you: 

Shared Room: You’ll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender. 

Private Room: Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $160. After booking your trip, please request a private room when you fill out your traveler information form and we’ll add the option to your booking and final balance.

Activity Level

This itinerary involves staying up late for nighttime adventures that often last past midnight (varies with the time of year and sunset). Travelers should feel comfortable walking two to three miles over the course of each day, spending time in nature, walking after dark in the woods with a headlamp, and sometimes walking on uneven terrain. Since this is a wilderness trip, you should also be comfortable sleeping in a tent for one night.


We’ll be staying at the Färna Herrgård (manor) for four nights of our trip, with one night spent camping in tents in the Swedish wilderness. All camping supplies will be provided, including a three-season Swedish sleeping bag. Please note that there may not be access to a toilet during the night spent in wolf territory.

Arrival & Departure

Our trip begins at Stockholm's Arlanda airport at 3 p.m. on Day 1. We recommend you arrive in Stockholm by 2 p.m. that day so you can meet the group at Terminal 5 by Tourist Information at 3 p.m. We will transfer together by road for two hours to Skinnskatteberg. We cannot wait for delayed flights, so you'll have to hire a taxi for the two-hour transfer to Färna village if you miss the transfer. If traveling directly to Färna by car or public transport, please arrive by 5 p.m.

Our trip concludes on Day 6, with drop-off at Avesta Krylbo train station near Skinnskatteberg. We will book you a train ticket to Stockholm Central Station or Stockholm Arlanda Airport, whichever you prefer. If leaving Sweden directly after our trip, we recommend booking a flight that departs no earlier than 7 p.m. or planning to stay an extra night in Stockholm before heading onwards. If you’d like to extend your trip, we’re happy to provide suggestions for things to do and see in the area on your own.
