The most popular of our activities is Moose Safari on snowmobiles. We start at the Wilderness exhibition and head towards one of our forest destinations where we believe the moose may be found. Often we see them already when we are leaving the village, sometimes we need to look for a few hours. Once we got enough snow in the area, we will issue Moose Guarantee which means that guests need not pay for their stay in the event that we cannot find and show you moose in the wild.

EXAMPLE OF A WILDERNESS PACKAGE CONTAINING MOOSE SAFARI, SAUNA/HOT TUB, WILDERNESS ACCOMODATION AND CONFERENCE:
DAY ONE – THE WILDERNESS EXHIBITION
You arrive at Svansele Wilderness Exhibition where your guide greets you with a warm welcome and describes the schedule of events and informs you where to find toilets, changing rooms, etc. You are then given the opportunity to explore all the rooms in the exhibition, filled with old tools and taxidermied animals. While you wander the rooms your guide prepares your lunch over the open fire. Most people choose our Swedish meatballs with potatoes, onions, vegetables and lingonberry jam.
After a mandatory lesson in snowmobile safety, you will put on appropriate clothing such as a cap, gloves, shoes, pants, jackets and a helmet. We then bring out the snowmobiles and embark on our quest to find the king of the forest. Half way we prepare a fire and enjoy a coffee break in one of our shelters that are strategically placed around the forests.
DINNER IN THE FOREST
When dinner time approaches we have arrived at, for example, The Wilderness Camp. At a time suitable to you, the guide will begin preparing your dinner over an open fire in one of the large huts. Our exquisite food and the conversations we have provide an opportunity to unwind and relax. For those who aren’t ready to wind down just yet, there are several activity stations such as reindeer lasso, axe throwing, dart blowing etc.
SAUNA AND HOT TUBS
Fire stove saunas and hot tubs are then heated for you. Sitting in a hot tub under the open sky watching the stars is incredibly soothing. Still not ready to relax ? Try the ice covered wooden slide where you land in another hot(or cold) wooden tub. Right next to it we prepare an open hole in the ice of a small creek that flows past.
After the softening bath and relaxing sauna we feast on a late night dinner and have some water to re-hydrate. We then fall asleep in warm sleeping bags on top of reindeer skins. The sound of the open fire in the large cabins or stoves in the small gently lull us to sleep. Those who need more traditional style accomodation may ride back to Svansele and spend the night in Knutes hotel with all its amenities.
DAY 2, CONFERENCE
All rested and alert, we enjoy breakfast in the wilderness camp before we ride our snowmobiles back to the Wilderness exhibition. With the mind in a relaxed state from yesterdays activities and impressions, you then confere in our unique “Conference Forest” where the sight of animals and nature are mixed with modern technology. The Conference Forest offers the possibility to customize the number of rooms and their size, thus adapting it to the number of guests.
