Have you dreamed of seeing a bear up close in the wild? Now you have the chance. During a weekend in May and a weekend in August, you are offered a unique opportunity for a fantastic nature experience combined with an enjoyable stay at Högbo Brukshotell. This is how it works: The adventure starts at 15.00 at Wild Nordic in Kungsberg. 24 km west of Sandviken. Sandwiches are served and all practical and safety informationis gone through. You then take a car and a short distance on foot into the Gästrikeskogen forest and birch grove. Once In place, the guide shows you the best positions in the hide, and on your own, you start the exciting anticipation of the bear to arrive. At full security in the hiding place, you will watch during daylight hours and sleep during the dark hours in the wide beds. Silence and calm are a must for the shy bears to venture out. The layout is well tested and at 90%, guests see the bear in the wild close up.
