The region of Jämtland / Härjedalen is home to a great variety of wild animals and unique nature phenomena. The “king of the forest”, the moose, is part of Jämtland’s official emblem for a good reason, since you may not only spot him in animal parks but also as he crosses the roads from time to time.
Besides mooses, foxes, beavers, lynx, snow hares, golden eagles and a great variety of other birds, Härjedalen is one of the rare spots where you can also go on a photo safari for another fascinating inhabitant of the wild: the bear. These exclusive guided tours however, can only be booked around September and until the winter comes. At all other times our very respected neighbor usually keeps a good distance from human beings.
During the rest of the year you always have good chances to meet the reindeers that roam the highlands and woods all around us. And you should save some time to visit the musk. There are merely a handful left running wild in Sweden – actually almost right outside our doorstep. But to make sure you will get to observe them, you can visit a nearby musk park, where these wonderful animals have found shelter and a refugee.
