Safari reviews:

“On the moose safari we were hiking in the deep forest, when suddenly a  big moose was rising up from his rest right in front of us. The moment was both a little bit scary and very exciting.“

Jovanna Richez



“Just amazing! Thank you so much for this unforgettable moose safari experience."

Nordic Discovery - Specialists in outdoor activities, nature experiences and wildlife

Long experience, suitable education, good knowledge, local knowledge, personal service, a genuine interest in outdoor activities, nature experiences and wildlife and a plethora of new, quality equipment. Dream location in the middle of the wilderness in a wildlife-dense nature reserve. Close to Stockholm, Västerås, Örebro, Uppsala and Eskilstuna

More than 30 years experience in adventure tourism

Mikael Nilsson's CV includes 10 years' experience from founding, building up and managing Nordic Discovery, 10 years' experience with adventure tourism in South America, 10 years' experience with the winter tourism industry with work as a ski patroller and a few years' experience with working in a number of different countries

Mikael, who grew up in Sweden, was educated at the Sport Tourist School, above the Arctic Circle in the town Kiruna in Northern Sweden. The Sport Tourist School offers extensive education in the broad spectra of outdoor activities and adventure tourism. Several journeys to the four corners of the earth soon followed. Among these were three ‘round-world’ trips. Mikael stayed, lived and worked in many countries along the way: in New Zealand as ski patrol manager, in Australia as a life guard, in Hawaii as a photographer, in Japan as a ski teacher, in Taiwan as an English teacher and in Hong-Kong as a security guard. Ten years in Latin America followed with work at GAP Adventures. The Great Adventure People is one of the biggest adventure companies in South America. Mikael worked for several years as a tour leader on long tours in all the Latin American countries. This was followed by several years as the South American Manager at the Great Adventure People's South American office in Peru's capital, Lima

“I have been privileged to be able to live my dreams and work with my biggest interest, outdoor activities. Something which has been, and is very fun and interesting”
Mikael Nilsson
Adventure coordinator/Wildlife tracker/CEO

Nothing was the same after the day that Mikael walked in to Rosario's shoe store in the neighborhood Barranco, in Peru's capital Lima. The store was located just a few blocks down the road from GAP Adventure's office. Today, Rosario manages Nordic Discovery's Adventure Center. The shoes are replaced by canoes and kayaks, and one of the biggest cities on earth is replaced by a small village in the Scandinavian wilderness

Nordic Discovery was founded in 2003, when Mikael and Rosario moved back to Sweden

Join the guided tours or discover the wilderness by yourself. Mikael and Rosario Nilsson wish you a warm welcome to Sweden
