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

Howling wolves can be heard at night

The Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve in southern Dalarna and northern Västmanland is one of the biggest nature reserves in Sweden. High hills and deep valleys surround a long stretch of excellent paddling water with steep cliffs descending dramatically into the river along narrow stretches. The wilderness is located on top of a higher plateau and the wildlife is rich. There are a lot of moose, deer and beavers but also lynxes, wolves and bears are represented. The chances of seeing lynxes, wolves and bears are, however, very slim because the animals are low in number and very shy. Sometimes howling wolves can be heard at night. Moose, deer and beavers are more common. The reserve is one of the most moose-populated areas in the world and one of few wolf territories in Sweden. None of the animals pose a threat to humans.

    • Klotensjön. Along the southern canoe trail

The closest wilderness

The beautiful and untouched nature reserve is classified as central Europe's closest wilderness: 2.5 hours journey (200 km) by car from the Swedish capital, Stockholm. The nature reserve has an abundance of good canoeing, bicycling and hiking trails and is very well looked after. Along the trails there are a great number of rest areas with sturdy rain and wind shelters. At the rest areas there are good, strong fireplaces in front of each rain and wind shelter. Nordic Discovery's Adventure Center is located in the small village, Kloten, between Skinnskatteberg and Kopparberg along road 233. Road description >>

What makes the area unique ?

The forest has been protected from development since 1950, when the wilderness become a nature reserve which is the reason why the forest has been left in peace and why the wilderness still is a popular retreat for many wild animals. A common sight in the rest of mid Sweden is the presents of vacation houses. The absence of vacation houses and a very rich wildlife makes the nature reserve unique from the rest of central Sweden. Read about the Nature Reserve >>
