Sonfjallet National Park-Bear Safaris - Specially Tailored Tours

One of the wildest National Parks in Sweden, that is the Sonfjallet National Park. The history of the Park dates back to 1909, which means that it is one of the oldest ones in the Old Continent. The total area of the Park covers around 103 square kilometres – which is including the land extension which was made in 1989. The Sonfjallet is situated in central part of Sweden, in the Jämtland County. Thanks to its location not so north, the temperatures and the wilderness do not get so extreme. That indeed does not mean, the nature is not stunningly beautiful.

Sonfjallet National Park is probably most known for its wild animals population. The Park with significant Sonfjallet Mountain in its background is home to some wild and interesting natural inhabitants. The enchanting forest is where the bear refuge is hiding, one of the most important ones in Scandinavia.

Therefore, if you are looking for an experience to spot a bear you found a right place to be. Traces of them can be found all around, although spotting one can be quite a tough challenge to be conquered. Claw marks on tree barks are a proof of bear presence.

The park has the biggest concentration of bears in Sweden. This amazing animal presence opens opportunities for various bear safaris and specially tailored tours for visitors wanting to enjoy their visit to the fullest.

Another common animals are for instance the elk, wolves or lynx. All those can be seen in the area covered by wide forest and brisk streaming rivers. Mountain slopes are covered by an extensive system of channels from glacial drainage which is a remnant from the last Ice Age.
