Nature & wild animals

Do you want to get really close to visants, sea eagles, or seals? Join a safari in Blekinge and get wild experiences out of the ordinary.


You do not need to go to Africa to go on game safaris - it is enough to stop at Eriksberg outside Karlshamn. The four-wheel-drive terrain image seen on the African savannah works equally well among the exotic animal species that roam freely in the nature reserve. With an eight-square-meter window pane and camera windows, the subjective experience is maximized among crowned, deaf, wild, moufflon sheep, vines, David deer and a variety of birds. If you choose night safari, you can also see foxes, minks, bats and owls.

Wildlife safari

If you want to do a fossil-free safari, you can choose a bicycle as a means of transport. A highlight is the coffee stop at Utsikten where you both enjoy the view and partly the delicious sandwich from the kitchen at Eriksberg Hotel & Nature Reserve.

A real height is Eriksberg's eagle safari and the search for sea eagles, the most giant bird of prey in Northern Europe with a wing width of up to two and a half meters! If you are lucky, you can watch over twenty sea eagles hover over Eriksberg - a magnificent and powerful sight.

Swim with seals

Utklippan is Sweden's southeastern archipelago and houses a large seal colony of up to 1,000 seals. There you will reach the archipelago traffic from the trading port in Karlskrona, with your own boat or boat taxi. You can also book a seal safari with the company Saltst Splash. If you wish, there is the opportunity to step into the water and swim with the seals.

Stag beetle

If you go there to Tromtö, you can visit lush beech forests and see the occasional echo. The Stag beetle is the most giant insect in Europe and can be over eight centimetres long. The eco-cock flies at dusk from the end of June. Then it is in search of a female that he usually finds on oak with seeping saw. The Stag beetle is a conservationist, Blekinge's landscape animal and is sometimes called deer beetle.
