Butterfly safari

Join us for an unique excursion in beautiful environment. With horse and carriage we travel in a relaxed pace along small country roads, passing through a small typical swedish village. The guide tells about the interesting cultural landscape we travel through. After a while, it’s time to stop at some of the favorite places for butterflies. We learn how to catch butterflies with our nets in able to take a closer look at their color and pattern. Together we look for the species in the butterfly book. The journey continues past colourful meadows, open fields and green forests. Along the way we look for more butterflies and stop if we see them. By a beautiful lake we stop for a cup of coffee. In the water we look for microorganisms with our big aquascope. This is also the favorite place for colorful dragonflies. For those who wish, there is time for a quick swim in the lake before we head back.
