The night's events in the snow

After a snowfall the forest becomes an open book. Animal tracks, wing impressions and territorial markings reveal who did what, and sometimes even why. An experienced trail guide can read and explain the signs in the snow. Stories about the creatures that return when the evening wild supper is served with flickering candles and sparkling snow outside the window.

There is plenty of wildlife in Västmanland's large forests, but most animals stay hidden. Few of us have ever gotten a glimpse of a lynx, but lynx, wolves and foxes are some of the animals around Ulvsbomuren. Timid predators during the winter that hunt deer, elk and hares. After a favourable snowfall is not only the biodiversity revealed, but also the life and death adventures that have taken place in the forest during the night.

Our wilderness guide can explain all about this during a guided ski tour searching for animal tracks. With luck, he will also find a male Capercaillie or some Black grouse in a tree top. Maybe we can also find traces of grouse in the snow, or of an owl who has caught a wood mouse or the hole left after the fox who´s tried to catch a vole under the snow. At some point during the tour, we will find a suitable place to eat our lunch and enjoy the total silence of the winter forest.

In the afternoon, with rosy cheeks, we return to Ulvsbomuren's timber cabins where a warm fireplace awaits. After some quality time with a book, chatting or napping, it is once again time for moose, deer, grouse or other wild game. This time lovingly prepared in a unique three-course wild game dinner. Meat from the sheep farm is mixed with vegetables and herbs in a tasty way, together with the forest's contribution of game, mushrooms, berries, fish or crayfish.

After the dinner there is time for some additional wilderness luxury – the wood fired sauna. Rolling around in the snow after a hot sauna is not only refreshing but makes all your big city problems melt away. You and your group, family or friends always have Ulvsbomuren exclusively for yourselves.
