Day Trip Activities

If you have booked your accommodation at the Wilderness Lodge, or elsewhere, you could compliment your stay with the following activities. These are fun adventure-filled activities for the entire family/group. We accommodate to both smaller groups as well as bigger groups. Note that standard day trips can be open groups.

If you are looking for a more private and personal experience specifically for your group/family, please contact us for a tailored package. This way we can provide exactly what you are looking for as we can adjust speed and time according to your family/groups wishes.

We also provide longer activities that go from one day to several days in the wilderness such as Bushcraft & Survival Courses, Wilderness Camping, fishing vacations and hunting. These can be found under 'packages'.
