Birding Southwest Sweden and Northern Denmark

Scandinavia is beautiful and serene.  If you love boats and maritime history and spending time on and by the sea, this trip is for you.  Scandinavia is a special place and we will be visiting some very unique locations in Sweden and Denmark. The great tour of southern Scandinavia starts in Copenhagen and travels through southwest Sweden.  Most of the tour travels through southwest Sweden: The thick forests of the Kullaberg Peninsula and the sunny seashore cliffs of Hovs Hallar. There will be time for birding, hiking, nature loving, exploring, shopping, wandering, resting, museum visits, boating, meeting locals and eating lots of herring.  Come to Scandinavia and have some fun!
