Seal safari

The hideaway within Säludden enables you to see seals at rest up close.

About the activity

To get there, you go on a footbridge from a road inside the Säludden area. In other respects, the area is in the seal sanctuary where there is no admittance.

As many as 130 seals have been seen simultaneously, but normally there are 3-5 seals lying on the rocks. The seals go up on their rocks only if the waves are not too high, which is why calm weather or southerly winds provide the best conditions for observing the grey seals. You also get close to shorebirds and seabirds that spend time on the point, including several species that nest there.
