A deep and lasting interest for the nature was awakened already at an early age while growing up on a smallholding in southwestern Sweden. Studies of ecology and nature conservation at Lund University were finished by a dissertation about farmland-feeding geese in 1989. My research turned me into a modern Nils Holgersson, travelling with the geese forth and back between their breeding grounds in southernmost Sweden and their wintering grounds in south-western Spain during 19 years. By and by I started to guide visiting bird-watchers to different hot-spots. Then there was only a short step to start organising and guiding bird-watching tours. Since 1998 I have led more than 140 tours to different destinations in Europe: Doñana & Extremadura, other parts of Andalucia, Falsterbo/Scania, eastern Poland, eastern Hungary, Kolka/Kurzeme, Lubans and so on. The length of most tours varied between 9-12 days. The aim has been to offer affordable tours, with the birds in focus not too much driving, and accommodation next to the birds. Besides bird-watching tours, I have also organised several introduction tours to Latvia, combining nature, culture, history and cultural history. Hopefully, my kind of non- commercial tours will be in demand also in the coming years.
Welcome to contact me, whether you are a small or a larger group wanting me to organise a tour for you. I can design an offer fitting the special interests of the group members. An airport-to-airport price, including costs for car, fuel, driver/guide, accommodation, breakfast, coffee/tea breaks, picnic lunch, evening meal (in local restaurants), check-list and after-tour report, is if possible calculated. For some of the destinations, a short presentation is given.
