Some things in life are worth the extra effort and the short internal flight from Stockholm up to Umea is a prime example, after which a further hour by car will take you to Grano Beckasin Camp and its significant hunting grounds on the borders of Swedish Lapland. 

For those who have not experienced the wonder of Swedish Lapland before, Grano is a delight in waiting as the mighty Umea River passes through this territory on it’s way across Norway to the Swedish Coast bisecting the region’s dense natural forests, much of which have been preserved as National Parks. 

This outfitter offers a variety of sporting and leisure activities throughout the year and while the Hunting Season falls mostly in autumn and winter, there is much to do here in the summer also and the facilities lend themselves to pure hunting activities and also to family adventures in this stunning environment. 

Moose Hunting generally commences in October and while the season continues through until February, the short days and unfavourable weather mean that this is a very short season since snow is generally anticipated in early November. At this location, passive and active hunting activities combine when barking dogs and their handlers can take up to two hunting guests while the remainder of the team work from ‘posts’ or stands located at well known rides and tracks and GPS systems mean that guests are actively involved with the progress of the hunt while those waiting around the perimeter can be appraised of any approaching animals. 

When it comes to bird hunting, again dogs are used but this time it is Finish Spitz that are used to locate and track birds before barking to announce their location to the following hunters. At this point the hunt becomes much more intense as you attempt to stalk in for a clean shot while the barking dog distracts the game in the trees as you approach! 

In Sweden the union between man and dog in a hunting scenario is a joy to behold with both parties fully understanding their role. 

In terms of accommodation, you have the choice of wood cabins in a forest environment which, situated beside their own lake offer an idyllic view of the Swedish Countryside while more refined accommodation complimented with shower facilities can be found closer to the town centre, although as this town boasts a population of less than 2500 people, it’s hardly Birmingham! 

A new innovation for July 2012 and beyond is the introduction of ‘bird houses’ for guests which are well-appointed wooden tree houses situated with an uninterrupted view of the Umea River and the forests that encompass it. The pictures we have taken simply do not do this location justice and guests are invited to ‘book early’ to avoid disappointment!
