Get into close encounter with the singing seals of Sweden's Lapland. Your guide will tell you all about this fascinating creature. Afterwards you can take a rest at the Fisherman’s Lodge and have a taste of the coastal Swedish Lapland island snacks.

What to expect?

Your seal experience start at the charming Renöhamn wharf, 7 km outside the town of Piteå, were your guide welcome you and take you onboard our comfortable boat M/B RENÖN. After a safety and program introduction we start your tour to the seals passing island with beautiful summerhouses and fisherman´s cottages in the inner archipelago, to the outermost unsettled wilderness islands where moose, reindeer and even brown bear roam. The sea eagle is frequently seen in the area, rich in sea birds. At the seal area, you will find numerous of grey seals roosting on rocks just beneath the water, giving an impression they are lying on the water. You hear them grunt and growl, while others are singing and howling almost as wolfs, giving a natural explanation to the mythological singing Sirens, the dangerous beautiful creatures, who lured sailors with their voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their islands. Also in this area, there are many old shipwrecks.

Now in front of you are numerous of grey seals roosting on rocks just beneath the water, giving an impression they are lying on the water. You hear them grunt and growl, while others are singing and howling almost as wolfs, giving a natural explanation to the mythological singing Sirens, the dangerous beautiful creatures, who lured sailors with their voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their islands. Around the boat the heads of curious seals glance at you, until they slowly sink back in the water, to pop up somewhere else.

After this close encounter with these northern seals, you take a rest at the Fisherman’s Lodge and have a taste of the coastal Swedish Lapland island snacks. On the way back, you may be lucky to see the rear Northern Harbor seal, a relic from the Ice age who has survived in these northern waters of the Baltic Sea.
