Eriksberg Hotel and Nature Reserve

Blekinge, South Sweden

Welcome to the largest game reserve in the Nordic region. Meet the wildlife on the animal’s terms, enjoy gastronomic delights with meals made with love and wake up with wild animals by staying at the Safari villa or luxury glamping.


Eriksberg has a long tradition of caring for wild animals, dating back to the 1940’s when the internationally famous author, zoologist and nature photographer Bengt Berg took over the estate. He fenced the area to research deer stags to breed a good strain of them, protected wild eagles and brought the Canadian Goose to the country. He envisioned that Eriksberg would be a place to enjoy wild animals in a natural habitat.

After Bengt Berg’s death, his son Iens Illum Berg took over the farm and the animals. He made sure that the large enclosure was completed in 1979. In 2015 the enclosure expanded further and now covers approx.

925 hectares, one of the largest game enclosures in Northern Europe and the biggest safari park in Scandinavia.

Extensive culture investments have been made with Mellby Gård’s ownership since 2008, a high quality retail service owned by Rune Andersson. The farm now offers hotel rooms of a very high standard, where the theme of nature and animals is evident in all the furnishings.  There are also top-class restaurants with unique food and drink and where the locally produced game forms the basis of everything that is served. 

Eriksberg is part of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Blekinge Archipelago and Natura 2000.

Nature Reserve - on the animals’ terms!

The reserve holds 1,500 animals in summertime, when you can see the wild animals in their natural environment; Red deer, Fallow deer, Père David’s deer, Wild boar, Wisent or European bison and Mouflons roam freely together. Here, biodiversity has been preserved and developed into one of the most interesting areas in Scandinavia

European Bison walksEriksberg conducts special guided walking safaris for nature enthusiasts to see the bison close up. Seeing bison close up this way and, if you are in luck, near the sea is not possible anywhere else in the world.

Safari vehicleExperience the game reserve with the new Toyota Land Cruiser Game Viewer in a way that has not been possible before. The car has been customised to take visitors out in all weathers at any time of the day or night – from hot summer days to icy winter nights.

Art design by NatureEnjoy all the beauty that nature has created over a long period of time – from the ice age when the area was covered in 3km of ice, to the present day. The park has beautiful works of art designed by nature!
