STF Nordens Ark
Unique experience near animals and nature
About the accommodationAt the venerable Åby Manor in the middle of beautiful Bohuslän you will find Nordens Ark. You will stay in a unique environment close to nature and experiences while at the same time supporting our work to protect endangered animals and biodiversity.
In order to create the requisite conditions for this the work includes breeding and rearing endangered species as well as releasing them into nature. The preservation projects are the backbone of the foundation’s activities. We currently have around 60 species and breeds from snow leopard and Siberian tiger to white stork and red-crowned crane. When you stay with us you have the opportunity to see and learn more about these fascinating species. For those who make a reservation via STF we also offer free entrance.
You can stay comfortably at our hotel or be adventurous in one of the cabins in Ekoparken. Our location by the Åby fiord also offers Bohuslän’s rich selection of culture and nature around the corner. Not far from here there are salty swimming opportunities from rocks, picturesque fishing villages, lovely bike trails, museums, restaurants and much more. There are plenty of hiking trails both short and longer ones and we are on one of the stages of signature trail Bohuslän.
When you stay with us you also support our work and our vision for a world with viable populations of animals and plants in functioning ecosystems. Thank you for your support and welcome to Nordens Ark!
