STF Nordens Ark

More about STF Nordens Ark

In the middle of the beautiful nature of Bohuslän with its rich offerings of experiences you will find Åby manor and Nordens Ark. Åby manor is one of Bohuslän’s oldest farms with a long and fascinating history. Stone Age graves and rock carvings testify to humans having lived here for thousands of years. This place is now home to Nordens Ark, a non-profit foundation that works to protect endangered animals and biodiversity and provide inspiration for a life-long commitment to nature.

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!
