About Vildmarkshotellet and Kolmården

Vildmarkshotellet is located approx. 30 minutes by car from Norrköping City. The hotel is beautifully located by Bråviken’s water. What is unique about the hotel is that it is located at Kolmården Zoo, which is the largest zoo in the Nordics.

As the Nordic region’s largest zoo, conservation, research and education are our primary and most important tasks.

Of course, we will visit the park. We therefore ask you to bring comfortable clothes and shoes with you.


WISE covers the cost and books accommodation at Vildmarkshotellet.

(Note that it is not a guarantee that it will be the same way at the next WISE event)


All participants are responsible for booking their own trip to Norrköping from their hometown.

A shared bus will then transport all participants to and from the Norrköping travel center to Vildmarkshotellet. Don’t forget to indicate that you want a seat on the bus when you register for the WISE Welcome Meeting.

The bus departs from stop C5 at 10:45 at the Norrköping central station. Make sure to be in good time before the bus departs. Also make sure to have your QR code available, which you get sent to you when you register your participation for this event. We will scan the QR code before you get on the bus for transport to Vildmarkshotellet, so we know you’ve arrived.

The bus will stop at the same stop when you return on August 30. The bus departs from Vildmarkshotellet at 13:15 and expects to arrive at the Norrköping travel center at approximately 14:00.

If you would rather take your own car to Vildmarkshotellet, there are plenty of parking spaces outside the hotel.
