John X Safaris had the privilege of having Bertil Friman hunt with us this past April. After Bertil’s safari we had kept in contact and later were invited to join him with a group of friends on their annual Moose hunt to Norway.
Having left Port Elizabeth we flew to Johannesburg and onto Amsterdam, before arriving in Gothenburg, Sweden. Upon arrival we were met by our host Bertil who informed us; “Tonight its Moose and Martini’s for dinner with a desert of double espresso and Aqvavit to wash it all down!” OK! Welcome to Sweden!
Our first few days were spent trying to decide if we had been invited on a Moose hunt or an eating vacation? We enjoyed our first Swedish lunch down on the docks in Gothenburg at the famous Michelin Guide Sjomagasinet restaurant with world-famous chef Laif Mannerstrom. Laif’s son Sebastian prepared our lunch and truly impressed us with the exceptional quality of seafood.
