Welcome to the Large Carnivore Centre!
The Large Carnivore Centre "De 5 Stora" ("The big five") is an information centre about the five large carnivores in Sweden; bear, wolf, lynx, wolverine and human. We cooperate with researchers, authorities and organisations to create an comprehensive picture of the carnivore issue.
The Large Carnivore Centre is situated in the middle of Sweden, next to the zoo "Järvzoo" in the village Järvsö. Here you find an interactive exhibition where you can learn about the large carnivores using all your senses.
We offer guided tours, courses, lectures and seminars on different levels and with different themes. The centre has also a shooting simulator, which suites both experienced hunters and people who have never tried a gun before.
Our facilities are popular among conference groups, we offer conference rooms for up to 100 persons in a unique atmosphere.
