Welcome to Boo Egendom
Boo Fideikommiss (fee tail) is located halfway between the Swedish cities of Örebro and Norrköping. The estate is one of the largest privately owned land properties in Sweden and consists of more than 37,000 acres of land and approximately 2,500 acres of streams and lakes.
Boo estate originally derived from a donation to the Scottish general Alexander Leslie by the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus in 1624. This donation was a reward for the achievements of the general during the Thirty Years’ War. Later on, the estate was transformed into a fee tail. The current tenant in tail is Carl-Hugo Hamilton and the estate in tail is presently being leased to a production company, Boo Egendom AB. This company is a family business and is run by both Carl-Hugo Hamilton and his son Carl-Fredrik Hamilton.
At Boo estate the main activities include active forestry and farming, as well as hunting and fishing management. The forests cover approximately 29,000 acres of productive woodland and the arable land consists of no less than 2,000 acres. Hunting is a significant activity and is focused primarily on fallow deer. It is performed in several different ways, such as blind hunting, deer stalking (still hunting) and drive hunting. A rich array of animal life thrives within the borders of the estate. This includes elk, red deer, fallow deer and wild boar, among others.
The many rivers and lakes provide a good supply of fish like pike, perch and pike perch. Some lakes hold game fish, and there are also plenty of crayfish.

We warmly welcome you to Boo Egendom!
Close to Nature
At Boo, nature is always nearby. The impressive fallow deer often come close to the gardens and houses, and there is no need to travel far to see elk, wild boar or red deer. At certain times of the year, the mighty fallow deer bucks gather in groups, which are called “gentlemen clubs”. It is an unforgettable experience to watch these powerful animals with their impressive antlers as they gather to rest in the rolling landscape.
The woods are full of waterways and small rippling rivers and streams, which find their way through nature while following the natural altitudes of the landscape. At the lakeside of Lake Avern, there are many inviting places to rest and enjoy the beautiful view of this nine kilometre-long lake.
There are also plenty of forest-dwelling birds in the area of Boo estate. During the crisp days between winter and spring, it’s possible to spot the Black Grouse or the Capercaillie, perched on the treetops. The many rivers and waters provide a rich environment for bird life, including Whooper swan, crane, heron and Golden Eagle, as well as more common varieties like duck and teal.
Through effective yet respectful forest management, some parts of the woodland have developed into beautiful nature areas, which are suitable for recreation. Spending time here is a relaxing and purifying experience for both body and soul.
Several of the cottages available for short term rental have scenic views of the woods and lakes. There is a great demand for these houses all year round, since staying and hiking is popular in the area.
