WILD MOOSE SAFARI

Meet the mighty king of the forest

Meet the King of the forest, the mighty Moose! The Bardufoss region has a big population of wild moose. These magnificent animals live in the deep arctic forests. Your adventure start in Basecamp Snowman in Målselv Mountain Village or at Rundhaug Gjestegård.

This is an extraordinary adventure, not to be missed! Join us at a Wild Moose Safari, aiming to observe the largest land animal in Europe, the mighty Moose! The Bardufoss area has a big population of wild Moose. These magnificent animals’ lives free in the deep Arctic forest. A fully grown Moose bull is over 2 meters high at the shoulders and weighs up to 750 kg (1650 lb). The adventure starts at Basecamp Snowman with 20 minutes pre-info in our “Moose Room” to learn about the amazing Moose, the humans and the Moose, the local hunting culture, the secrets on how to track and find a moose, etc. Also, you can take a photo at the “Moose Selfie Spot”.

After about half an hour we are departing by bus or car, at a safari through the forest in search of Moose and other wildlife. We aim to observe the animals from a respectful distance from the van, and whenever we get the chance, we step out to get a bit closer and to increase the chances for better photos. The Moose are shy animals, we don’t feed them and they don’t seem to get used to people. We aim to find them in their natural habitat. And most of the time we do! After the trip you will get a two course local lunch with coffee/ tea – and not to forget a Moose Certificate! Level of difficulty is easy.
