Is the moose really tame?
This is something a lot of our guests keep asking us. The natural fear of wild moose is normal, and a female moose with a calf can act very threatening if stumbled upon in the wild.
But yes, our moose are born right here in the park and has been accustomed to humans from day one, so they are docile. But we must never forget that these are large animals with their natural instincts intact. This is why we always keep to our number one commandment; This park is on the moose premises and all contact must be supervised by one of our guides.
TAME MOOSE CAN TEACH US A LOT - ABOUT MOOSE
The purpose and goal of Elgtun is to be a center of expertise about moose. We have acquired a lot of knowledge throughout the years and this is what we would like to mediate to our visiting guests so that everyone can learn more about these amazing animals.
Our offer, that involves the audience being able to both pet and feed the moose, is an unique opportunity to experience the king of the forrest up close and PERSONAL. You are in for a treat!
