Elgtun is a visiting center with tame moose
The 2021 season will again be a somewhat special year for us. In connection with the Covid-19 situation, Elgtun has chosen to remain closed in the summer of 2021.
This is not a desirable situation, but based on circumstances, this is absolutely necessary. As many have now realized, work is being done to open Elgtun again, but in a completely new place. We will update the progress of these plans via our channels in the future.
Our Moose are meanwhile being moved to Viltgården, which is also one of Nature Norway’s Attractions. Here we then have the pleasure of being able to offer an experience with our moose in the 2021 season.
Here you can book your visit on specified days and times or maybe even plan parts of the holiday in Viltgården’s fantastic micro house 🙂
Welcome – to a unique experience close to the Moose

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!
