  • Saltstraumen
What you can expect
The trip take place during the evening or night and are arranged on demand. The Mooses are quite shy and are easily scared back into the woods, but normally they are quite co-operative and allow us to get quite near. June, July and August are the prime months in which moose are seen practically every trip.

About the moose
The moose is called Elg in Norway, but the moose is not comparable with the american elk. The elk (cervus canadensis) , however, is an entirely different deer (much smaller). The moose is Europes largest land animal, also the largest member in the deer family. A fully grown bull are over 2 meters high at the shoulders and weighs up to 750 kg (1650 lb). Cows seldom weighs more than 470 kg (1035 lb).

About the trip
The trip is in no way strenuous. Normally we do not leave the vehicle (if we do; the moose will see thet we are humans, and it will run away). So everyone can join.

Group size
Maximum size of a group is 16. Moose safari for larger groups are also available, but must be booked on request.

An average trip will last 4 – 5 h. The trip take place during the evening. Early morning is also an an option.

The absolute best season for a moose safari in Norway is summer. June - August.
