Moose safari in Sweden - Meet the Swedish National Symbol in the wild
Moose safari - A magnificent show. Imagine the splash of water when a massive 650 kg bull moose jumps into the small lake right in front of us.
We see many wild moose on each safari and the safari has a moose guarantee
All participants on the safaris have seen moose during the 15 years the safari has been arranged, and the safari has a moose guarantee. On the worst safari tour, we saw 2 moose. On the best safari tour, we watched 34 moose.
Join Sweden's most spectacular moose safari
On foot, we hike in pathless terrain through one of the most heavily moose-populated wilderness areas on earth.
The moose are nocturnal and rest during the day. At dusk, the moose start to move from the deepest forests under the protection of dark. Bewitching shadows are cat by tall pine trees as we hike through the forest: up over high hills and down through low valleys. In twilight, mist the Swedish national symbol strides majestically through its wild environment. The moose come to the small lake to drink or to swim to the other side. We will be there watching the giant animals.
During the safari a stop will be made at one of the many lakes in the Nature Reserve, were a wilderness picnic will be served. To the picnic we listen to an experienced and knowledgeable moose guide who let us know about the moose and many other wild animals in the forest.
When the moose hike starts everyone has to be absolutely silent. Then we only communicate with sign language (a necessary condition if we are to see the shy and majestic animals).
The hike is not physically demanding. We hike very carefully and with as little noise as possible during the 1-1.5 hour hike. The safaris finish with a minibus tour, in which we visit other favorite spots of the moose.
We have a lot of experience in moose watching and we always see several moose on each safari. On Nordic Discovery's worst safari (during 15 years of moose safari arrangements), 2 moose were watched. On the best safari, 34 moose were seen (during the safari season from mid -May to the end of September).
