  • We are in Norrland, Sweden's northernmost region, where the Moose are seen by all the ' King of the forest '. However, have a close encounter with these animals in the wild is not recommended, because it can be very dangerous, both because you risk scaring or (especially in the case of children) to take them to be marginalized from their group. This is not to say that the elk are domesticated: throughout the region you can find several herds of elk, appreciated for their droppings (which can be used as those of elephant). Among all these centres, the Moose Garden is the only one that allows you to meet Moose, touch them, stroke them and feeding them. Although this is a less ' natural ' (given that the animals in question are not wild), I would like to point out that the Moose are extremely happy and live almost entirely like their brothers born in the forest. The Moose Garden however a place in the countryside, where elk have plenty of room and can roam freely. Very nice lifestyles, just eating, playing, making friends with each other and being caressed by tourists. Some guys who visited the park with they described as a circus, but as far as understand their point of view, it seemed to me not so dramatic. Aside from receiving all the care for their well being and come accustomed not to fear humans, the Moose of Moose Garden they live as if they were born in the forest. They have never known a cage. Are cared for with love, respect and according to a certain tradition. The whole project is totally sustainable, and following a few rules (which are made very clear from the outset) visitors can help keep this site alive and to spread love for elk in the world. Not to mention the wonderful memories that remain forever with those who visit Moose Garden. Visit a moose and an elk happy, is a unique experience that is impossible to forget.

  • Very nice tour and learned a lot about the moose. The guide tells a lot and is very passionate. He knows a lot about the animals and about Sweden. Is very helpful. Really a must!

  • There are a few stugas together in a graswei. We had 4 adults and a child of 6 the largest cottage rented. The Administration and transfer of keys went smoothly and cleanly. The cottage was well maintained and adapted to modern standards. Though it is worth noting that the curtains obscure bad and 1 was missing. In the summer (long light) is that tricky. The breakfast was reasonable and the supplementary bed linen paste there. Also the (book seperately) excursion to the Moose on this farm is a must. I found it worth the money!

  • The most amazing place where you get to meet moose up close - you can stroke and hug them! There are 2 daily tours which are funny and informative and given in Swedish and English. The owner and all the staff there are friendly and helpful. I was lucky enough to stay there for 5 days and loved every minute of my stay. The accommodation is comfortable with fantastic views to the front of mountains and lake and moose to the back. It is very peaceful and relaxing
  • Very nice Tour with cute elks and lively explanations.
  • One of my favorite places to visit!
  • Worth it. Only 120SEK for adults, and they gave a nice talk (in a bunch of languages) and you get to see moose up close (in the pen), patting and feeding them. Also got coffee and biscuits included
  • Funny for the kids and they got sometimes a garage sale.
