Wild moose safari

Destination Snowman

This tour is conducted by Destination Snowman. This is an extraordinary adventure, not to be missed! Join us at a Wild Moose Safari, aiming to observe the largest land animal in Europe, the mighty Moose!
Experience magical Målselv, only two hours by bus from Tromsø. The nature is absolutely outstanding; the climate is normally clear and cold with optimal conditions for Northern Light and snow – here you can boost your chances to see the Aurora!

A fully grown Moose bull is over 2 meters high at the shoulders and weighs up to 750 kg (1650 lb). Cows seldom weigh more than 470 kg (1035 lb). The magnificent Norwegian Moose lives free in the deep Arctic forest. The Moose are shy animals, we don't feed them and they don't seem to get used to people. We aim to find them in their natural habitat. And most of the time we do!
The adventure starts at Basecamp Snowman with 20 minutes pre-info in “The Moose Room” to learn about the amazing Moose, the human and the Moose, the local hunting culture, the secrets on how to track and find moose, etc. Also - you will meet the very special Norwegian Moose - hunting dog live; her name is Laika.
Also you can take a photo of yourself and the Moose at our “Moose Selfie Spot”.
After about half an hour we are departing for a safari by bus/ car, driving through the forest in search of Moose and other wildlife. We aim to observe the animals from a respectful distance from the van, and whenever we get the chance, we step out to get a bit closer and to increase the chances for better photos. The Moose are shy animals, we don't feed them and they don't seem to get used to people. We aim to find them in their natural habitat. And most of the time we do!
After the trip you will get a nice local lunch (Soup) with coffee/ tea - and not to forget the Moose Certificate!
