Moose Safari!

Moose is loose! There is a good chance of spotting an moose on our safari tour in Rauland. Enjoy and see the "king of the forest". 

The moose is the forest's biggest animal with a shoulder height of up to 2.3 meters. The bull moose can be 2.5 to 3.2 meters long, while the others are slightly smaller. In Rauland / Øyfjell area you can see the moose, deers and beavers, but in some areas, especially the moose is present. It is not uncommon to encounter 6-7 moose during a safari-tour. 

The moose walks around alone, and is particularly active at dawn and dusk. A trip is therefore recommended in the evenings, and during our two-hour tour, you will certainly be able to see moose up close.
