Moose safari - Meet the Swedish National Symbol in the wildDate: Saturday 1 jul 2017 - Friday 29 Sep 2017 Show map
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.
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.
During the safari a stop will be made at one of the many lakes in the Nature Reserve Malingsbo-Kloten, 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.
The tour includes: A 5-hour guided moose safari, a hike in a very moose rich area, a wilderness picnic with moose meat wraps mixed with vegetables and berries from the local forest, mineral water from the local brewery, local fruit, tea or coffee, a minibus tour in the moose forest, a one-night in a double room, sheets, towels and breakfast (with home-made bread and cereal).
The safari is certified Nature's Best's arrangement.

Moose guarantee: All participants on the safaris have seen moose during the 14 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. In the case that no moose are seen on the moose tours lead by main guide Mikael Nilsson, a new tour will be offered. The guarantee is not valid for other service (ie. food and accommodation) that are included in the safari. The moose guarantee is only valid on tours during the high season.
