Explore the mighty moose
This 5 hours evening tour will take you to a forest area with a lot of moose. You will see traces of moose and you will learn about the animals and its way of life. Quite often we spot animals and are able to study them up close or with binoculars. However we cannot guarantee that we will see animals on every tour.
What we do on this tour:
We pick you up in the centre of Oslo around 16.00h. in the afternoon and drive for about 20 minutes before we do a short hike to a place in the forest where we gather around the fire. Here the guide will explain the tour of the day and introduce you to the moose and its natural habitat - the living forest. You will be served a cup of “bush tea” - tea made from local ingredients such as pine trees and spruce. Honey from Oslo Outdoor’s own beehives comes with it.
Afterwards we go for a hike on narrow trails and through the bush for about 2 hours. We walk in a slow pace where we make as little noise as possible. We will look for moose and traces of moose. We often spot them, but not always. So far we have seen moose on roughly 60% of our tours. With your binoculars you will see the animals up close if we spot them.
After the hike we gather around the fire again for a small traditional Norwegian meal, such as lefse with salmon, moose or reindeer. After the meal we walk back to the van for transport back to the centre of Oslo.
