Wildlife

Season: March - October

In the nature surrounding Oslo you can experience wildlife to an extent that few other capitals can match. In these forests you’ll find animals such as beaver, moose, deer, hare, wolf and fox, as well as capercaillie, black grouse, eagle and other big birds. We invite you to explore Oslo’s wildlife and their habitat. Learn more about the animals and the nature they depend upon.

On our wildlife tours we show the utmost respect for the animals and we expect our guests to do the same.

Explore the mighty moose

5 hours evening tour just outside Oslo where you learn to appreciate the living forest and its inhabitants, including the “King of the forest”, the moose. We know the best places to see these impressive animals in their natural environment. We provide binoculars.

Spring’s most beautiful adventure

From April until mid-May capercaillie and black grouse perform their spectacular mating ritual early in the morning hours, in the forests close to Oslo. Join us for a night in the wilderness and watch the big birds play as the sun rises. A genuin wilderness experience to remember.
