Welcome to Svartisen Moose!

About us

At Svartisen Moose we have among the tamest moose in the world. Here you will get face to face with the biggest land living animal of Europa. If you dare you might even try to kiss it! Legends claim that those who kiss a moose become irresistible.

We have different ways for you to meet our moose. You can buy tickets to go on your own moose safari. You will be able to see them and to take pictures of them, but you will not get so close that you can feed them. You can also buy a ticket for our guided tour to the moose. Here you will get close to the moose. Through the fence you will have the chance to feed them, give them a hug, a kiss or take a selfie.

Included in our guided tour you will get information about the moose generally and historically as well as information about our moose. This summer you will be able to meet Arnljot and Wilma. They are well-behaved animals that will even let you kiss or hug them in trade for something good to eat!

Svartisen Moose is situated by the glacier “Engebreen”, which is the glacier in Europa that is closest to reach out into the ocean.
