Welcome to Elgtun! Close encounters of the third kind! Norway`s first park with tame moose. There is a big difference between an moose you can see in zoos and moose who have lived close to people and been hand fed since they were born. The difference lies primarily in the fact that our moose are safe for us. Just wait until you meet them yourself- It is pure magic!

Lovely place with an interesting museum nearby, they really let you get close to the moose. The animals are friendly and impressive and the area is beautiful. I would recommend exploring more of the Setesdal Valley while you're there and make a day of it.

This was the perfect winter activity, we had 2 excellent guides and all the mooses to ourselves as it was winter time. The mooses are very friendly and the guides knew the answer to all of our questions. I really recommand it, we loved it!

Dont be mistanken, this is NOT a park because it is just the moose to see but if that is what you want this is what you get. They have easy serving and drinks. Cost about 16€ to enter. A couple of hours is plenty...More

I was there with My 2 Kids 10 years and a friend. They told us all about the moose and we even met some of the elg. It was one of our best holidays. Do see for yourself!
