Going on a Moose Safari in Northern Norway is an exciting and memorable adventure. You will get glimpses of friendly moose, the largest land animals in Europe. Known in Norway as the elg, the moose weighs over 1,600 pounds and can stand over 2 meters high.
What makes Moose Safari special over competing tours is its ability to provide close views of wilderness animals. The recommended minimum age is six years old for this experience. It's an excellent opportunity to take pictures of wildlife in its natural environment. Transportation is by car or a small bus about 40 kilometers from and to Downtown Bodo, where guests will be picked up and returned.
Although Bodo is a small town with a population of about 40,000, it's still one of the largest towns in North Norway. The windy town, located north of the Arctic Circle, has a subpolar oceanic climate.
The trip includes a visit to Saltstraumen, which is where you'll see the world's strongest tidal currents. You'll get a chance to walk down a bridge and gaze at amazing whirlpools driven by astonishing natural forces. Saltstraumen gets its name from the district of Norway called Salten, which includes Bodo, while the term "straum" means stream. If you're curious about history you may want to ask about the 10,000-year-old hunter settlement near the area.
Like a hiking adventure, you should bring a small bag with food and drinks and wear appropriate clothing based on the weather. Be aware that meeting times are fixed and that the best time to enjoy a Moose Safari is early morning or at night. Trips can last from four to six hours. The typical group size is 2 to 10 people but the tours can accommodate up to 15 people accompanied by a guide.
Booking a Single Day Tour is the way to go if you don't plan on spending the night in Bodo. You'll get to see beautiful moose who are usually shy about being seen by humans, yet will allow you to get close enough to take photos. We will use our experience to take you to the sites where you have the best chance of seeing these animals.
