The natural habitat and forested areas make the experience even more authentic.

Öster-Malma Elchpark

Located in the county of Södermanland, this park is one of the oldest elchparks in Sweden. It was founded in 1927 by the Moose Club, making this place truly special. Although the park is small, covering an area of 25 hectares, it still houses up to 13 moose. The journey through the park is unguided, allowing you to wander through the forest to observe the moose and their habits in their natural environment.

Laganland Moose Park

Last but not least, Laganland Moose Park. Situated in Småland, it features seven authentic forest areas where you can observe the wild and incredibly charming moose. The tour takes place on a guided carriage ride, where your own moose enthusiast will enlighten you about the animals and the wild forests they inhabit. During winter, you can try something truly unique called ”a moose forest walk on skis”. One of the highlights the park offers is the chance to ride a tractor, enabling you to feed these majestic moose an apple directly from your hand.

We highly recommend Laganland Moose Park as one of the best in Sweden. Visit their website at for more information on what they offer and book your next trip to Sweden today: https://laganland.se/de/elchpark/
