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
