“Great Fun...both the Elg and the Owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

This was a great experience. You get real close to real live moose(s) and learn a lot about them, thanks to the owner, who is a lot of entertainment all on his own. The moose are well cared for and look much different from the ones we've encountered in the New Hampshire woods back in the USA. There were a lot of young children and they all loved it. Plus, there's a neat gift shop and the obligatory café, which is handy when you want a cup of coffee or something to eat.

“FANTASTIC!”

An amazing experience for both kids and adults to see these beautiful animals. Our guide and owner of the park was very friendly and informative. Obviously very passionate about his babies! Great to be able to touch them. Wonderful!

“up close and personal with moose”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

This park offers a close expereince with moose. We were able to touch antlers and see a mother and baby. It was great to experince some wildlife , after spending much time in Swedish cities. The moose man loves these great animals and his enthusiasm makes this a great event. It can be difficult to get to Heby, especially without a car.
