Safari in Virum Moose Park

Safari in Virum Moose Park<br />

Meet the King of the Forest

The winding road through the forests outside Tuna leads to Virum Moose Park, a place where every visit is something out of the ordinary for children and adults.

Kjell and Helene Svensson’s beautiful farm in Virum differs from most other Swedish farms. Instead of cows, horses, pigs and other farm animals, you are met by 9 moose and 28 fallow deer in the grounds. Kjell and Helene have run their moose park just outside Tuna for more than ten years, a journey that started in 2007 with four moose and some ten fallow deer. The park’s legend and celebrity, the bull Harald, a whole 12 years old, is still part of the growing family, which consists of two beautiful moose heifers and several magnificent bulls who despite their size are incredibly calm and friendly when meeting visitors. 

In their natural environment, the moose live, play and enjoy being together, which can be seen on one of the many safari tours that run through the enclosure in the summer half of the year. A unique moose experience on which you can see the moose play together, go for a dip in the dam and munch on the goodies they are offered.

On a tour, you can meet and take part in the feeding of Virum’s moose. Potato slices, bits of apple and sugar beets will attract the moose even closer. The 500 kilo moose carefully eat from the hands of children and adults on the safari tour. Those who are brave can put a piece in their mouths and get a real moose kiss!
