Moose farm Älgens Hus in the Umeå region

Älgens Hus (The Moose Farm), is Europe's first elk park with tame elks. Both adults and kids are fascinated by the King of the Forest. Meeting the huge elks can be a surreal and incredible experience. Being allowed to pat the elks is a unique experience, and is only possible, since the elks are tame. The whole area is full of exciting adventures for anyone regardless of age. A popular souvenir from the Älgens Hus/ Moose Farm, is the cheese made of Moose milk.
