We had a pleasant day at the park, but like many others I feel it was a bit too expensive for what you get. The tour was shorter than I expected (40-45 min) and you are sitting still the entire time which makes it inconvenient...More

Man åker runt bland älgarna och får klappa dem och se dem på riktigt nära håll. Super 👌👌 Perfect visit! You have the opportunity to pat the mosses and get really close to them. A really nice visit, would recommend it!
