The moose – this king of the forest has become a symbol for Sweden, Swedishness and is somewhat of a national mascot. Yet there are still many of us who have never seen moose in the wild.

However, in Jämtland they are a common sight for mushroom and berry pickers, hikers and other outdoorsy people.

If you want to be sure of meeting one, seeing a real moose in its natural environment, join one of our game watching companies for a trip into the forest. You’ll learn more about this stately animal; imitating moose calls and mating calls gets them to show themselves, often at very close range.
