THE MOOSE IS THE NATIONAL ANIMAL OF SWEDEN. Watching a full grown bull with his majestic crown it is easy to understand why they are called the King of the forrest. The Swedish name is ‘älg’ and there is a frequent debate about whether it should be translated as moose or elk. The correct answer is both! It is called ‘moose’ in American English and ‘elk’ in British English.
Every year, in be beginning of March a wonderful wildlife event happens just 15 minutes walk from our Wilderness Cabins. It is called ‘the great moose migration’. Every year the Swedish moose walks the same path to get to their summer grazing pastures.
