Nothing beats getting right up close to an elk. Visit Europe's first elk farm with tame elks and be fascinated by the King of the Forest in a way never before possible!

The opportunity to touch the elks it what makes the experience at Älgens Hus unique, but the entire visit is an exciting adventure, regardless of age. How about a mysterious walk through an exciting maze?
When you enter the museum, your guide will teach you everything there is to know about the elks. Here you will find rock carvings, stuffed animals and a collection of giant horns. Adjacent to the museum there is a popular slideshow that traces the elk's life by the year's four seasons.
At Älgens Hus the owners milk the elks. The cheese produced from the milk is often included in the restaurant's gamey flavored menu.
