Suddenly, there is an elk in the pine forest
Magnificent, elegant, and majestic – and well camouflaged among the shrubs and tall pine trees. You are in a warm and comfortable coach, and can enjoy the stunning scenery without worrying about the weather.
In spring and autumn, you may be lucky enough to see the bull elk with its spectacular antlers. Norway's largest land mammal can weigh up to 800 kg and measure 2.2 m in mane height. The elk is not a heard animal, and is usually seen alone or in small family groups. Its habitat is the coniferous forest belt, where it feeds on grass, bark, and twigs all year round.
This is the area we visit to look for elk on our safari, and often we spot other animals too – such as large birds, foxes, and hares. Along the way, our guide shares stories and points out various signs that indicate the presence of elk. Halfway through the safari, we take a break, light a campfire, and serve a light meal based on local ingredients.

The dream behind Finnskogen Adventures
Imagine an early autumn morning deep inside Finnskogen. You emerge from your tent and feel the morning chill tickling your nose. The sun is rising over the horizon. You see misty cobwebs in the trees. There is frost on the ground and a thin layer of ice on the small forest tarns. The autumn colours glow in the sunlight. Imagine lighting a campfire and getting the coffee pot ready. The smell of the campfire. Flickering flames. The birds coming to life, and the sun shining. You stretch and feel the peace within. The joy of being alive, experiencing this, and being part of something bigger.
