You can now experience the thrill of a traditional moose hunt with hunting dogs in some fantastic districts north of the Polar Circle. The terrain is typical of northern Scandinavia with birch and pine forests and areas of open heather.
For a group of 2 -4 hunters the hunt will be carried out in the following manner; 1 -2 of the hunters will go out with their own dog handlers while the remaining hunter will sit at a “pass”. A number of different breeds of dogs are used: the Karelian Bear Dog, Norwegian Elk Hound and West Siberian Laika, all three breeds are incredibly skilled driving dogs, and are a big part of this very special form of hunting that can only be experienced in very few places. A third form of hunting is often used during the rutting season. You guide will attempt to “call-up” the moose and it is fascinating to experience how close you can call the moose to you. During the hunt participants will thus alternate between walking with the dogs and sitting at a “pass”.
This means that even if you are not in peak physical shape, you will still be able to take full advantage of the hunt. We are in no doubt about the fact that combing walking with dogs and lying in wait in the right places will bring you into contact with as many moose as possible in the hunting district.
And remember you will not be participating in a large Swedish hunting party, but in an exclusive hunt only for our guests - eg. in a group of 4 hunters.
