Take a Moose-Safari
Exploring the boreal forest by foot and boat is the best way to find moose, but you can also take a drive through prime moose habitat with our moose driving routes. Ranging from 1-2 hours, these driving routes will give you an opportunity to find our favorite animal in the wild. Even if you don’t see a moose, you’ll enjoy scenery that cannot be beat!
