|The Elk House|
1/2 day excursion
Beautifully located some 60 kilometres from Umeå and to the West of Bjurholm, former Swedish ski star Christer Johansson and his wife Ulla created the very first "Elk House" in Europe with tame elk! Elk House began in 1996 when the couple bought the first calves from Kolmården and Junsele zoos. Since which Elk House has grown into one of the regions premier tourist attractions.
Come and experience Elk House tour with an UmeGuide. Taste the elk cheese, enjoy the fabulous, roasted to perfection elk meat cuts. Learn more of these icons of the region and the contribution elk make. Ride an elk, stroke the calves and enjoy these magnificent creatures.
While we are there we can watch a slide show capturing the elegance and grace of the elk in its natural environment.
