Moosegarden Ostersund Reviews
Jul 20, 2007
Moose Garden is a tourism company located in Orrviken, just outside of Östersund. In 1997, they started by taking care of two abandoned moose calves, thereby entering their great "moose adventure".
In the summer of 1999, the first calf was born in the pasture and so was an idea. They started making exclusive paper from moose droppings, which drew the attention of the world. Moose paper is an exciting product, because they let their moose eat plants and branches from the forest. They hand produce their environmentally-friendly paper from the moose droppings, making it 100% recyclable.
In the fall of 1999 a dream came true. They acquired a well-kept farm with buildings from the 1800s. It was perfect for a larger pasture in a beautiful environment, accommodations, and a café, as well as having great opportunities for development. In addition to all that, they even acquired an observation tower for watching for the Storsjöodjuret (the Great Lake Monster). Orrviken has, through the years, had several close encounters with the Storsjöodjuret.
Their establishment is built on genuine experiences in a typical Jamtland culture and environment. Here you can get in close contact with their moose, look at the worlds only moose paper production, and last but not least live and eat well.
