Sweden 9 August: Östersund - Rätansbyn
Today was moose day! We finally saw seven! So this is a moose special.
After leaving from the city hall in Östersund, we had a small ceremony at the Moose Garden in Orrviken.
The owner welcomed us and gave us a guided tour. They have four small ones, and three grown-up moose there.
We even tasted some moose milk, a really special drink.
We were feeding the small ones!
"Helge", a big moose.
The moose are extremely fast - they can run up to 70 kilometres per hour! Only when you get close to them, do you realise how big they actually are. A big bull can weigh over 800 kilos!
If you ever come to Orrviken, pay a visit to the Moose Garden!
After this nice meeting, we continued on southwards. Many people asked about the Run; the Swedish people are really friendly. Every few kilometres a car stopped and the people took a picture!

In the evening we reached Rätansbyn, today's goal.
