Welcome to Lille Vildmose

The large area of 7.600 hectares is a real Danish wilderness with magnificent and unspoilt nature and a unique wildlife – a wealth of nature that many to not know exists in Denmark.

In the middle of Lille Vildmose, you will find the visitor center, Lille Vildmosecentret. Start your visit here and let the helpful staff guide you to the best places to go in the large area. You can also purchase an entrance ticket to the visitor center and get access to our large and wild experience universe with i.a. cinema (movies in English and German), exhibition, wild boars, and a playground.

It is free to visit the area and it can be done all day all year. If you are lucky, you can experience the wild animals. It is also possible to take a guided tour with one of the guides, who knows the bog, the stories, and the best places to experience the wild animals and plants. ​

How to

Whether you come by car, by bike, by foot or swimming – here is how to find us.

Lille vildmose – a world of wonders

In the northern part of Jutland – 30 km (20 miles) to the south east of Aalborg lies Lille Vildmose a raised bog of about 76 km2 ​(50 square miles).
In Lille Vildmose you will find a variety of animals such as moose, deer, foxes and a lot of interesting birds – i.e. eagles, cranes, geese, hawks and swans. Also the flora of the bog is very interesting.

The area used to be a production area where peat was dug. Now the area is protected, but you are free to go around in the area by car, or riding your own bike – you may even walk. In the area you will find towers for watching and wooden paths to enter the wet peatland.

Do not walk into the peatland – it is wet and very deep (up til 90 % is water).

Lille Vildmose Centre – the natural starting point

In order to find your way around you might visit Lille Vildmose Centre. ​The centre in an exhibition where you can learn about the bog, the animals and the evolution of the bog. There is a cinema where films about the animals and the bog will be shown on your demand. Several of the films are in English and German.

In weekends and holidays the peat train will take you to the newly established Birkesø and the guide will give you information of what you see.​

The area called ‘The Wild Area’ is a newly established area where you can have so called ‘hands-on’ experiences. You will also find an enclosure with wild boars.​

The cantre has a small café with hot and cold drinks and a bite to eat. Outside the café there is a nice playground for the children.

What our guests say

”We were on a trip in Lille Vildmose today. A bus tour with guide to Portlandmosen and Høstemark Skov. An absolutely fantastic trip and with a very, very good guide who were appreciated by us all. He told about the moose – really good idea. We had lunch and later in the afternoon coffee in Café Soldug. Incredibly sweet and knowledgeable staff, but the guide – he was simply so amazing. The trip is highly recommended. We are delighted that the moose are coming to Vildmosen. Greetings Slægts- og Lokalhistorisk Forening, Frederikshavn og Gymnastikforeningen Blæksprutten.”

What our guests say

I spent a day with my grandchildren at Lille Vildmose Centret. We did not know much about the place. It was so exciting and fascinating for all ages, (4, 8, 11, 61 years) that we came again two days later. We will definitely be back next year.”
