No trip to Northern New England would be complete without a sighting of our majestic moose! And no one knows where to find them better than the guides at Gorham Moose Tours. With a 95% success rate, riders are likely to spot an average of eight moose per tour, which last three hours. Tours are led in a 14-passenger air-conditioned bus, which will take you to all of these magnificent animals' favorite spots!
Even if you've seen moose before, each sighting can bring you something new. Maybe it's because of their size: an adult male moose—called a bull—can stand six to seven feet tall at the shoulders and weigh between 800 to 1,500 pounds. Adult females also weigh between 600-800 pounds. Or maybe it's how well they blend into their surroundings, their dark brown bodies barely visible against bark as they search for dinner in a bog.
Whatever it is, there's something magical about seeing a moose, and the odds of Gorham Moose Tours give you a great chance at spotting more than one.
These fully-guided tours also include commentary on northern New Hampshire's rich natural resources and outdoor heritage from your guide. With the driving left to someone else, you'll have plenty of time to peer out the window and take pictures over the course of your peaceful evening. As dusk settles into the North Woods, look for osprey and soaring eagles on their final flight of the night as they cross the sunset.
Tours depart from the Gorham Information Booth. This is located on the Town Common off Route 16. They run from late May through September: tickets are $25 for adults, $15 for children aged 5-12 and $5 for family members 4 and under.
