“That’s where he’ll stand. Forty-five meters to the very top and symbolizing Swedish Lapland in all its glory,” reads the official website for Stoorn, a Swedish project to build a giant wooden moose.
Called an “innovative tourist attraction,” the giant moose is set to become a center for commercial tourism and adventure activities, with a focus on forest and wildlife in the surrounding area. Stoorn, the giant moose, will be hollow—and home to a restaurant, exhibition venues, a concert hall, and modern conference facilities for businesses to promote themselves.
The giant moose’s location is atop the 510-meter Vithatten Mountain and offers visitors an expansive view of the mountain ranges, all the way to the sea.
