  • The sole purpose of this visit was for the wolves. We were staying in Tromso, so was fully aware of the 3 hour bus ride there and then another 3 hours to get back. The whole day was a 9 hour adventure...  more »

  • We stayed here in March, we booked the tour that included a private transportation (bus) from Tromsø to the Park and back and paid 1600NOK each. There is also the option of starting from Tromsø and return to Narvik (on site we are all options). The driver was on time, we left at 9 and arrived at 11.45 at the Park, at 15 we left for Tromsø. The round trip is accompanied by a mini guide which explains facts about Arctic fishing and curiosities of the zones that you are going through. The Park is very nice in my opinion, there are lynxes, wolves, musk-deer from a few metres away. The reindeer actually do not even have the fence. Unfortunately we didn't see the bear because it was dormant, only to be told that the day before he was awake, so it's a little to good fortune. There is a bar inside the park with good prices (Norwegian standards ... a chocolate 250NOK) useful to warm up. Consider about 2.30 hours to visit.

  • We had the most amazing experience here! We saw all animals: the bears were super interactive with us and so were the wolves. One of the Eurasian Lynx was a proper show off and sat for loads of photos. I would say if you come here in the winter, give yourself plenty of time to go round the park (more than 2hrs) and take hiking boots. You need to be patient sometimes to see the animals, but that’s part of the fun and it’s even more rewarding when you spot one. It’s a beautiful thing that these animals are given so much space to roam - don’t be angry that you can’t see them straight away, be pleased that they are not cramped into tiny spaces! Once they came out to say hello, you could tell that the wolves were happy, they played with each other constantly and looked very fluffy. The howling was brilliant and very loud! The keepers obviously love their animals too. Great day out :)
  • Great place. We engaged with a pack of wolves. Unforgettable experience.
  • OMG the wolves were amazing. We didn't go in with them but we watched others go in. It's a bit expensive but we'll worth it to see wildlife in an almost natural habitat. Then as we were on our way back to the coach we heard the wolves howling. So moving. Highly recommended. 5 stars.
  • Came here a couple of years back during winter and saw: Lynxes, wolverines, mooses, wolves and several other creatures. Lovely place to get an experience of a lifetime, and to shoot a few photos!
  • Unfortunately the park was closed the date we visited as we were late. We managed to roam around in the outer area of the park, where no ticket was necessary. The site is build in a magnificent area up on the mountain, where temperature is freezing cold even in mid October. Very well organised theme park, specially made for children and not only. This is a unique opportunity to observe wild animals in their natural habitat. Highly recommended!!
