Polar Park - Arctic Wildlife Centre

The world’s northernmost animal park that makes for a fascinating day trip from Tromsø

The world’s northernmost animal park, the Polar Park in Bardu, nearby Tromsø, is home to many of Norway’s predatory animals, including bears, wolves, lynx, wolverines and foxes. The park also houses animals on the other end of the food chain, including deer, elk, reindeer and musk ox.

Stretching over 571 km2 (114 acres) of wild nature in the Salangsdalen valley, the park puts great emphasis on animal welfare, with all animals afforded large roaming areas to simulate as natural an environment as possible.

The park is large and can be difficult to see everything in a short time, so visitors should plan on making this a full day trip. Guided tours (best if booked in advance) are also available in which visitors can venture into the enclosurse and even participate in feeding selected animals.
