Stayed there with our kids. 7 and 5 years old. We really enjoyed it. We were able to see all of the animals they have. It’s strongly recommended to have the free guided tour. The girl guiding explains very important things to know a little...More

I'm going to start on the positive side: We were lucky enough to see all the animals without the guide. Mooses, deers, reindeers, lynx's, wolves, bears... Really cool to see them in "natural environment". But... On the negative side: The guide that feeds some animals,...More

Had a great walking hike through park. Walking area very nice but area where the animals area was tall weeds and hard to see some of the animals. Beautiful river you get to walk across.

Visited the Polar Park through an excursion booked with Fred Olsen during a cruise to the Norwegian Arctic. Very memorable experience walking through a 'Winter Wonderland' during heavy snow showers. Got to view most of the animals but, sadly, the wolves refused to play which,...More

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. I researched all...More
