Situated among wild and breathtaking nature, Polar Zoo places major emphasis on animal welfare and the animals have large areas in order to make their situation in captivity as natural as possible. The zoo features species including brown bear, moose, reindeer, lynx, wolverine and polar fox, all of which are natural inhabitants north of the Arctic Circle. Our greatest attraction is the Wolf Camp, where visitors can have an up-close-and-personal encounter with the wolves inside the enclosure. Café. Tromsø Tourist Information Office

Autumn walks - colourful walks before darkness (01.10-30.11) Late autumn around Tromso is the best time to see how nature prepares for a long, dark winter. When most people prefer to stay around the wood-fired ovens, we offer you a chance to experience nature at its wildest. It can be a sunny day with flamboyant colours of birches or a stormy, greyish, scary landscape around you. In the event of early snowfall, the same trip is available using snowshoes.
