The world’s most northern animal park, based in Troms, Norway, offers exclusive new ways of experiencing Norway’s most famous predators and, due to the size of the park, it is like encountering them in their natural habitat. A new attraction at the park, the WolfLodge, offers a rare chance to live among the predators. Based for one night in a cabin in one of the enclosures, you can see the wolves, and the wolves can see you. “I recommend looking at some pictures and reading more about it on our website, as it really is a spectacular experience and, as far as I know, not possible to experience anywhere else in the world,” says Heinz Strathmann, CEO at Polar Park.
“Another new attraction is the world’s largest zip line, transporting you above and across the enclosures of deer, wolves and a lovely landscape,” Strathmann continues. “Additionally, the Wolf Visit is highly recommended, where people are guided through the wolf enclosures and provided with the chance of meeting the wolves, experience a ‘wolf kiss’ and walking unprotected through the wolf area to establish contact with the animals.” Particularly stunning with the northern lights dancing across the sky, Polar Park hosts bears, lynx, wolverines and Arctic foxes as well as deers, moose, reindeer and muskox.
