Overview

The world's northernmost zoo, where you can experience the big predators of the arctic: Brown bear, lynx, wolf and wolverine. There's also moose, red deer, reindeer, musk ox and polar fox. During the summer we also have domesticated animals and birds, and attractions like zip lines, boulder park, barbeque areas and fishing spots. There's also a cafe, kiosk and gift shop. Adapted for the disabled. Polar Zoo is open all year.

We accidentally came across the park while on our Scandinavian trip. It was a great experience, we enjoyed it very much. The weather was great, but they closed quite early despite the long days
