Through conservation programs, the wolves are being saved from extinction and small packs live in enclosures inside the park. The Wolf Lodge was erected in the midst of one of these nature preserves. Naturally, wolves are untamed and wary of human contact but as outlined by the local experts, the animals in the park are used to people. So much so that they considered us a part of their natural environment, says a representative. During your visit, a guide will be with you to teach you all that there is to know about these sociable breed.

Other wildlife to see in Polar Park include bears, wolves, lynx, wolverines, foxes, deer, elk, reindeer, and musk. Preys and predators strive here in the backwoods and all the species are important in order to maintain the proper balance of the ecosystem.

At the Wolf Lodge, the location is ideal to see the Northern light (Aurora borealis). In fact, you can watch this dancing phenomenon through the roof of the building. Nature and wildlife photography led programs abound. Here, ‘Exclusive Photoguiding’ is directed at professional and serious photographers who want to capture some winning shots of the animals in the wild, as well as the innate beauty of the Norway’s landscape comprising wide-ranging forests and iced lakes.
