We stayed overnight at the wolf lodge. Stig is amazing and Heidi is the best chef hands down. I've read a few reviews here and appreciate if you don't have the experience we had that winter may not make it the best time, but for us, living in Australia, winter just made it that much better! Seeing the wolves up... More

We spent one night at the Wolf Lodge and how I wish we'd stayed another night! It was everything we dreamt it would be and our time with the wolves will an experience never to be forgotten, it was magic! The Lodge was super super comfy, our guide was absolutely amazing, very knowledgable and the Chef... such yummy meals. If... More

We visited Polar Park this January and we were pretty much disappointed. The bus from Tromso takes 3 hours to arrive (and 3 more to return), we arrived at 13:00h so we only had about 30 minutes of light there. We saw some mooses, muskoxs, wolves and a lynx. The staff told us that they didn't have arctic foxes at... More

We booked tickets that included the bus journey from Narvik and entry fee to the park. A total of £70 per person. The bus left Narvik at 12.15pm arriving at Polar Park at 1.30pm. At this time, the light was fading fast and we had about 15 minutes at the Park before it was dark. This was such an incredible... More

Polar Park is really very difficult to get to - We booked through Guide Gunnar to be driven to the park, as we couldn't practically find any other way to do it - It was expensive, but no more expensive than hiring a car would have been, and infinitely less stressful than driving in the horrible conditions, or worrying about...

This was the last leg of our Sweden-Norway trip and I could say this was one of the most memorable ones. We visited the wolves on their HUGE enclosure. These wolves aren't trained to behave like what people see on typical zoos that you get a meet and greet with animals or they do some performance or entertainment acts. You... More

We drove to the Polar park specifically for the wolf experience which was magical, the staff in my experience were very friendly, the safety of the wolves and of their visitors is taken very seriously by them, so long as you follow their instructions and are respectful and calm with the wolves you will have a wonderful experience. The only... More

Staff unfriendly and not very helpful. Turns out you have to call well in advance to ask to be picked up from the bus stop on the motorway (a good 3km walk otherwise) which we didn't know about until we actually arrived at the park. Initially they had agreed to dropping us back at the bus stop on our way... More

Traveled all the way from Africa to see Arctic animals in winter! What a great experience! We took a bus from Tromso and staff collected us from main road. Love seeing animals in a totally different environment for us, thick snow, falling snow, 1st early morning visitors so serenely quiet outing, to be watched by wolves (hearing their howls for...

We recently visited the Polar Park, in the Bardu Municipality. We took a three hour bus ride from Tromso starting at 6am specifically to visit the wolf pack at the park. It was totally worth it. The park employees are so nice and dedicated to the animals and they helped to make our visit to the wolf enclosure something we... More
