Whales, huskies, sea eagles, seals, bears, wolfs, reindeer and so much more. There are plenty of animals in the Tromsø region, and some you will meet in the wild, whereas some you can meet up close and personal.
Our huskies are some of the most popular animals to go meet in Tromsø. They’re always up for cuddles, takes you dog sledding and you can join husky walks surrounded by Northern Norwegian nature. Another animal you are very certain to see when visiting is reindeer. They often walk along the road so you should be extra careful when driving, especially during summer. You can get up close to the animals by visiting Sami experiences like reindeer feeding and reindeer sledding. If you want to meet other wild animals you should go to PolarPark, about a 2 hour drive from Tromsø. Meet the new bear cubs born in January 2020, Ulrik the muskox and his friends, wolfs, lynx, Arctic fox and more. And did you know that we have wild animals you can meet right in the heart of the city centre? The seals Bella, Mai San, Loffen and Lyra lives in the Arctic visitor centre Polaria. Joined by other sea animals from Polar regions, this is the perfect place to learn more about Arctic wildlife.
