Where can I go to experience wildlife?

In almost all of our destinations we feature reindeer or huskies so there are always plentiful opportunities to see these animals across our trips.

For any family who would like to really get up close to a range of animals then we cannot recommend our Ranua trips enough. These feature the amazing Ranua Wildlife Park where families will be able to see over fifty species of animals including otters, snowy and great grey owls, wolves and lynx.

The parks most famous inhabitants are its polar bears and during some holidays our families get to accompany the guides as they feed these exceptional animals.

Another wonderful wildlife experience for families is our whale safari on our Sortland family trip. On this trip you will be taken to the island of Andøya which is said to be one of the best places in Northern Norway to spot a whale. A thrilling ride via RIB boat will take you across the water and hopefully you will be able to spot a whale or two. The species visible here can include minke whales, humpbacks, sperm whales, pilot whales and, on rare occasions, orca.

Lapland is also home to the more elusive moose or elk which can occasionally be seen. For a more dedicated hunt for these creatures, families may be interested in our Sörbyn trip where you will journey across the snow to seek out these large and very shy animals.

What you need to know

When looking for some of Lapland’s animals in their natural habitat, sightings of course can’t be guaranteed although our guides always know the best spots in which to seek them out. During any of these activities the journey is very much part of the experience and your guides will highlight any of flora, fauna or animal tracks as you go; always an educational experience.

The mode of transport if also very often a highlight of the activity; for example the whale safari in Sortland gives you the chance to enjoy a brilliantly exciting rib safari, taking in the beautiful island views of Northern Norway.

Similarly, the moose safari from Sörbyn Lodge will be either via snowmobile pulled sled or 4x4, both great ways to navigate the snow and you will also enjoy a warming campfire lunch as you wait in hope for a moose spotting.
