Amazing naturepark Mar 28, 2012
The Langedrag Nature Park is a must if you're travelling through this area for some reason. It's placed in the middle of nowhere, but a lot of tourist still find the way.

It's possible to spend the night here and I highly recommend it for people with children. It's also a must for anyone who likes animals. Especially Norwegian wolves, lynx, deer, reindeer, arctic foxes, goats, moose among many others.

They started building the nature park in 1978 and has been running since and if you're there you'll probably meet a sweet lady named Tuva. She's the heart and soul of this place and lives for the animals in her care. Admission cost is around 40$ for adults. You have to pay a little extra for a trip around the park where you'll see the feeding of the animals, but you'll be able to feed, touch and meet the reindeer, arctic foxes and moose. You'll also get an introduction to the wolves and lynx seeing them outside the fence. For a bit more (around 150$) you'll get an hour with the wolves and about 30 minutes with the lynx inside their nature habitat. That means you could be, depending on how safe the wolves feel, about 1-5 meters away from the wolves and the lynx will be as close as you want, just don't touch them. They are still wild animals and are not quite happy with humans touching them.

This trip is amazing and if you can afford it on your travel budget, do it! You'll probably never get closer to a wild wolf without a glass or fence between you. :D

There is also horses to ride, dogsled riding and many other activities. Many schools uses this place for a week long outing to get the kids familiar with wildlife. Look at their web page for info. For a up close and personal encounter with the wolves and/or lynx you should, if possible, order this in advance.
