While we all know about the adorable polar bears of Norway, the country has much more to offer in terms of wildlife! Here, take a look…

1) Reindeers

Santa Claus may not be real but his favourite animal is! Found in Norway, these supremely adorable mammals are excellent swimmers and can even see ultraviolet light.

2) Arctic Fox

A small, round body with thick fur and a cute fluffy tail…no, we aren’t talking about a dog, but an Arctic fox. Natives of Norway, these foxes change the colour of their fur to suit the season…white in winter and brown in summers!

3) Polar Bears

Polar bears are cute. Period! But contrary to popular belief, their fur is not white. It is transparent with a hollow core that reflects light, giving it a whitish appearance. What’s more, they have exceptional olfactory senses, which means they may smell you before you see them!

4) White-Tailed Eagle

The largest bird of prey in Europe, white-tailed eagles are found all along Norway’s coast. With the largest wingspan among eagles, they are excellent divers and are often seen plunging into the icy waters to snap up their prey.

5) Harbour Seal

Colonies of seals can be seen along the entire coast and even in some fjords of Norway. A coastal species, these large gregarious mammals are often found lounging on the rocks, so we recommend being camera-ready!

Aren’t these polar animals simply adorable? And these are just a few! To meet them in their natural habitat, book a Norwegian Fjords and Arctic Discovery cruise and sail into the land of the midnight sun!
