In 2014 our state of the art Carnivore Center opened, with interactive learning about the four major Norwegian predators; the bear, the wolf, the wolverine and the Eurasian lynx.

If I´m only going to visit one attraction this summer, why should it be Bjørneparken?
Bjørneparken is fun and exciting, and one of the largest parks in Norway. We are constantly working to make the park even better for our main group of visitors – families with children. We do this through our feeding schedules, development with new animals and activities involving children.
For us it is about passion and respect – not only for the wonderful animals, but also for the people who choose to visit us. ☺
Why is it called Bjørneparken when you have so much else?
We use the name Bjørneparken because of our lovely bears and due to the fact that we have a number of other animals in the park, and more to come. But the bears will probably always remain closest to our hearts.
Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in Norwegian zoos. However, we have a day care for dogs in a shaded area outside the park. You can borrow a key for the dog cages in the arrivals hall for a deposit.
