Norway and Sweden contain an exciting array of big beasts, with the brown bear the undisputed King of the Forest.
The brown bear once had a dozens of euphemistic names, such as “forest grandfather” and “honey-eater”, as it was taboo to speak the true name of such a fearsome creature. Orsa Bjornpark in Dalarne, central Sweden, is Europe’s biggest bear park; and wild bear-watching tours are available.
Greenland’s shores contain (rare) polar bears, lemming, Arctic foxes and hares, reindeer and musk oxen. The Dovrefjell mountain area, the barrier between the southern and central regions in Norway. is also a home of the musk ox.
Anyone taking a boat trip will appreciate the abundant marine life, including millions of seals, 15 whale species, and walruses. The picture above is from Orsa Bearpark in Sweden.
