Wildlife and Nature of Norway


This country sometimes features 24-hour sun, and the Aurora Borealis. Learn more about the wildlife and other unique natural elements of Norway.

Unique Ecology


Norway is relatively unique within Europe due to its variety of different ecological environments. These habitats provide homes to different wildlife, vegetation and geographical elements from region to region. They also allow for stunning and changing landscapes.

Whales


As for animals that call this country home, the sperm whale does reside in Norwegian waters. Travelers to this country can even observe these majestic creatures in their natural habitat by taking a whale safari. Watch the whales as they swim and dive through the waters of this Scandinavian country.

Eagles


Another tour visitors may take is a white tailed eagle safari. Europe’s largest population of these distinctive birds is found in Norway, and tourists should take advantage of this by viewing these birds of prey at home.

Reindeer


The reindeer is also native to Norway, and one of the world’s larger populations of this animal resides here.

Changing Seasons


The entire country features a vast difference in the length of daylight between winter and summer, but that is even more prevalent in the northern parts of the country found above the Arctic Circle. In winter, that region sees almost no daylight. In comparison, summer features the midnight sun, meaning the sun is visible 24 hours a day.

Aurora Borealis


Norwegian skies are sometimes a colorful place as the country can see the aurora borealis or northern lights. The lights are seen mostly between late fall and early spring, and to view the most vivid colors visitors should avoid the full moon.
