About
The houses at Langedrag are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. They look like fairytale castles, 1000 metres above sea level with a breathtaking view over mountains and lakes. Eva and Edvin K. Thorson started building the farm in 1978. They wanted to realise their dream of a farm where visitors could experience nature and animals at a closer range than anywhere else. ‘In awe of life’ is the motto at Langedrag. In the Nature Park you can find animals like reindeer, mouflon sheep, mountain fox, horses, goats, wild boars and lynxes. Few other places in the world would let you enter the wolf enclosure, like you can at Langedrag. Every Thursday and Friday in summer you can accompany us on a trip to our summer farm in the mountains. At the farm we make crisp bread on traditional hot plates and tell the stories of the area and its people.

This was the highlight of our 12 day trip to Norway. We had a private tour with a guide and that was a great way to learn more about the animals and we were able to interact and even feed them. Our guide, Marthe, aside from speaking very good English, was very knowledgeable and had a passion for all of the animals in the park. Through Marthe, we were able to interact with moose, reindeer, wild pigs, and artic foxes.

We opted to additionally take a private tour of the wolf and lynx enclosures. It was a lifetime memory to get very close to the animals. Our guide, Tuva, made us feel safe while the animals were only a few feet away from us.

What a day!! Our boys got to be «zookeepers for a day” and they had an amazing time! We loved every second of our visit. A perfect day for both parents and kids. The Highland cow calf’s were soooo cute. All the “fjords” amazing, wolf, moose and goats. What an amazing place!

We loved the animals! You have an amazing view and the moose were as cute as a buttom. Yet my little sister with downsyndrome who turned just 16 had to pay full aldult price, which meant we paid 126,45 in total for 4 persons. Which was kind of worth it if we had the same experience as the Norwegan people. Everything was in Norwegian, which is understandeble, but they get discount and a lot more information. In English was only a fith of the information... Which is kind of disapointing, because a third of our group could not understand Norwegian. A tip is to hire a student during the summers to translate to english, because they did not like to translate and they were not that good at it. Like the moose they called it in English a elge as well as in Norwegain, which is meant to be a moose. Also if you want to ride the horses, be with the wolves, be with the lyns or something then you have to pay like 50 euro per person extra. Besides these animals you just have the goats, pigs, horses, cows, rabbits and birds you have at any farm which is in Holland free of charge.... So yeah we had a wonderful day! And it is a recommdable place, but it is kind of expensive and they can improve costumer sattisfaction by better translations.

Ticked ordering system had to be done using the web, and did not work. We were allowed to buy tickets inside from a not too-friendly or helpful young man, but no information about that possibility outside. We almost turned around due to the problems. He did not offer information map. The seas for the wildlife are not marked very well. There are signs to where to go, but you don’t know if this fence belongs to these or those animals. Better signs and information are recommended! One very positive surprise was fenced in pen areas where you could leave your dog, one for each dogs - I left both mine in one pen. Big, shady, and with water, and possible to lock if you brought your own lock. The place is great for kids, and ok if you are willing to pay an extensive amount to go in to wolves, foxes, polar foxes, and lynx with the keepers. We did not, and were not able to see any of these animals. On the other hand, that means that their habitats were big enough for them to hide, and that is good animal welfare. There are plenty other animals to see, though, like wild boar, moos, reindeer, as well as domestic animals like goats, sheep, roosters, peacock, rabbits, cute Scottish highland cattle, and an abundance of the Norwegian fjording horse.

When we arrived just before 4pm, we were informed that all (feeding) activities were done for the day, which was earlier than printed on the website and in the brochure we had. Apart from the friendly lady at the reception, we only encountered grumpy staff that told our kids not to run and not to call out to each other, which didn’t make us feel very welcome either.
Nice walk through the park to see great wildlife, especially the Lynx and wolves. The restaurant was open but had very limited offering. Overall, an expensive 2 hours and wouldn’t come back until the customer experience improves.
Maybe it had to do with the fact that they were still in low season, as the website and reviews on TripAdvisor seem to give a more positive picture.

We stayed there for one night, The room was dirty on the level we had to clean ourselves because of the filth, the garbage can was filled with trash, there was left over from food and dirt in the floor and cabinets, we found ourselves cleaning and walking around with sandals inside the room, we felt bad to stay in this room, When we contacted the on-site staff and showed the dirt we were told to pass the message and apparently they did not prepare well for the cabin, did not clean and clear the garbage nor came back with a solution.

My wife and I visited the Langedrag Wildlife Park, along with my son, Norwegian daigter-in-law and our two Norwegian granddaughters, in August of this year. If you love wild animals in a natural environment, this is the place to visit. It is located in the mountains about two hours south of Oslo. The buildings are early Norwegian style with sod roofs. The assortment of animals include wolves, reindeer, Arctic foxes, wild goats, wild sheep, moose, musk ox, yak. lynx, wild boar, fijord ponies, Scottish highland cattle, rabbits and fowl. The reindeer and Arctic foxes can be hand-fed.. This is an unforgettable experience!

Nice mix of wildlife and farm animals. Some of the animals run around free and are very approachable. Our kids loved it.

The guided tour & feeding of the animals is followed by a huge bunch and the commentary is Norwegian only, so this makes it difficult to appreciate for foreign tourists. Other than that, very nice experience.
