Visited the Polar Zoo yesterday on 14 Dec 2012. It was freezing cold but a nice cosy fireplace plus the zoo provides proper warm clothing that shielded us totally from the cold and the wind, great and friendly staff. The visit was beautiful in winter and the animals are active and beautiful. The arctic foxes and wolves are very friendly and we spent a leisurely and idyllic time with them for a large part of the visit. Will definitely recommend a visit in winter. Will drop by in summer for a visit if I am in the vicinity of Norway.
