A few days ago we visited Vassfaret Bear Park near Flå. The park covers 95 acres (380 decares) of land. Approximately 13 acres (50 decares) are alotted to the large animals, the elk and the bear. You may easily pass most of the day here in the open nature, walking, and being close to the animals, enjoying the peace and quiet and the beautiful nature. When the park is open, homely fare is available at Bertestugu, or, if preferred, fastfood from Bamsebua. If you bring your own food, you may prepare it over the open fire in the lavvo (laplanders’ tent), or use the gas barbecue.
I have to admit that it felt a bit weird seeing these animals within fences, it didn’t feel right.
