The lynx is the only wild cat living in Norway. I'm so fortunate to be able to take photos of this shy cat, which lives around my place up in the North of Norway. For more information about the lynx click on the "project" page in the menu.
In the area where I live we have two different types of eagles. The white-tailed eagle and the golden eagle. The white-tailed eagle is the largest bird of prey in Norway and found along the coast, while the golden eagle is often found in areas with not much human activity like mountain ranges or valleys. Nonetheless in Northern Norway you can spot a golden eagle flying along the coast.
Around winter 2010/11 the herring started to migrate into the fjords of Northern Norway followed by huge numbers of whales, mainly humpbacks and orcas.
There is also a good chance to see one of the smallest cetaceans in the world all year around; the harbour porpoise.
"Dovrefjell" is the realm of the musk ox and the only place in Norway where you are able to see this almost prehistorical looking animal.
Did you know that the musk ox is closely related to the mountain goat?
