Wildlife in Norway & Finnskogen

Finnskogen has a rich variety of wildlife. The forest is home to species such as wolves, bears, lynx, wood grouse, moose, deer, eagles, squirrels and the rare Great Grey Owl. If you are lucky, you might see some of the wildlife when staying at PAN Treetop Cabins. You do not need to fear the predators. They are afraid of people and will run away as soon as they hear the sound of people nearby. Using the nature at Finnskogen is perfectly safe. If you have a keen eye, you might spot tracks or excrements from the animals!

The lake of Gjessåsjøen is also an interesting area to visit. This is one of the most interesting places for birds in the whole of southern Norway. The lake is home to over 170 different species. This is considered a very exciting destination for bird watchers and nature lovers.

At PAN Treetop Cabins we want the animals to be in their natural habitat. That is why there are no feeding posts to attract the wildlife. We want to keep the influence of humans at a minimum. But this makes spotting the wildlife even more exciting!
