Orsa Bear Park is located in Grönklitt and is northern Europe's largest bear park. Here predators live in their natural habitat. Studying the animals in an environment where they are at home is an exciting and fascinating experience.

The park is open all year. 

Sweden's four large predators live in Orsa Bear Park in an environment that replicates their natural habitat.
