Experiences at the Aquarium

Otter Island

Otter paradise on an island of their own. Otter Island is home to our little charmers Nusse, Muffe and Pia.

Otter Island

Our three orphaned otter pups had a rough start to life. Back in 2016, they were found abandoned in the wild in Northern Norway — they would not have survived if their rescuers had not found them and brought them home .

Otters are both wild and lively by nature and, as they grew, it became necessary to find a more permanent home for them. Our colleagues at Lofoten Aquarium asked us if we could take the otters in. They arrived here soon after and, within a few months, we had completed our otter enclosure next to the seal enclosure — an entire island! The name "Otter Island" ("Oterøya") was the obvious choice. Here, the otters have plenty of space to explore, as well as a separate lighthouse where they can seek shelter. In the underwater observatory, the otters get up close to our visitors – they love socialising, are very vocal, and adore our visitors. The otters are fed every day at 2.00pm, with talks in both Norwegian and English.
