Otter Island

Otterlykke on its own island. The two charmers Nusse and Muffe live here.

Otter Island

The two motherless otter cubs had a rough start in life. In 2016, they were found abandoned in the wild in Northern Norway - and would not have survived if they had not been found by private individuals and taken 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.
