Home Forums Reply To: Bears in Finnnark


    You will highly unlikely come across a bear on your travels in the North. Bears in northern Scandinavia are located in remote areas away from roads and towns.

    Brown bears are, by their nature, fairly shy creatures. They are not aggressive by nature and will stay away from humans and keep to themselves where possible. The females tend to stay within small geographical areas, but the males will roam over much wider distances.

    I would ensure food is not left out, but that goes for any time you wild camp, as mice and other creatures will take the opportunity if it prevents itself. You don’t need a spray or anything like that. You’re not going hiking in remote areas, are you? Sticking to roads is never an issue with bears in Scandinavia.
