Luonnonmukaisissa oloissa ja siksi kaikkia eläimiä ei näkynyt. Quite at natural territory and therefore not all the animals to be seen. more »
We saw the reviews of this zoo and thought we'd visit while renting a cottage nearby. Some of the animals seemed very distressed, especially the lonesome deer and the pacing lynx. Even the elk, Finnish hirvi, was alone and without any interest in its enclosure. All in all a poor place. This is in stark contrast to our previous visit to Ähtäri Zoo, which is not, admittedly nearby but has well kept animals including a lively sloth of bears.
AnonymousCute animals, in particular, the Finns. Accommodation and food can be found, so there is no need to when you're hungry. Is suitable for the whole family:):) Liputkaan does not cost very much. The animals also received input and it is really fun! So I recommend to all animals, animal park, Crystal work.
AnonymousThe Zoo did not go, vacationing in a cabin on the Lake! great place! In the possession of the boat was well to mention the sauna, Grill, fine prestige House, etc. As the evening came not when booking, and they had a free House and there did a good discount! Olga thanks!
AnonymousA positive surprise! The animals got pretty darn close. The kids said they liked very much.
AnonymousThe children of love, a lot of Finnish forest inhabited.
