  • A beautiful landscaped Zoo with spacious enclosures for the local wildlife. However, the entry is quite expensive: €10 to 12 years, otherwise 13 / person.

  • Really cool Zoo. Must to visit if you're in this region. A lot of animals of northern region with big dedicated areas.
  • Good place but little expensive.
  • 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.
  • Ok
  • Animals is a lot of and visibility is good. In General, animals thrive in the open air and on display. The paths are also at a good level. Unfortunately, the price level is high and even costly. Apparently ulkomaanturistit to raise prices quite a bit and rely on the number of visitors to remain the same from one year to the next. In the summer a great place and if you forget about the pricing, so you should go see what all the animal park you can find. The location is, I think, a good and isontien along the way. 👍
