  • 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.
  • 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
  • The place is very difficult, sad and can see that. Became one of the most evil mind after a visit to the 😢, I do not recommend to anyone. The place should be closed and put in a block. Valvookohan no one in authority in this place. animal protection association should take notice!
