Dyreparken, Kristiansand

Part zoo and part amusement park, Dyreparken represents one of Norway's most popular attractions and will entertain both children and adults alike. View over 140 native Scandinavian and exotic species, such as tigers, lions, giraffes, lynx, and apes. Stop by the sea lion pool to watch its residents interact and play. Head over to the amusement park area and take a ride on the log run, the bob run, the carousel, or Norway's longest slide. There is also a waterpark with attractions suitable for the whole family. Check the website for show times of the kid's show with Captain Sabertooth, a visitor favorite!

  • As always a great experience for all the family. What one might begin to think of is activities for the older kids, otherwise very good.

  • Grandma, parents and two young children - we all enjoyed our day at Dyreparken, even though we had to dodge the showers. There's a variety of entertainment here - animals big and small, trains to sit ...  more »
  • I've visited zoos in many places in the world, and the Zoo in Kristiansand is absolutely the best i've been in! Here the animals have relatively large areas to live in, and the Park is run very seriously and as good as possible for the animals. Also great to go hiking in the park outside of the high season. Many restaurants, and nice place to have events for the business community. In addition, the spectacular performances with "Captain Beefheart", pick Hill forest and sjøreøverbyen Abra port and water park.
