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.

  • A lot of activities for kids as well as animals from around the world. Especially fun if your kids are fans of the Norwegian author Thorbjørn Egner.  more »
  • A pet and activity park that is clearly the best in the season-more activities open, browse pick Hill forest and the evening show with Captain Sabertooth available. Outside the season they are only open on weekends. Although these activities cost extra should they be open also out of season. Is a water park that one can buy into and there are packages that are good.

  • I will not be tired of the Zoo and there is always something to experience, whether it is high season or low season, Sun or rain. 12 month membership is good when staying in the city, then I can be a whole day, or multiple short trips-in all seasons.
