Get up close and personal with over 750 animals at , Scandinavia's largest zoo. Featuring a dolphin show and a dolphinarium complete with roller coasters, the zoo opened in 1969 and houses the only bottle-nosed dolphins in Sweden. A trip on the safari gondola sets you soaring high above the valley of African lions, while you'll find yourself under raptors at the birds of prey show. The zoo houses all kinds of creatures, from the Savannah to the Scandinavian woods, including llamas, brown bears, gorillas, tigers, elephants, and moose. There are several restaurants on site and you can rent a wagon to get around. Since many of the exhibits are completely outdoors, be sure to dress for the weather.

  • It is really fantastic park,where animals live in the environment,which is very closed to their original one.  more »
  • We visited with 2 other families in mid May and although the weather was a bit chilly out was still a nice trip. The zoo is beautiful and the dolfins are amazing. Cable car safari is a nice touch and ...  more »
  • Really well run and kept place. Plenty to see and do. Really really well done guys. The only question we had was - does the noise from the roller coasters annoy the animals?  more »

  • It's an amazing place where animals have ample space to roam and seemed to be treated very well. Pay attention to how they position their food for example.. The price of the entry ticket may seem high but it is worth every SEK! They have a good variety of animals and things to see. They have great activities scheduled throughout the day. Next time I would like to visit and stay at their hotel.
  • The safari gondola and dolphin show should not be missed and make this an excellent day out. Of course it can get crowded, especially around holidays, but that is to be expected. I also love the Gorilla and Chimp enclosures. If they are outside, one can watch them for ages...
  • Had an amazing time there with my Girlfriend.. Loads of walking but its all worth it when you know that the animals have plenty of roaming space. All the show are really informative and entertaining. 10/10 will walk again.
  • Fantastic park with loads of animals to see. Humongous park that will keep you and your children busy for a few days. Must see if you're in area.
  • Great zoo to walk in, lots of space and nice staff. The dolphin show is great as well as the rides, I highly recommend the cable car.
