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.

  • The park is very large so good shoes are important, sturdy slopes from the car park is there and also from the hotel if you live there so it is long and steep, get a good map of the park it is difficult to find otherwise, you go away easily , and you want to avoid going wrong when you go so much anyway,

  • A high prized park but set in the beautiful nature of “skärgarden”. The park has a mix of animals, shows with seals/dolphins/birds but only narrated in Swedish. There is also a play area for the young...  more »
  • In this zoo was already 3-4 years ago, very much liked.... huge enclosures, a huge area of the zoo, there is at different times of presentation with animals. Wonderful show with dolphins, there is not a big amusement park, for children there is a large park of different akractioners with Mishka Bamse. There is a cable car over lions, bears, giraffes, antelopes and many others. To go around everything, and also the idea to see the whole day, and if with young children then and the day will not be enough. I advise very much:)

  • Excellently made and preserved. Animals kept in well conditions and look healthy and interested to outer world. Only negative point is the fact of closed restaurants on Friday, even though the park is only open Friday to Sunday (at current period). When paying the full amount, one can expect the full availability of offered services!
  • We enjoyed this very large, clean, well structured and maintained zoo. The beautiful nature and modern enclosure design makes the exhibits nice for animals and visitors. Animal had a lot of space. Information for visitors was good as well as gastronomic facilities - the food was extraordinarily good and tasty. Especially the gondola tour was something completely new for us. We were very happy and satisfied after our day there.
  • Nice place to spend the day. There is something for everyone. The employees were friendly. The animals have enough space and environmental enrichment. The food could taste better.
  • It’s a great place to visit during summer. One can have amazing experiences here, but the pick of the bunch is The Dolphin Show! It’s breathtakingly beautiful. Then you will have the chance to ride the biggest & the best rollercoaster of Europe.
  • Omg...it an awesome place to hangout.. Dolphin show took my heart away.. Loved the red panda and tiger show
