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 was nice to visit Kolmarden in winter. Not so much that was open. Surikatbebisen was soooooo cute.

  • My family planned to stop at Kolmarden as a break on our drive from Stockholm to Granna. Had I known how wonderful this zoo and amusement park was, we would have perhaps stayed the night nearby so we ...  more »

  • Great place for the whole family. Nice range of animals. Safari experience is amazing. Dolphin show is one of kind. Don't forget to take the ride on the roller coaster. Not much food range at offer. Maybe more vegan restaurants would be an important addition.
  • A great time for the whole family.(Don't miss Wildfire!) Make sure to download the app, it will help you to choose which shows you want to catch. If you are early (exactly when opening), just skip through to the Safari ride - that way you will avoid queues and work yourself back instead.Also, try not to grab a lunch by the dolphin show just after it ends, it will be packed at the fast food places. The area is quite hilly, be prepared with good walking shoes.
  • This is a must visit place. Enjoy this place in a great Swedish summer. Amazing collection of animals and very good view from gondola.Also recommended for Dolphin show and seal show! Excellent place in Nordic. Cost may be appearing more compared for similar shows in Singapore, Dubai and US ~ but considering if you are habitat in Nordic or if you are visiting Sweden --- it is must place to visit.
  • Great place for kids and adults! I wish they could have spent more time on which food they offer as the fast food does not rhyme very good with their sustainability message.
  • This zoo is quite amazing. From the roller coaster rides to the gondola ride that takes you around the zoo to see the animals. Fantastic layout and easy to get around. Many food choices to choose from. You can even rent a wagon to tote around your bags or small child. Not to miss before you leave is the dolphin show. Kids will absolutely love watching the dolphins perform for an audience.
