We stayed a few days in Rovaniemi and wanted to take a day trip and the zoo was a perfect fit for our plans. The zoo has a wooden walkway/path that has arrows pointing the direction one should follow and these took us through the...More

Nice excursion in Summer to see the local animals from a close range. In the parc there is only 1 small kiosk so it is a good idea to bring your own picnic. It will take you approx 2 hrs to see it all, so...More

The zoo was fantastic! There was a set path that took you through the zoo. The path wasn’t always wide enough if you wanted to pass someone! There were a couple of places you could stop and sit down, however I felt like there should...More

The park is really nice and we got to see all the animals. Nice pathways through the forest. No stairs and easy to walk. The icebears was wonderful to look at.

Bears, birds, beets, brilliant. Enclosures are massive and most animals were active. I saw lots of baby animals because I went in summer. The feedings were good also, got rid of a few annoying kids. €17 for adult

A sizable zoo with many classic Finnish animals, most of which were asleep or missing completly. Set up in a rather fun way so that you never miss an animal, the zoo is beautifully designed to fit amongst the natural landscape so it feels like...More

Nice park! Well kept, spacious and well spaced kiosks and facilities:-) Feeding of the polar bears Was a highlight! Happens at 1230. Points of improvement: No info on feeding-hours

Quite broad range of animals, but many of them tend not to show themselves to the public. The polar bears are impressive and they are worth alone the whole visit.

Agree with the above comment.. 3-4 hours at the Zoo, 2 hours for up and down travel. The polar bears are a good watch.. If you go in winter, the wooden paths have snow/ice on them.. extra caution!
