More than a zoo. The animals have lots of space. Situated in a fantastic woodland. Quite a bit of walking and hilly but no steps. All walking is on good footpaths and suspended wooden walkways. Lots of playgrounds for kids and easy disabled access and suitability. Environmental projects and animal conservation work is fabulous. It gets really busy in high... More

This is great! My boyfriend and I visited it about 3 weeks ago, and we spent 6 hours or so walking around. There are -obviously- animals, but it is not only a zoo. They have research programmes and try to re-populate endangered species. Also, there's loads of nice games (for example a place where you can do long jump and... More

This place is always worth a visit (or more than one visit) at any time of year. All the animals are on the endangered list and kept in natural surroundings. Successful breeding programme (snow leopard, amur tiger etc). The annual season ticket is a good deal - or just a charitable contribution. Do not expect to see every animal in... More

We were a family consisting of 3 generations (seniors and 2 adults with their 2 daughters of 7 and 11) deciding suddenly to take the 2.5 hour's drive from Norway to visit a zoo we had not been to before. The weather was sunny but with a strong northerly wind so we took warm clothes with us. The roads are... More

I've quite a passion for wild animals and when I travel, the local zoo, wildlife park or aquarium is often my first port of call, especially if they house a lot of wildlife indigenous to that area. And I can honestly say that Nordens Ark is one of the best zoo's I've ever been to! It's incredibly well laid out... More

I had been meaning to visit Nordens Ark for a few years after hearing good reports from many fellow zoo keepers so I had high expectations upon arrival. Situated along Abyfjorden, approximately one & a half hours drive north of Gothenburg, Nordens Ark is surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife. I have visited many zoos/bioparcs/wildlife parks now but Nordens Ark... More

If you´re into walking beautiful parks with a chance to see and learn about endangered species from Sweden (both wild and domesticated) and all over the world that may live all year around outside in the Swedish climate this is the place to visit, with or without children. Full day excursion!
