The animals are in terrible conditions. They have half the space of the childrens play area and are stuck in tiny dirty pens in tiny sheds. The seals swim the same small loop for hours exhibiting captivity stress behaviour, all the animals try to hide...More

We purchased the Reykjavik City Card which gave us entry to the zoo. The zoo was a lot better than I thought it would be. We had a really enjoyable couple of hours wandering around. We particularly liked the seals, reindeer and arctic fox. The...More

My wife and her Icelandic friend wanted to do some shopping for a special dinner and dropped me and my daughter at the Reykjavik family zoo. I did not have too many expectation, but it turned out to be an entertaining 75 minutes. The 'zoo'...More

The zoo area is mainly populated by farm animals. It's not really a petting zoo, so don't try to stroke them! They do have seals, foxes and mink as well. I see comments about welfare conditions on here. I accept others' points of view however...More

This Zoo has Icelandic animals only - a good chance to see Arctic Foxes, seals, etc., and is almost a petting zoo. Animals seem well cared for.

DO NOT VISIT THIS PLACE! Its absolutely terrible for the animals! They smaller animals have small small cages with no daylights, walking at concrete. The seals has a small water cage with no where to hide. It’s like a zoo from the 90th and I...More

It doesn’t cost a lot to get in here but that’s not surprising given the fact there are barely any animals to see here. The very few that are here you can pet so that’s nice but I feel the animals should be living in...More
