Lovely park, build for the animals!

This is an perfekt park to have a nice walk in, and see some Red Listed animals. Hope that we save them for the next coming generations.

Minus 1, snowing, early January. Not a good recipe for an outdoor excursion. I traveled there with the expectation of paying a lot of money and being back in the car within an hour. However after walking round for 4 hours and about 5km walk we returned to the car totally exhilarated and surprised at how much fun we had... More

We passed this zoo on the way to Smogen and decided to spend a day here. We were glad we did as it is a wonderful zoo/park and we had a really nice time pottering around. The site is quite large so make sure you wear comfy footwear! The enclosures are a really good size and the animals seem happy... More

This is a must! A beautifull animal forrest in also beautifull Bohuslan. 80 different species live in their own habitat. Wild mamals, reptiles, birds, amphibians, insects. Most come from a similar climate to that in Scandinavia.The farm animals can be seen on the other side of the road. Very clean.

Nice park, not a zoo, so all the animals are not always visible. Though a little expensive, its the money worth. Well maintained, and all the animals looked happy and healthy. We spent 4 hours and had a great time.

Not normally a fan of zoos but did like this one. There's a fair amount of walking to do and you need to be fairly patient to spot some of the animals. Nicely laid out. Reasonable amount of English language explanation. Picnic areas throughout (we were out of main season so kiosks around the place closed and only the main... More

This is a MUST for all families who appreciate the animal world particularly with younger children. Very well worth a visit.

There is a also a petting zoo with farm animals across the raod, though we did not visit. The enclosures are large, and the animals... More

It's not so much a zoo more a mini world for the animals that are there primarily for breeding. Altogether an excellent experience and so well laid out. You are not guaranteed to see all of the cats, but if you are quiet and patient they may well show themselves.

We've been at several zoos around the world and we're kind of disappointed at Nordens ark. Nicely built with lovely parks but where are the animals? Often they just a few animals at each exhibition making it really hard to find them. Hardly saw any animals really...
