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.

  • Overall, a nice park with some great shows and a spectacular 20 minutes ride above the animal pens thanks to the safari cable car. Animals have quite a bit of space and the caregivers we met are nice. One thing that felt weird is, as much as the dolphin show is great, seeing these animals kept in an indoor swimming pool is a bit disappointing.
  • The animal variety is great, their enclosures are really big and unique. The rides are really well themed and Wildfire is a world class coaster! The restaurants variety is really good and there is ambiance music all throughout park. The only thing it needs is a transition coaster from Delfinexpressen and Wildfire.
