Reykjavik Park & Zoo.
The Zoo section opened 1990. It’s main focus is on Icelandic farm animals as well as several wild native species. 19 animal species counting about 150 individuals live in the Zoo. We emphasize on showing as much variety in colours and variations as well as both genders and its young ones.
In the Zoo you will find: Horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, foxes, minks, reindeers, seals, hens, chickens, turkey, pigeons, rabbits, guinea pigs, geese, ducks, dogs and cats. Presently we also have some rear visitors, wild birds that need treatment.
The Zoo serves as a rehabilitation centre for wild animals in need before they are set free again.
The Park section has small family rides as well as other activities and facilities for a great day out for the whole family.
You can enjoy these rides in the summertime.
Swing rides, Boat rides, Jump rides, Train rides, Horse back rides
The latest division at the Zoo is an Aquarium opened in December 2004, focusing on species from the North-Atlantic Ocean. Although the Aquarium is in a temporary housing it already contains over 20 fish species plus other ocean creatures such as molluscs, crabs and echinoderms.
The Science World has become a very popular part of our site in the past years. There you can try various hands on exhibits like measure how loud you scream or blow huge soap bubbles. Like the Aquarium the Science World is in temporary housing.
Refreshments are available in the café which is open all year. During the summer a snack bar/shop is open too, where visitors can buy hot dogs to barbeque on a large outdoor grill.
