The Zoo section opened 1990. Its 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
