Dyreparken Zoo and Amusement Park

Dyreparken zoo and amusement park is Norway`s most frequently visited attraction covering an area of 150 acres of wild Nordic terrain.

It is totally different from other European zoos, which are characterised by bars and heavy padlocks. In Dyreparken, the animals have wide open spaces in which to roam – however, the visitors are still able to get up close to observe some of the most beautiful animals – like the red panda, which is threatened by extinction.

The park is 11 km (6 mi) east of town. Dyreparken is a complete park, consisting of an entertainment park; a theme park; and a zoo. The zoo contains an enclosure for Scandinavian animals such as wolves and moose, a large breeding ground for Bactrian camels, and exotic animals such as alligators, orangutans, Siberian tigers and a variety of apes and monkeys. The Africa exhibition allows you to move along a bridge observing native savanna animals such as giraffe and zebras.

In an open air area you will find some of the smaller monkeys run wild amongst the trees and swing on the ropes while you can move amongst them! Inside the rain forest, in the humid atmosphere, dark and scary passages lead the way to crocodiles, alligators and many other reptiles – You will find more than 138 different species living in as much freedom as possible in a natural environment.
