The Helsinki Zoo is located on an island not far off the coast of the Helsinki Mainland. The zoo is spread all over the island and makes a spacious home for the 150 species of animals that live there. The zoo is perfect for a day trip with the family.

There is a huge variety in the species that have been conserved here. From wetland animals to tundra animals and even rainforest animals can all be found here. The habitat created for the tropical animals is especially remarkable since Finland is a cold country. Nevertheless you will be able to see mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and even insects belonging to various regions and species here.

In February they also play host to the art meets ice festival which is an ice sculpting event. If you intend to go around that time do not forget to check out this very interesting exhibition.

  • Love this zoo. Amazing place with great animals well cared for. Very important information and conservationist attitude. Amazing to reach kids and adults alike about conservation. Cafes and plenty of places to eat. I would recommend and visit again anytime

  • Visited Cats Night in September. Cool visit with food viewings. Enjoyed the whole place while spending time there. Lovely to see animals so well taking care of. Big surrounding areas and good vegetation as well calm corners to hide in from the people.

  • Did you know lions & tigers stay out the whole year? Me neither, but it was cool to see them in January at -10c with no-one else around! Nice Zoo with quick ferry access to city

  • We liked the zoo! Interesting walk. Back in the city I recommend to go by boat-taxi.

  • Really enjoyed it. Love the free roaming peacocks and variety of animals. There was a lot of rest areas and washrooms which is great.
