Helsinki Zoo - Review

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.

  • I visited the zoo at Easter 2018, it has a very impressive entrance as you walk over a long bridge to enter the zoo properly. The sea was quite icy at the time of my visit and so it looked very beautiful. You then enter the grounds of the zoo and the signage is very good, it takes you on an easy loop around the island. We saw lots of lovely animals and we were lucky as a number of the large animals Tigers, Lions, Bears etc were up and about and we got some great photo opportunities. I would highly recommend this zoo for a visit and think it would also be great to visit in the Summer as I think the experience would be different. This deserves a visit for every season.

  • I liked that the zoo is on an island. Animals have room to move. Not very big zoo, walked it through with about 2 hours. Took the ferry to/from the island. Prices are little bit high(for me) but what can you do (small sandwich 5 euros). Recommended even when you come for a day trip to Helsinki.

  • Lovely zoo located on an island, easily accessible by bus 16. The zoo is designed in an humane way that create hiding places for animals to make them feel comfortable. Because of that, you might not be able to see some not-so-curious-about-human animals. The island is lovely and it is perfect for a picnic hangout close to the water but watch out angry ducks/birds protecting their nests. Recommend to visit in the summer :)

  • Great place and a lot to see. Not all the animals were there on that exact moment but since there's hundreds of animals, it didn't really matter. Really nice cafes and places for kids to play also. The free peafowls were a positive surprise!

  • A beautiful zoo on a cute little island. Adorable animals and gorgeous sceneries! A great place for visitors of all ages. Would recommend coming by using public transportation (bus/ferry) and not your own car if possible -the parking area is always very packed.
