Many of the creatures are part of special programmes to protect them from extinction.
To see the animals at close quarters, follow the 3-km (2-mile) walk around the park -and bring binoculars to spot the wide variety of birds. The route takes you between the enclosures via wooden bridges and along gravel paths. Admission in the summer includes a guided tour. The breeding and quarantine areas are not open to the public.
Nordens Ark is a particularly enjoyable outing for families as there are special children’s activities throughout the park. Youngsters can find out how animals adapt in relation to their food, enemies and the environment by being active themselves, trying things out and playing – even adults find these activities entertaining.
Overnight accommodation is also available.
