Visit to the zoo was one of the main reasons to our trip to Ähtäri and weren't disappointed! The zoo had pretty wide selection of the animals in their natural habitat (or at least as natural as you can get in those kind of circumstances)...More

Ähtäri Zoo is located in a beautiful setting and feels more like natural park than zoo. The nicest things about Ähtäri zoo are that it does not feel crowded and children are actually able to see the animals. It is big enough to keep you...More

I was here second time in my life. It's still fantastic. Although it was windy and cold weather (29th April 2017), most of the animals could be seen.

A great zoo to see the wildlife of Finland. There are covered places throughout the zoo for cookouts.

We had the chance to see the baby bears, and many other animals. This is a very good chance to get to know about the fauna of this region, and of Finland. I would like to visit the zoo again, if I have time.

Technically, nothing wrong with Ähtäri. The age just shows and it is not too shiny, new or relevant anymore. They have tried to improve it by opening "petting zoo" next to actual zoo, but I still feel slightly disappointed after the visit.
