Download our app
Instead of buying our park map in paper form, download our GPS based app. In the app you can follow different park walks, read about our animals and get tips about where in their enclosure they might be found.
Dogs and pets
We love them too, but not in the park. For the safety and health of our animals, we can’t let you bring pets inside.
Don’t feed our animals
The animals at Nordens Ark have a diet that’s specially designed for them. Unsuitable food can make them ill. Various infections and diseases can be passed from humans to animals.
Show respect for the animals
Always remember that you’re a guest in their home. Don’t frighten them by banging on terrariums, screaming or disturbing them in other ways.
Don’t climb over or under the safety barriers, and don’t sit on them. They are there to keep you at a safe distance from the wild animals, and to avoid accidents and injury.
Barbecues are allowed only by the playground at the entrance to the animal park, and at the play area at the Farm. Bring charcoal or a disposable barbecue.
Smoking in the park
Smoking at Nordens Ark is not allowed.
