Fodor's Review

Snow leopards and reindeer like the cold climate here, at one of the world's most northern zoos. Entirely within the limits of this small island, the winding paths make the zoo seem larger than it actually is. Children love the outdoor play equipment. Between May and September the ferry departs on the full and half-hour from Market Square; the ticket for it includes entrance to the zoo. The trip takes 15 minutes; arrival and departure times are posted at the harbor. Alternatively, you can take the metro to the Kulosaari stop, cross under the tracks, and follow the signs for a 20-minute walk to the zoo. Bus connections are from Erottaja or Herttoniemi (weekends).
