Húsdýragarðurinn - Petting Zoo and Park


Reykjavík's Zoo is definitely not the biggest park, but it sure is cute. It features Iceland's farm animals, including horses, as well as the few wild mammals who inhabit this cold place in the North.

Although the zoo originally focused on the Icelandic barnyard animals and the country's wild mammals, today it also includes a small exhibition of reptiles, amphibians, insects, and fish.

But "Húsdýragarðurinn" isn't just a zoo. It's also an adventure land for children. Here you can find a large, ship-themed playground, some play rides, castles, zip-lines, electric cars and boats, and more.

"Húsdýragarðurinn" is located in Laugardalur, one of Reykjavík's biggest green, public spaces. Nearby you'll find Laugardalslaug swimming pool, the botanical garden, and more places for sports and outdoor activities.
