Slakki Petting Zoo and Family Park
Life’s simple pleasures
If you are travelling with small children in Iceland this summer, Slakki Petting Zoo and Family Park is a delightful stop on the Golden Circle Route. The park is bursting with all manner of cute and cuddly creatures that are just as curious about you as your children will be about them: hens & chicks, calves, kittens, puppies, ducks, geese, mice and even aquariums full of tropical fish. On display this year are a couple of newcomers to the zoo- two Icelandic foxes! While they are not for petting, these normally elusive wild animals are fun for adults and children alike to observe up close. When the weather is fine, you can relax outside on the terrace and enjoy a variety of food and refreshments from the restaurant/café, including home-made cakes, sandwiches and hamburgers with fries. The little ones will be able to burn off energy on the playground, and older children and adults can have a round of indoor mini-golf or try their hand at a game of billiards. No day out would be complete without ice cream, and Slakki Restaurant offers a selection of frozen treats from Kjörís, one of Iceland’s largest ice cream manufacturers.
Slakki Petting Zoo and Family Park is open daily from 11.00 to 18.00 all summer long and is located near the Skálholt Cathedral in Laugarás.
