Reykjavik Park and Zoo has been around for a long time and a visit is a popular activity for Icelandic families on a Sunday afternoon. There is particular excitement in spring, when the baby animals are born.

Spring has just arrived. Already 8 baby goats have been born in the zoo. Chickens of Icelandic hens have just started to hatch, colourful as the breed is known for being.

It’s also a family park, with rides for the children as well as other activities.
