I had to give this place 1 star, only because 0 stars is not possible. Firstly the guide spoke no English, we were led around what is basically a private zoo reading the badly translated information and wondering what we had missed. The wolf (dog)...More

We did this day trip with the family. We knew there were baby bears so the expectations were high. A small place that takes care of animals that need help. There are reindeer, dog wolfs, fox, bear, wolfs, lynx with cubs.. So adorable. I'm not...More

Visited late May when the bears were coming out of hibernation. Looks to be run on a budget but provides home and sanctuary for these mighty predators who would otherwise have died. An excellent chance to get up and close to these wonderful creatures. The...More

Small enclosures, rescued animals. Visitors can go around only in groups, not on their own. The guide feeds the animals apples and berries, so you can only see them at to the fence beg for food. Humiliating experience for the animals & terrible to watch....More

Small park with 5 different predators; although they said that there is translation in English, the translation was very very summary and you didn't learn anything but the names and ages of the animals :-(

The animals are not living in acceptable conditions and it is quite a depressing place. The cages are way too small and the animals are simply waiting by the fences to be fed.

We can highly recommend this place! Entry 10€/5€ and tour is 45-60minutes, length is about 500meters. Tour is without rush, you have time to look and take pictures! Original place indeed! Voimme suositella Suurpetokeskusta kaikille! Mukava paikka ja kiireetön kierros. Läheltä pääsee katsomaan karhuja ja...More
