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 :-(

Predator center is nice place for visit. If you want to show your kids great beasts like bear there's no other place. Here you can see a fully grown bear from close range and survive it. :) There isn't plenty of animals but they are...More

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.

Voimme suositella Suurpetokeskusta kaikille! Mukava paikka ja kiireetön kierros. Läheltä pääsee katsomaan karhuja ja...More

This is a rare jewel worth visiting because there is no other place like it the world. The collection of orphaned carnivorous local wildlife is a testament to the dedication of these two wonderful nature sensed brothers

This is not anything like a normal zoo. It is a place where man and bears are the heart of friends. Unbelievable experience to see how a man treats bears like they are dear members of his family as they are in fact.

Tänne pitää vartavasten ajella, mutta kyllä kannatti. Suomen suurpedot, karhujen lisäksi ilves teki muhun vaikutuksen. If you want to see Finnish brown bears, saved by a family after thei mother had died, and thus very friendly still towards their carer, this is the place to...More
